This question cVincs to my -attention frequently. In such a situation most women it-act in one or two ways. Either they try to go along with Ihcir husbands li. all things nnd accept the husband's altitudes as Ihelr own. Or they Insist on beln(! Ihelr own sociable selves and nuiko an effort to hang onto the friendships that are Important, to thorn nnd lo keep up wilh Ihe activities then enjoy. The second way Is by fur the best way, And it can be done without any disloyalty lo Iho husband. Here Is how Alice B. worked ou! Unit, very problem. Her Intsbant Jim b completely absorbed In his job, He has a few good friends, bu 1 thinks most of the people Alice en- Joys lire a wnslc of lime.

Furthermore, by Inslsllng on beinq herself she has remalndccl the kind of woman Jim wauled to marry. All In all, Alice and Jim have a elu-r niMTlago nnd both are far hajmici than Bess and Bill.
