"This book is a reprint of Stevenson's four-part essay on the institution of marriage-its occasional harmonies, its potential for dischord, and the often deceiving biophysical processes which can lure even the wisest of men into matrimony. Hubbard must have found some of these insights useful in analyzing his own unpleasant marriage, which by this time was approaching its legal termination. (Bertha had sued for divorce in 1902 and would receive her final decree in 1904.)" -Ogle. Ogle OB-083-03; McKenna, 96.
