The harder I ry. however, Ihe less my husband eems to appreciate It. What can I lo to please him?" I receive this sort of lament Irc- luuntly. The answer to It, I be- Icvc. resls In loo much individual emphasis on the term "perfect wife." Yet It's surprising how many women go inlo marritvRC with a preconceived Idea of what a perfect wife Is like. They work hard at the Job of being the "perfect wife" —and then often blame their husbands for not appreciating them. What they fail to see is that it's not a woman's duty to strive for perfection according to some notion of her own as to what perfection hi a wltc constitutes, but to- study her husband and try to be the kind of wile he wants and needs. Nor does It matter whether the wife impresses the world with what a good wife she Is. All she has to do is be a good wife to her husband. by Meeting to be Held By Clear Lake W.M.U.
