V. Ntm til*., ttt.l DEAR ABBY: 1 am 58. My husband is 71 and retired. We have been married for 26 years. He has always been a kind and generous man, but Abby, I know that what t feel in my heart for him is'pity, gratitude, and habit—not true love. We have very little in common. 1 am a college graduate and former school teacher while he never went beyond fifth grade in grammar school. His only interests are home-cooked meals, sports, and shootem-up westerns on television' He is so childish and dull. Living with him underfoot all day is getting to be more than I can tolerate. We have no children who survived beyond infancy. I am lonely, bored, and frustrated. Would you advise divorce this late in life? He has money, and I know I could get a good settlement. No name or city, please. I'm sure he doesn't know what's in my mind. "MRS. X" DEAR MRS. X: After 26 years of marriage to this "kind and generous man" I think he is deserving of more loyalty and consideration than you exhibit. And what makes you, at 58, think all you have to do is divorce him and your life would be transformed into an exciting, gay, and fulfilling one? You supply the answers. But be honest with yourself, then act accordingly. DEAR ABBY: I would like your views on girls and women (over 40] who come to work in an office in mini and micro-mini skirts. Isn't there some booklet that describes appropriate dress for the office? Sign me ... HORRIFIED DEAR HORRIFIED: In the absence of house rules, common sense should prevail. Unfortunately common sense seems to be less and less common these days, in which case the office manager, boss or whoever is responsible for the morale, efficiency, and output of the establishment should post some clear-cut "thou shalts" and "thou shalt nets" with regard to attire. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were invited to the home of a friend for a small dinner party. When I received the invitation my hostess asked me expressly NOT to tell her sister-in-law that she was having a party because she hadn't invited her. Well, the morning after the party, this uninvited sister-in-law phoned me and asked, "What did you do last night?" What could I say? TRAPPED DEAR TRAPPED: You could have said, "It's a military secret—" and blown your friendship to smitherines. 'Or you - could have told her where you had been. When asked not to "tell" something, don't accept the burden of bearing the secret. Reply, instead, "I'll not volunteer the Information. Neither will I lie IfashedT" "- : """" CONFIDENTIAL TO ROZZIE: If you're looking for a man with money, marry a chiropodist. I understand they make money hand over foot. Problems? Write to Abby, Box 61700, Los Angeles, California. For a personal .reply, inclose a stamped, self- addressed envelope. FOR ABBY'S NEW BOOKLET "WHAT TEEN-AGERS .
