A THE OTTAWA HERALD ^ Thursday, October 12, 1961 Ann Landers He Asks Too Much Dear Ann Landers: My husband's brother is in a mental hospital about 20 miles from here. He isn't violent or harmful, but lie has the mentality of an 11- year-old. Every weekend we drive over to get him and he spends Saturday evening and Sunday with us. He sleeps in the same bedroom with our 10-year-old son and this worries me sick. Our son asks why Uncle Gerald talks to himself and why he laughs so much. We can't ac- rept any invitations on weekends and we ion't want to ask anyone over here. When our children's friends come over we worry for fear they'll offend uerald. The ANN atmosphere is terribly tense. I hate to complain to my husband, but I just can't take his brother every weekend of my life. I don't want to seem unsympathetic but we have a life of our own to live.—S.O.I. Dear S.O.I: Your husband is asking too much of his family. Every other weekend is often enough for Gerald to come to visit. And he should not share your son's bedroom under any circumstances. He should be driven back to the hospital to spend the night. Explain to your children and their friends that Uncle Gerald is mentally ill and that he needs understanding. Tell them to treat him as they would any other adult and to make allowances for his peculiarities. Dear Ann Landers: I am a divorced woman with three lovely children. The man I've been going with for two years is a widower. He has four of the wildest, most ill-mannered kids I've ever seen in my life. His youngest child is so mean and destructive that they can't even keep a canary in the house. Something "mysterious" has happened^, to every pet they've ever owned". v The only arguments Clayton and I have are over the children. He says my son is a sissy and he thinks my girls are stupid. I've told him that his children are savages and if I was in charge of them they'd toe the mark or else. Do you think we could have a good marriage in the light of these facts? I want to marry him but I'm worried. — JANGLED NERVES * Dear Jangled: There are seven very good reasons why you should not marry Clayton, His four and your three. You say the only arguments you ever have are over the children. That can put any marriage on the rocks. The word from here is no. Dear Ann: My brother and I married into the same family. This means we have the same in-laws. My brother had a nasty argument with his wife's parents and they are not on speaking terms. I'm planning a party for my parent's 35th wedding anniversary next month. Of course I want to .invite my in-laws but I'm afraid of trouble because of the bad feeling with my brother. I'd hate to have the party ruined by a battle royal, and knowing the tempers involved here, Ann, anything could happen. Please tell me what to do.-B.T.X. Dear B.T.X.: Ignore the feuding. Invite everyone just as if you knew nothing of the problem. It is up to them to behave with civility and maturity. The girl has written a book. The girl is Ann Landers.
