About the Book

Man and Wife was written by Wilkie Collins and it is the second of his novels in which social questions give the main momentum of the plot. This novel was printed in 1870, dedicated to Frederick and Nina Lehmann with whom Collins remained during much of its compilation. Their musical proficiency on the violin and piano appear in the characters of Julius Delamayn and his wife. The social issue which manages the plot is the state of Scots marriage law, at the time the novel was written, any couple who were legally entitled to marry and who affirmed that they were married, either before witnesses or in writing, were regarded in Scotland as being legally married. Man and Wife strikes both Irish and Scottish marriage laws as well as asserting the case for a Married Woman's Property Act. It analyses the inferior position of women in 18th century UK and the issue of irregular marriages in Scotland. The book also works against the craze of atheleticism, as leading to moral and physical corruption, expressed in the villain, Geoffery Delamayn. This novel is about the discrepancies of the marriage laws in 19th century Britain and about the social question of the present rage for muscular exercises on the health and ethics of the growing generation of Englishmen. Man and Wife is very funny and sarcastic.

About Author

Wilkie Collins

Wilkie Collins was born on January 8, 1824. He was the child of a famous scenery painter, William Collins. His life as a youngster started in 1835 at the Maida Hill Academy, followed by a long-term interference where he went with his folks and younger sibling, Charles, to France and Italy. He later reviewed that he had learned more in Italy 'among the view, the photos, and individuals, than I at any point scholarly at school.' After he returned to England, his tutoring continued at Cole's life experience school at High bury Place. It was here that he started his vocation as a narrator to pacify the residence bully. At age 22, Collins turned into a regulation understudy at London's Lincoln Inn. Collins was called to the bar in 1851, that very year he met writer Charles Dickens, with whom he kept firmly connected for the majority of his life, including voyaging together and teaming up on many works. Rather than providing legal counsel, Collin embraced writing as his calling. In 1848, a year after his dad passed on, he distributed his first book, The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A. In his lifetime, he composed 25 books, over 50 brief tales, somewhere around 15 plays, and more than 100 verifiable pieces among 1848 and his passing in 1889. The genuine lady dressed in white was Caroline Graves who presumably met Wilkie in the spring of 1856. She was a widow, initially came from Gloucestershire, and had a youthful little girl, Harriet Elizabeth (generally known as Carrie). Caroline and Wilkie never hitched yet lived respectively from around 1858 for the most amazing aspect of 30 years. About 1864, in any case, Wilkie met the other lady in his life, Martha Rudd, potentially in Great Yarmouth close to her home in Winterton, or maybe in London where she might have come to fill in as a servant for his mom's home. Wilkie was 40 years of age while Martha was only 19. To give their contact level of decency, for they likewise never hitched, Wilkie and Martha accepted the characters of Mr. and Mrs. William Dawson, the name given to their three kids, Marian, Harriet, and Charley. Whether Martha's appearance caused the impermanent break between Wilkie and Caroline, or whether she gave him a final offer over marriage is dubious, however, in October 1868 Caroline out of nowhere hitched one, Joseph Clow. Carrie and Frank Beard were simply the observers while Collins was available at the function in Marylebone Parish Church. By April 1871, be that as it may, Caroline had gotten back to Gloucester Place and kept on residing with Wilkie until his passing in 1889. She passed on in 1895 and is covered in a similar grave in Kensal Green Cemetery.
