In or near every If you've ever suspected that you* may never get a chance to marry the man who U taking up all of your time this column Is for you. It's actually • for one particular girl—but there are undoubtedly many others In the same boat. • She has dated the same man for five years—and is no nearer marriage now than she was five years ago. She feels they have an "understanding" and that when he Is making more money, or when "conditions are favorable," he'll ask her to marry htm. She Is willing to make all sorts of excuses because she loves the man. and is reluctant to break off with a person in whom she has invested five of her best marrying years. Nevertheless she should either break off with him completely or make up her mind to use him as has been using her. for the companionship, fun and ego buildup that she can get out of the association. TIME TO MAKE A BREAK If she rioes the latter it should be only until she can bet back "Into circulation" Once there are other men calling her for dates, she shouldn't waste any more time on the young man who has let her waste five years on him. Allowed to run their course, such situations usually have a bitter end for the girl. One day the young man who shied away from marriage for so long with one girl meets another girl who wastes no time in announcing their engagement. But when a girl ouits being sentimental and starts being hardheaded, the story has a different end. The young man. realizing that the girl has waited as long as she Intends to wait, ''.ther decides to marry her or leaves her free to find someone else. Tf he genuinely loves the girl, he will choose the former course and ask her to marry him. At very least the girl's display of independence will give him cause to reflect No longer will he be able to take her for granted If he decides to step out of the picture, the bond between them is probably not strong enough to hold a marriage together, should it eventually occur. Either way, both will be better oil. at.hls homeyon Clear Mrs. Uttle accompanied h»n home 'Mrs. t; A.
