Wf, THE WOMEN HI KUTB NEA WrH*f If you love your wife enough to want to lc«ep her hippy remember these few Important fact*: With each ol her passing birthdays she needs your approval mor«. If the patslng yean bring » man success he receives more and mar* flattery and attention from women, but * woman always gets less «p^ less attention from other mental she grows older. It'» as Important to share your successes and triumphs with your wife as to seek comfort and reassurance when things go wrong. One reason so many wives feel "useless" In middle-life is because the husbands who went to them with their problems when the going was tough stop marriage as a .hinting of trt* real partnership once the hard days are over. Take pride In your wife's accomplishments and be sure that she knows you do. It's a wonderful thing to hear a husband brag about his wife—because they both look so happy when he does. Courtesy Appreciated More Than Von Realize Don't save your charming good manners for other women. Treat your wife with charming courtesy soo. No other woman will appreciate half as much. Remember there are three times when you should never criticize her: in [rent of your children, in front of your family, and when there is another .woman present. In all those instances the criticism Is bound to be humiliating. Remember, if you are ever tempted to play around, that what might seem like a meaningless though pleasant adventure to you might shatter all of your wife's security and take all the trust out of her love. ^ In short, treat your wi/e^W you would have her treat you.
