Success of Ten Produces Marital Headaches i Is it easier for a marriage to survive hard times than under the broad smHe of Lady Luck? _, Strange as it seems, a lot of couples who pull together as an unbeatable teeam When the going is rough st&rt pulling apart once they are on Easy Street. In explaining why she and her husband were separating, Mrs. Tita Purdom, wife of actor .Edmund Purdom, who became movie star overnight due to , a couple of lucky breaks, said: "We had four years of poverty and misery and we clung together like babes in „< the woods. But when Ed became successful it all changed." Ruth Milleti Success comes more slowly most places than it does in Hollywood. But even when it comes gradually, couples often lose the closeness they had when they were struggling together. Perhaps this wouldn't happen so often if, instead of straining to get io the top of the ladder without a backward glance, a couple would I pause along the way. They can ' look back over the distance they have come together and say to each other. "Together we have come this far — and together we can 8° even further." Unless they learn how to share small successes along the way, thev may not know how to share a big success if it should come along. So it is a wise young couple who stops now and then to take credit as a team for what they have accomplished. There is no reason why a couple who can pull together in bad times, can't learn to share success. Chocolate sut\da« and cilte wert served preceding the bridge games.
