TMt WOMEN B* KUTH MlLl.Cn NEA BUB WrtUr ftclh Millet* Memo to girls who are engaged' No amount, or advice you will ever get after marrige on how to make your marriage happy will do as much for your happiness as this warning:Be sure you have cho&eu Ihe right man. , Now, during your engagement ;>erlod, It the time to make sure you have chosen wisely. Sure, you're convinced you love him, or you wouldn't have promised to marry the mnn, but stop and ask yourself a few questions. What about his character? Is he a person you can absolutely count on—honest, dependable, willing to accept responsibility? Remember II sn't Just his personality you'll be living with. You'll be living with his character, and If that is weak your marriage can't be strong. .Must Respect You Ai An Individual Does he have any real respect for women? The man who hasn't any respect for a woman as an Individual never makes a good husband. He's the kind who figures that what the little woman doesn't know doesn't hurt her and If his wile is unhappy she 1 Just another "neurotic woman." v Does he want the same things out of life that you do? Noiv's the time to find that out. • Do you think he would make a good father? A man who isn't a good father Isn't a good husband either, for a woman can't be happy il she feels her children are being cheated out of the right sort ol home life. Is he as much In love with you as you are with him? It Is often ensy for a girl to get a man whose love doesn't] her own, but it Isn't so easy to hold him. So there are a fewl questions you should ask yourself j/bqut the man you are thinking of marrying. If you wait until after the marriage to be that realistic.
