  "Don't begin your married life by expecting too much. If you expect little, you will be saved a good deal of disappointment"
                                                                                          From "Don'ts for Wives" book.

 
These well-made, tiny books by Restoration Hardware are something your guests will be talking about. They are not only full of the husband/wife wisdom but the size and the price (4.95) are smart too. 
OK, future Husbands, here are some good ones for you:
 "Don't throw cigar-ends into the bowl of water your wife keeps in front of the gas-fire. They are not ornamental, and she will not be pleased".
Or
 "Don't sharpen pencils all over the house as you walk about".
Not quite practical? How about this one for wives: 
"Don't object to your husband cycling in to the country just because you don't cycle". It is getting better.. 
This is my personal favorite: "If your cook isn't up to French dishes, be satisfied with English ones cooked to perfection" Will do!
