Good advice for all husbands!

From the American Civil War until the Roaring 20's most men wore pocket watches. Wrist watches became fashionable after WWI, but pocket watches still made ideal gifts, since they could be personalized with a photo or engraving, like the ones shown here.

A story is told of a couple who were celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. The husband was asked to reveal the secret of successful marriage.  He explained that he grew up in an orphanage and worked hard for everything he got. He had no time to date girls until Sarah swept him off his feet. She was the only girl he ever dated, and eventually she managed to get him to propose to her.

On their wedding day, Sarah's Dad took the new groom aside and gave him a small gift. He promised, "Within this gift is all you need to know to have a happy marriage." The nervous young man hastily unwrapped the gift. It was a large, golden pocket watch. Across the cover of the watch a five-word reminder had been engraved -- a reminder he would see whenever he checked the time. The five words were, "Say something nice to Sarah." Husbands, how often have you checked the time today?
