Jenkins Phonel GY6-3816 It's foolish for a wife: To assume and try to prove that she has belter judgment than her husband. The man who is frequently forced to say ' "You were right, dear" soon changes it to "You were right—as usual." To assume that her husband is just a grouch if he doesn't enjoy entertaining or being entertained by the people the wife considers important. Maybe she ought to look around for a different group of friends. To low-rate her husband when she is talking to her women friends. All that gets her is their pity or contempt and no right-thinking woman wants either. To refuse to share her husband's outside interests. She'll find it is mighty lonesome when he stops asking her to go along. To try and change her husband by pointing out his faults to him. She'll have much better luck if she notices his good qualities and keeps quiet when she is tempted to say "It you only wouldn't . . ." or "If you only would ..." To assume that because he leaves home every day, his life isn't as filled with problems and frustrations as is her own. Wives who think they have the. Worst of it usually assume that their husbands lead exciting, interesting lives. To think that because he married her it is his duty to go on loving her. No man ever loved a woman from a sense of duty. To compare her husband unfavorably with the men she might have married. If she didn't pick the best of the lot that is her fault, not his. Wm. D.
