A young divorcee complains in her letter to this column that in the years since she received her divorce she has come to feel almost an ouUider in her town, where once she and her husband belonged to a group of friendly, sociable young couples. "It seems as though now that I'm a divorcee, all the wives are afraid of me." she says. They may be at that. But if they are there is a good chance that the divorcee, herself, is to blame. The young woman who suddenly finds herself without a man of her own sometimes starts acting very coy around other women's men. She is always asking their advice, or their help—or piling the admiration on a little uhick, telling them how lucky their wives are, how understanding the husbands are, etc. Most of the divorcees who antagonize wives by such coy behavior aren't bent on husband stealing. They are just trying to prove to themselves that they are still attractive to men. But that doesn't make any difference to the wives. They don't like it, anyhow. The way to put a stop to it is to forget to invite the divorcee to the next party, and then the next, and so on. The divorcee who wants to maintain her friendship has to bend over backwards to make it clear that it is the wives who are her special friends, not their husbands. She can do this by dressing con- servatively, paying more attention to the women than to the men, and by spending her flattery where it will do her some good—on the wives rather than on the husbands. Dinah Shore recently offered this advice to the feminine stars of television: "You have to be careful. Don't dress as if you were out to get some other woman's husband." That's a piece of advice any young divorcee might well tape onto her mirror, only it should be made to read, "Don't dress or act as if you were out to get some other woman's husband."
