I was grabbing old classics off of the top-list page and accidentally ended up with this bit of drivel. Not actually written by or really having anything to do with Aristotle, it's a random 18th century text that just name-drops him in to make its largely fallacious advice for young wives seem more useful. Skip it unless you really love old texts and 18th century English grammar/spelling doesn't give you a headache.
