"Like all Dr. Stopes's writing, it is clear, thoughtful, penetrating, and undoubtedly is a scientific contribution towards a subject which a decade ago would have been taboo. . . . Our advice is for women to read it and for men to read it, for there is here stated a real problem which is specifically English."--English Review.
" Dr. Marie Stopes has endeavoured to meet the need of healthy young people of the educated class for information as to the sexual responsibilities of marriage. Though not a medical woman, the author has special qualifications for this task: with high scientific attainments she combines literary skill, sympathetic insight, idealism, and more than common courage. ... To the married and to those about to marry, provided they are normal in mind and body and not afraid of facing facts, this should prove a most helpful book."--British Medical Journal.
"It is probably the most important contribution to the sex problem that has ever been made really accessible to the English public."--Cambridge Magazine.
"In saying that, unless the art of love is studied, marriage cannot bear its full fruits, she sees, as the greatest thinkers have always seen, that marriage is a symbol of transcendental significance. ... In exquisite quality of understanding the book is a contribution to its subject, which in time will receive the recognition that it deserves."--The Hospital.
" In the West End just now everybody is reading ' Married Love.' . . . Frank, straightforward truth finds no greater admirers than in the heart of Mayfair, and that is the reason for the success of Dr. Marie Stopes's book."--Mr. A. L. Humphreys in The 'Book Monthly.
"This is a remarkable book which gives much information regarding the physiology of marital life. ... All medical men and medical women should read and study this book. They cannot fail to glean from its pages valuable information."-- Medical Times. London: A. C. Fifield, 13 Clifford's Inn, E.C.4
