"Am I being a snob In being afraid that my friends and office associates would think I had married beneath me? Should I marry him?" ' Isn't one., important question entirely overlooked in your letter? Do you love this man? If you love him enough to accept him "as is," without embarrassment before your friends and business associates, be thankful for his love and dependability. You wouldn't be doing him an Injustice to marry him. But don't marry him if you are ashamed of him. That could only end in bitterness for you both. Some women can marry a man with less education and be perfectly happy. But that would be a most difficult situation for a. woman overly concerned with wiint "they say." Only your own heart can tell you whether or not you could make this man a good wife. A wife who would never be ashamed of him because of the educational and social opportunities he has missed.
