Q. 'We've got an unmarried daughter, 38, who still lives with us and toys around with her hobby of photography. She's shy, heavy-set, has never worked, and seems to have neither opportunities nor inclinations to marry. What can we do?" A. If she'were mine I'd insist that she got a job and move to an apartment where she can live- independently. Young people who are on their own and in jabs where they meet new peop- pie have better chancs of finding a mate and greater incentive to establish homes of their own than when comfortably •cloistered under the wings of their parents.
