"I gave him the divorce and went | back to work. Now ( he tells me he made a mistake and wants to know if I will take him back if he gets a divorce from his second wife. I don't know what to do. I've never quit loving him but I don't Ruth Millet! know whether to believe him when he says he still loves me. "He has been in poor health for a year and I keep wondering if he just wants me back because he knows I will take good care of him.

Why throw away your independence and once again be at : the mercy of a man who Is as unstable as this one must be? Listen to your head this time — not to your heart.
