Abigail Vao Bnren—— Should More Wives Copy Mistresses? DEAR ABBY: My husband and I recently returned from a week-end at a . well-known resort where we met another couple. (I'll call them Fred dy and Alice.) They posed as husband and wife, but we know for a fact that she is his mistress, not his wife. (Someone at the resort knows Fred dy's wife.) What people do is their own business, but I learned a lesson. I think I know why men enjoy mistresses so much. Alice was always well-groomed and beautifully attired. Her figure was trim and she always had a smile on h e r face. Never ones did she interrupt Freddy or disagree with him. She gave him all her atten tion, laughed at his jokes, and her company was consistently gay, pleasant and charming. I can assure you Freddy had the time of his life. Please print this. If more wives acted like Alice there would be fewer rnistresss. LEARNED A LESSON DEAR LEARNED: I dont know what Freddy's wife is like, bat maybe she could top -Alice if all she had to worry about was how she looked and how to be charming for a few hours (or days) at a time. I wonder how Alice would hold up with a steady routine of bat- tling bottles, babies and bud gets. And possibly knowing that her husband was week* ending with somebody else. DEAR ABBY: Like most people who read your column, it had never occurred to me to write. That is; until I read that letter in your column for the young Wife whose husband constantly corrected their two small sons (ages 2% and 5) at the dinner table until they left in tears. I have a message for that father: As an engineer by profession, I am inclined to perfectionism and intolerance of the faults of others. Fortunately, I am more tolerant today than I was when I was raising our first son. Looking back, I am and shall .forever be deeply ashamed of the way I hounded and belittled our son until his self - confidence and initiative were destroyed. This boy, of superior intelligence, became a high school drop-out, incorrigible, and a runaway. Now 21, he has no direction, a questionable fu- ure and has tried everything rom liquor to LSD. Except or an occasional letter or phone call every three months we never know where he is. We have five younger children who are fine'because by that time I had learned a little. However, that doesn't diminish the sin of my intol- rance. So please, Abby, tell this oung father to give his small on patience and affection be- ore it's too late.
