" irr---ifi-TTr-iirfir-irimir amii -r- By ERMA BOMBECK 'The divorce rate has. never ,been higher in this country. Experts put' the ' blame on.youth, feminine unrest and' the high cost of living. . jr. There is one theory that puts the blame on improper mating. Two people gre thrown together who are emotional ifiisfits. They have been devised a rat- ijig system." |For example, some husbands and fyives are docile, uncaring, stoic people. They don't care if their own dog bites them, the shower runs cold, the paper is late or their insurance expires. These are the unflappable No. 1's. No. l.'s should never sleep under the same electric blanket. They could burn themselves up and no one would know. Some husbands and wives are independently strong. Each does his or her own thing within their own domain. She cooks. He washes the car. She launders. He changes fuses. She has a daughter. He has a son. No. 2's are dull. ' · · . · · .' NO. 3's ARE aggressive personalities. They shout a lot and each feel he or she is the dominating influence in the family. They cannot hang wallpaper together, hang a picture, agree on the same'TV channel or set up housekeeping without a live-in marriage counselor. ·No. 4's are volcanic. They have .varicose veins in the neck from yelling. -They rarely listen, arid fight constantly over the children (each rejecting custody). . : , ' . - . . · " ' . ; The No. 5's are the worst kind for a marriage. They're quiet, moody, sullen. No one knows what they're thinking. (Or for that matter if they're breathing.) . . · ., NOW, THIS IS important. NO MARRIAGE COMBINATION SHOULD EXCEED 6. A 4 and a 1, maybe, or a 5 and a 1, but no more. . . . · ' I-once knew of a 3 who said to her husband, "I would marry Dean Martin in a minute if he asked me," and her husband (a No. 4) broke her nose, The worst case I ever knew was a 5 and a 2. They went camping together. He asked her if she would help him park the trailer. She said it was man's work. He didn't say anything. Finally, she stood-behind the trailer shouting, "Turn the wheels the other way." (She didn't say what the first way Was.) Then she would instruct, "You got this much more room." (Which meant nothing as she was behind the trailer.) Then she wo.uld shout, "Pull over there and back toward me," (Which also meant nothing). . Finally, the No. 5 ran over her foot and said, "I'm going out for a pack of cigarettes." He was never seen again. Remember, if-you can add, you can plan a happy marriage. ' Today's quiz is based on two hands played between France and The Aces in the 1974 World Championship. Two large swings are involved -- see if you can dp better than the champions: .
