f Sr ~FKIDAY, JANUARY 3, 1969 DEAR ABBY . Paper-signing Wife Should See Lawyer THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABLY: Before I married my husband he asked mo to sinn some papers s:iying I was not to share in any of Ins worldly possession during his lifetime, and would not be entitled to anything should he ! die. He signed ihe major nnrt; of his property and assets ovtv: l.o a lady friend. i In his defense, I should men- i lion that he has never been! married before, and he is my i third husband, so maybe he isj just playing it safe. I married j the first at 15, and mat didn't! work out. My second husband was an alcoholic, and that ended in divorce too,. Do you think hr really loves me, or is ho taking me tor a fool. WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Regardless of what you signed, see your own lawyer and find out how binding it is. A man who would ask his wife to disclaim all his worldly possessions during his lifetime, and would leave her unprovided for should he precede he in death, doesn't sound like much of a bargain to me, especially after having signed over the lion's share of his assets to B "lady friend." (F .S. If you ever find out why this man felt he needed a wife, let me know.) DEAR ABEY: The following is from a letter I recently received form an out-of-state relative: Let's make a deal. Next year instead of sending each other Christmas presents, send me a check, and I will do the same for you. It will save us both a lot of trouble." Abby, I never considered shopping for Christmas presents a let of trouble. Besides, what's the sense of my sending her a check for $25 and her sending me the same. How do you feel about, it? I should add, this relative needs more money like 1 need another bellv button. EEWILD)RED IN BOSTON ; DEAR BEWILDERED: I agree j | wifli you Toll her to just blow j i you a kiss at Christmas and I you'll do the same for her. I i DEAR ABBY: I really dig this j | guy I'll ••all Phil. My father j checked up on him and now he! ; won't let me go out wih him ; any more. Phil is a musician j ile pluys the drums. My tamer 'says that: a drummer is no mu- s ; < inn — that a person who plays the violin or piano can caM himself a musician, but a drum is no instrument. Is that, right? Also my father found out thai Phil is 32 not 26, like he said he was. i ^o I have two questions to ask: (1> Is a drummer a musician? (2) As long as a guy is a gentleman, don't you think I should be allowed to go out with him? I am 19, but I am very mature for my age. Thank you. DIGS FHIL DEAR DIGS: Yes, a drummer is indeed a musician, but what's all this jazz about his lying about his age. Sorry, but I agree with your father. A 32- year- old drummer should beat it if he can't play it straight with a IS- year- old girl. CONFIDENTIAL TO "ANYONE FOR WHOM IT IS NOT YET TOO LATE:" The gestation period of a mother's advice is anywhere from one week lo 50 years.
