Mrs. Rupert Craltou said today that the part would start at 7:30 p.m. and that tickets could be obtained from any Sbriner, his wife or at the door. The wives will alignment funds by selling refreshments during the evening. Writes a disgusted wife: "My husband's iden of how to act at a party is lo go around playfully pulling hLs arms around the other girls, calling them pet names, etc. If I protest when we get home he says I'm jealous. "Believe me, I'm not the least bit jealous wh;n he acts that way. I'm just ashamed for us both, because he makes u s both look absurd — himself for carrying on like that and me for putting up with it." That, I think, is a lalrly typical reaction for a woman married to a man who thinks he Is irresistble to women and Is forever making a pass at some other woman in front of his wife. Yet. I'll bet there isn't a married wolf living who w'ould concede that his wife's objections to his amorous attentions to other women might spring from shame, rather than jealousy. So I don't see much hope for his wife 'being able to make her husband understand how she really feels. Jealousy Ts So Comforting He'll mark her attitude- up 10 jealousy, because that is flattering to his ego. And it would be awfully deflating to admit to himself that she Li really ashamed for him and for herself. Nor is their much chance that time will change him. Men of that type just seem to get worse and worse a.s time goes and and they need more and more to assure themselves that they arc irrestst- able to wofncn. It's just a question of whether his wife loves him enough to put up with him as is or whether she doesn't. Only the wife herself can answer that question. But if any playboy husband happens to read this olutnn I've one word of warning for him. Don't expect your wife to go on loving you indefinitely if y*ou continue to mako her feel ashamed of herself and of you. Some day the shame will be deeper than the love.
