This is one of a pair of caricatures showing contrasting marriages. This scene was engraved as The Tables Turned. Miseries of Wedlock. A couple fight over the dinner table, spilling
both their meal and the baby onto
the floor. The other scene, called The Comforts of Matrimony. A Good Toast shows a scene of domestic bliss.
