ftM Ito - Blyttavfflt (Aric.) Cmf«r Ncwi - Monday, Jmuanr *> . by Abigail Van Buren •W/'fe, Hubby Feud Over Yiv/e G//fs -DEAR ABBY: It's Christmas morning in our household and my husband and 1 have ha'd-quitc a falling out. Before Christmas we agreed not to spelxl-'more than $15 on each other because we are on a budget. And that's all we could afford. Well, I ended up spending $21^ on him because I honest- U-: couldn't find anything I thought he'd like for less. But he bought me a $40 purse which 1 needed like I need another head. •Wiien 1 saw it, I was fur- i.QUS. and took it back. He was \;ery hurl and called me cruel and ungrateful. Do you think I was, Abby? I feel so Sad" about the whole thing. " ' CHRISTMAS RUINED -PEAR CHRISTMAS KG1NED: Since your bustard had already bought the gift, you should have accepted it graciously and kept quiet'. Then at a later date you could have reopened the issue; about setting a limit .on.. Christmas gifts and sacking with it. I think you owe you husband an apolo cclved with a four-cent itamp on the envelope. Your father used to say, 'If you can't do something right, forget it.' " Abby, my husband and I arc in the army and every penny counts, so 1 was very luirt by this kind of reaction. Do yoii suppose others also thought that we were cheap? Or is George's aunt wrong? HURT DEAR HURT: George's aunt is more than "wrong." She's unkind and small.

This look place New Year's eve, j but that's no excuse. | 1 got mad and ran. out to the car without my husband. He followed shortly, full of lame excuses. The next day I got several telephone calls about it. Everyone criticized ME for being "a" poor sport." Nobody said a word about the woman who grabbed my husband and put on an exhibition with him. Was I wrong to be provoked DEAR STILL: Look at It this way. Your husband was victimized by a gal who was full of the spirit of the occasion, and vice versa. 1 don't blame you for being provoked, but occasionally we all have to ignore things that provoke us. DSAR ABBY: I know that I :am: jealous to a fault, but how would YOU like it if just as-ryou were leaving a party an intoxicated woman grab- ISSH.'jjour husband and gave hinV'S long, hard kiss on the lips?. ..My husband made no DEAR ABBY: George and I sent out 203 Christmas cards early in December. We used I live-cent stamps on all the sealed envelopes as we had written personal notes on the cards inside. The cards with not writing on them were mailed in unsealed envelopes with four-cent stamps. Okay? We just received a letter f r o m George's aunt.
