Dear Carolyn: I'm 27, my hus-baijd is 25 and we've been married for three topsy-turvy years. We spend most, if not all, of our time together. But when I want to do things by myself, he accuses me of not loving him the way he loves me'.;He says he has to fight for time with me. " I've often wondered if I was doing something wrong, so I've suggested we go to a marriage counselor. He adamantly refuses to go because he feels we should be-able to work this out. I'm beginning to feel like I'm suffocating. Helpless The only way the two of you are going to work this out on your own is if your immature and insecure husband admits he's immature and insecure. Which will take a mature and secure person to admit. But don't give up or blame yourself; just start raising that big baby you married. Parents need to teach kids to be loving yet independent, right? So do the same for your bitter half. To teach him the independence part (and to prevent yourself from dyeing your hair blue and running off with the plumber), insist on some freedom. Your efforts will be provocative, so start small say, with a few hours to yourself to read a book, or see a friend, or drive in circles till your time's up. Then come home happy to ' see him, and do something special together. 1 ; When he starts whining, re : I k r ' ' ;'t EAT ALONE Deluxe Double Clean Process: We recommend our deluxe steam process for deeply soiled carpeting.

Would it be out of the question to move to a state such as Florida and try to find myself or start over? Washington Your friends are right. After a few years, your lust for adventure will erode into a quiet desperation and you'll immerse yourself willingly eagerly! in work, family and financial responsibilities just to remind yourself how mature you were for making The Right Decisions.
