ecurfcr Newt — Friday, Anuny If, UK She's Single at 57, Likes It That Way DEAR ABBY: Where does tveryone get the silly Idea that if a woman isn't map ried she is a lonely, miserable icx-slarved creature? I am 57 years old, could easily pass for 45, and I don'l know a married woman I'd Irade places with. I have four boy friends going at once have a good • paying position, a home o[ my own, trade •my car every other year, and I can do wliat I please with my own money. I don't have to eat my heart out over a cheating husband, a n d I wouldn't have one around again on a full time basis for anything in the world I am single by choice after having been married long enough to know what it's like I like it better this way BORN FREE DEAR BORN: 111 bet your boy friends like it better, too. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 26 years. During this time my mother has stolen several petty items from my home. They have not a- mdunled to very much — certainly not enough to make a fuss about, but it has been very difficult for me to remain silent when I se« them in her home The latest item, however, is a dinner ring my husband gave me for my 25th wedding anniversary. If I still had il I would wear it only on special occasions, but my mother never takes it off her finger. Every time I see her wearing my ring it makes me ick and nervous How can she be so heartless? My husband says that I am 'nuts" — that I should ask my mother for my ring, but 1 just cannot bring myself to 'ay the words. Can you tell me what to do? I Tiate scenes and trouble. HEARTSICK DEAR HEARTSICK: My dear lady, your mother cannot possibly be of sound mind lo ilcal a ring from you and wear it constantly la your presence. If you don't get your mother to a doctor and Investigate her mental condition, your husband will have just cause to be concerned about your own. DEAR ABBY: You recently had a letter in your column from a service man who complained because he didn't get any mail. One very important question: Did he WRITE to anybody? My own case: My boy friend (fiance) called me collect last MAY from Massachusetts, where he was in an army school. He said lie was being shipped out the following day and would write to me as soon as he had an address where I could write lo him. In JUNE he sent me a postcard from Athens, Greece. He said he was having a "great" lime and was on his way to Ethiopia. (Still no address where I could write to him) In AUGUST he wrote from Ethiopia saying he had been there for two months and it wasn't bad at all. This time he included an address, so I answered his letter right away and I haven't heard from him since. He complained in his letter that nobody had written to him (I wonder where he expected them to address their letters?) He Isn't In • war zone, and he it not suffering any hardships because he writes that he is living in a bungalow and is teaching at the university at night. What do you think of this? DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: I think your fiance is lazy, inconsiderate, and something less than gung ho about you. And unless he can explain .his long silences, shower, him with indilfer- How has the world been treating you?
