Plume 2071 . all marriages go Ihrough periods of depression? The wife whose letter brings up that question writes me that she and her husband just aren't very happy any more. She has the feeling they arc growing apart. Their marriage doesn't seem to offer either one of them very much but work mid. worry. "It wasn't always this way," she And If she Is a wise wife, it won't always be that way, either. •All marriages may nol have their low periods—but probably most of them do. It Is too much to expect'a mnr- tage to stay the same, year in and year out. The wise wife Isn't dismayed when id- marriage seems to be less happy end rewarding than It once was or when she realizes that work and v.orry and the demands of Itvlnp seem to be pushing husband and wife a little apart. When those times come in. a mar- lane the wise wife doesn't dram- t«e her unhappiness or accuse her lusband of having changed In his eelings toward her. She goes right on about her job as homemaker wife and mother, trying to create •»» much happiness and galty for he whole family as she can. 'Mustn't Overdue H She doesn't wear a long face or idiilge in self-pity or drive 'her lusband even further away by be- oming critical of him or of his be- isvior. She makes herself stay cheerful ind to the best of her ability makes home as pleasant for him as nos- ible. For she knows that If she doesn't So anything to make matters worse ..ut calmly goes about living her life .s happily as she can, the period of depression will pass. She tries to make herself as happy s possible by doing things Hint are nteresting and stimulating to her - that she will avoid getting to feel' e a martyr to an unsatisfactori larriage. For it is an odd fact that In order o have a happy marriage It is far more Important for the 'wife to lake herself happy than to strive o make her husband happy. If she s happy—or at least content—her appiness will be catching, But no natter hoiv hard a woman tries, she an't make a man happy just by trlvlng to please him.
