This is a question Marjorie urges her readers to consider very carefully. Thankfully, I could indeed afford a husband. Even better, he has happily agreed to use his IT skills, which I could most definitely not afford, to make this blog much more interesting visually than its current rather bare appearance. This is a highly prized orchid in my book.
I am also happy to report that Marjorie eventually decided she could afford a husband and by all accounts seems to have been happily married herself. I like to think she’d have shared her eminently sensible advice via a blog if she was writing today, in between interesting evenings spent with beaux and wielding a cocktail shaker with a crowd of friends.
