Bookclub preview: Delphine

My goodness, I am ever so sick of reading phrases like this:

"Woman's primary happiness is marriage to a man she respects as much as she loves; who is her superior in mind and character; and who makes all decisions for her, not because he crushes her will but because he enlightens her reason and gives support for her weakness."

Really, I haven't read anything so irritating since La Nouvelle Heloise! I want to just throw it across the room!
