Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Friday. December 39, 19M- Pan wiiiniiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiin No Pay for Marriage V an. Juren loc.i, llllllll!ll!l!lllllll!ll«lllll!llllllllllinilllllllll!llllllll!llllll!l!im DEAR ABBY: My daughter married an older man- much older than herself. Recently they had a few quarrels, and she must have said something to him about leaving huii, because he showed her a piece of paper which she signed the day before the marriage.'It said if they ever got divorced, she couldn't claim any part of his estate, and he wouldn't have to support her, but he would support any children they might have. (No chance.) Abby, my daughter tells me she signed the paper in all the excitement of getting married without knowing what she was signing. What is she supposed to do if she with him? Pick up and leave without getting a dime for the time he put in with this old guy? WORRIED MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Your daughter should ask a lawyer what her legal rights are. If she marled "this old guy" for the right re a sons, she wouldn't expect to be paid for 'the time she put in' with him. The old boy sounds pretty smart. He'll feed a horse as long as it's in his own table. DEAR ABBY: I've been married for 8 years. We have three small children, and my wife is a fairly good housekeeper except that she insists on putting the garbage in with the trash. I have tried to explain to her that it is not only very unsanitary, but it is also illegal where we live. It's like talking to the wall. I can't afford a garbage disposal and I don't want to hit her as I'm sure she'd have me arrested. What can I do? ITCHY DEAR ITCHY: First try the 'let's do it together" method of teaching, as you would with a child. If she doesn't catch on, prepare to take over the K.P. duty at your house. I don't know the penalty for combining trash with garbage, but it can't be as severe as wife beating DEAR ABBY: I used to ride to work with a man but now I take the bus because I don't want to get killed. He's about 70, and I think he needs eye glasses. He squints in order to see what's right in front of him. He can't even see the stop signs. We would have been in a couple of bad accidents if I hadn't yelled for him to stop. The last time I got out and took a bus the rest of the way. How he gets his driver's license renewed is a mystery to me. He really is a menace on the street. Should I report him to the motor vehicle department or to the local police? CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: It would be a public service to sugest to the police that licensing authorities check the man's eyesight. CONFIDENTIAL TO ANDY: Good manners are simply a sensitivity to the feelings of others. If you have that sensitivity, you have good manners, no matter which fork you use.
