AcU Let Husband Shoulder His Responsibility "I've noticed," remark«d »n observing wife, "that women who expect the most consideration from their husbenda not only get consideration, but seem to have more devoted mates than wives who baby their men." It Isn't so strange > that things work out that way. The Ruth Mllletl woman wno ex _ pects consideration trom her husband and never lets him forget that she needs his strength, makes him feel like a man and encourages him to act like one. The woman who spends her life catering to her husband and "sparing" him in every possible way while she shoulders many of the responsibilities that should be shared by both is treating her husband like a baby. He'll let her do it for it is pleasant to be spoiled. But he doesn't thank her for it. And it isn't his fault if in time he stops thinking of her as a woman who needs his help ,and strength and begins to think of her as par- fectly capable of getting along without any help from him. Living with a woman who expects little of him can't help but make him feel less like a .man. So no wonder he isn't the devoted husband he might have been if his wife had been a little less the "sturdy oak" and a little more the "clinging vine." So it is no favor that a wife does for her husband when she mothers him. The real favor a wife can do is to expect the most and the best from her husband so that h. develops his own strength. Remember these things whenever you are ' tempted to take on a responsibility that is rightfully your husband's or is a duty that should be shared "by both of you.
