Don't throw the baby out with the bath water

The origin of the phrase came in late years when most people get married only in the month of June, because they use to take bath once a year in may and think, still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. The bath tub is a huge one filled with hot water. The men have the privilege of using the clean water, and then followed by other sons and men, then women and finally the children’s. After all this is babies, by the time the water gets so dirty you could lose some thing in that water, hence came the saying “Don't throw the baby out with the bath water.".
