A wife should be ....

“ A wife should be beneath her husband in four things or else she will despise him: age, height, wealth and lineage. She should be better than him in four others: beauty, manners, character and scrupulousness in matters of religion.”

Is it too jocular to suggest that a wife should be "beneath" her husband in FIVE things: "age, height, wealth, lineage... and bed"???

It would appear, Grimble, that you prefer the missionary position without variation. Fair enough, dear.

Far from it - however I'd have to meet you in an intimate setting to be able to appraise you of the full range of my repertoire in this area!

Andromeda said...

I suppose we shall have to wait and see!

grimble said...

The length of wait is entirely at your own discretion, madam!

Sir, how long the wait is to be rests with you, too. For while you know where to find me, I have no means of contacting you. Passive and patient, I await your next communication.
