As for her husband's feelings, Dana says: "He's crazy about me because he a/ways liked married women, lef s face it, if we got a divorce we'd be throughr -. ' Here then is Dana about her husband and other dilemmas: - I have a lot of trouble getting my husband to buy clothes. His idea of a dinner jacket is carrying sandwiches in his pocket. '··', . . · .

He was cheap, but now if s worse. His idea of a really terrific evening is to drive to the site of an earthquake for free doughnuts and coffee. . ' ' : : ' . ' * : ' ··'·· ' ' ' .

He said: "I had to call the doctor, didn't I?" · - , .'.'·· ' · - · "' : · -. ...*~ ' · ' · ' · ' · " ' " · ' ' There are certain pressures on me to have a child.
