As Boy Friend Is So Will Be Husband A young reader .suggests: "You write fine articles for people who are already married. But my friends and I wish you would writ* more who are dating and thinking about marriage, "One article wa would like to have you wrlta Kuth Mlllett would tell a girl who is going steady with a young man now she should expect him to treat her. "Should she overlook being stood up for a date occasionally if he always has nn. excuse and is 'oh so sorry?' Or would a man who would stand a girl up for a date make a poor husband?" Different girls expect different things of the men they date. But a SB/:? rule (or any girl is wondering if a young man would make a good husband is this: He won't be any more considerate as a husband than he was as a steady date. So the chances are that the man who doesn't bother to telephone when he has to break a date will turn into the kind of husband who may or may not get home for dinner. It will depend on whether or not there happens to be something: else he would rather do. For that reason a girl Is foolish to put up with inconsidrate treatment from a young man. She might as well let him know from the start that she doesn't want any man taking up her time if he doesn't care enough about her to treat her with common courtesy, Even if a girl loses a young man by demanding that he treat her courteously, she retains her self* /espect. Ana when she loses an inconsiderate, selfish young man aht msn't lost anything of value.
