ALSO METRO NEWS A very indignant woman office worker wrote me to say: "Recently a new employe in our office said that she intended to marry Mr. W., a married man. who also works in our office. "Sure enough, he proceeded to get a divorce and they were mur- rled. prefer for** reason for this cold-blooaed breaking up of a marriage (Mr. W. is actually no prize) she said that all the boys she knew in school were cither already married nr were overseas nnd she wasn't going to end up by being a pitied old maid. "Isn't it about time for us so- called moderns to stop and think how damaging our superior attitude Is toward unmarried women? " Yes, it Is. There Is something wrong with our attitude when a girl Just out of school feels that a Mille " home wrecker is more acceptable! In our society than a woman who ; never marries. j And yet you see it all the time, j A woman will deliberately break up a marriage. Momentarily the wife may be pitied, the husband regarded as a heel, and the girl considered nothing but a home wrecker. But what's the picture a year later? The discarded wife Is Just another lone woman no one wants to bother with. Some people are even saying that it was probably her own fault that she couldn't hold her husband. Others are suggesting: that if the , marriage had been happy there wouldn't have been another woman. And what nbout the Husband and his new wife? They are accepted and welcomed everywhere. That is a sad but true picture of our modern attitude. So no wonder the girl who is determined to get a husband, even if she has to get another woman's husband, doesn't hesitate to try to break up a marriage.
