Pages of History -- A. Victor Segno's 'How to Be Happy Tho' Married'

  How to Be Happy Tho' Married  

A. Victor Segno The library at the Daily Mirror HQ recently acquired the elusive work “How to Be Happy Tho’ Married” by our favorite charlatan and con man, A. Victor Segno.

Although we have several of Segno’s works (“The Law of Mentalism” and “How to Live 100 Years”) “How to Be Happy Tho’ Married” has been near the top  of our desiderata list because Segno abandoned his wife in Los Angeles and ran off with another woman. 

As such, we hoped to find amusement in this little 1901 pamphlet (which cost more than $25 in 2009 dollars), but it seems that in some ways little has changed in more than a century:

“Marriage, like all human institutions, has its advantages and disillusions; therefore, it should be entered into with care and the selection of a partner founded upon good judgment.”


"Marriage is the door through which many deluded mortals have returned to earth -- and their senses."


We’re still looking for “How to Have Beautiful Hair.”
