Wife's nest egg may prevent a goose egg By Abigail Van Buren e ItW W CMU* THlMfrN. Y. NMM tut*., lit. DEAR ABBY: I am an experienced secretary and bookkeeper who quit work to have a family. My children are in school all day now and I want to get a part-time Job. My husband says If I want to work outside the home I should work for him. [He owns a small retail business.] I don't want to work for him because he refuses to pay me. He says: "You don't need any money of your own. If you want something, ask me and I'll give you the money for it." [In the past when I've asked for money he has had to know where every dime is going.] He enjoys having me ask him for money. It makes him feel important. I don't see anything wrong with a wife having a little nest egg, do you? J. IN MASS. DEAR J.: No. And sometimes it's the wife's nest egg that balls her husband out when there's a goose egg In Ms bank account! DEAR ABBY: How much time should a wife give her husband to'make up his mind between her and the other woman? After 18 years of marriage and four beautiful children, my husband became involved with a divorcee I'll call Anna. After he told me about her, I tried for three months to correct the things about me that made him stray in the first place. Finally, I couldn't stand his running back and forth between me and Anna, so I told him to move out until he decided which one he wanted. He went to stay with a buddy but he comes home a couple times a week. [Anna works days, and he works nights.] When he's home I do his laundry and we share the same bed. Everything is just wonderful—just like old times. I try to be the ideal wife, hoping he will realize what he's missing and decide to come home for good. He keeps telling me he still loves me but he can't give up Anna. I told him he can't come home to live until he quits seeing Anna altogether. Abby, lately I'm losing respect for myself. I feel like I'm being used. Am I going about this wrong? Please advise me. CONFUSED DEAR CONFUSED: You did everything right up to the point where you let Mm come home to use you as a part- time wife and a full time laundry service. DEAR ABBY: I went with a beautiful 22 -year-old girl for eight months. [I'm 28.] She came on like a lily white touch- me-not virgin. She even slapped my face once, when I let my hands get too familiar with her. I never came right out and asked her if she was a virgin because from her actions I was sure she was. I was so glad she had "saved herself" for marriage because that was the one thing I wanted in a wife. Well, after we were married I found out that she lied to me. She refuses to talk about it, and I feel that I have been tricked. I think she withheld the truth from me because she knew I'd never marry her if I knew. I was really crazy about this girl, and she seemed to care for me, too, but now everything is ruined. • We aren't getting along at all, and it's all because she deceived me about her virginity. It's gotten to the point * where I feel divorce is the only answer. Please help me. CHEATED DEAR CHEATED: She didn't lie to you, you jumped to a conclusion. Too bad you place such a high priority on virginity because there is -no way she can get hers back. However, "never have loved before" isn't the most Important thing a woman can bring to a marriage. Her past is her business, and she owes you no explanations, so if you want to save your marriage, get some counseling.
