-AM Thoughts on getting friend's wife pregnant By Abigail Van Buren [O 1J7J by CMCMO TrfbVM-N. Y. Niwt int., Inc.] • DEAR ABBY: I hasten to advise you apparently I did 1 not make myself clear when I wrote it was all right for a | man to try to get his friend's wife pregnant, if his friend ' had tried and failed. I cited a Hindu religious book [The •• Vedas] as proof, but I did not mean to say it is all right in this age. In these modern times it is better to get artificial insemination under the care of a registered doctor. Years ago no such thing was heard of, hence the advice in The Vedas. Nobody has ever done such a thing in India today, and personally, I would not go near it. PREM AGARWAL DEAR PREM: Thank you for clarifying your statement. I heard from many readers who took issue with It. DEAR ABBY: My daughter [Sally] is 21 and has been married a year to Paul, a divorced man who has a 5-year- ojld son. The boy lives with his mother, but she sends him to Paul's whenever she wants to get rid of him, which is nearly every weekend. At Christmas Paul said he and Sally were to go to his ex's house to watch Junior open his presents. Then the "ex" and Junior would be coming back to Paul's house, so the child could have another Christmas party in his daddy's house. My daughter refused to go along with these plans and I agreed with her. Paul went alone, and brought Junior back, alone. My daughter gets along fine with Paul, except where . Junior is concerned. I believe where there is a divorce and a child, the . parents should do what they can for the child, but leave the ; other spouses out of it. What is your opinion? SALLY'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: I think there should be a special place In heaven for any woman who marries a divorced man with a first family, because as far as the man is concerned [whether from guilt or whatever] his "first" family usually comes first. And the same holds true for a divorced woman with a first family. DEAR ABBY: I just read your letter about the 'woman with two young boys. She said she regretted having the second one. I went thru the same thing. " My oldest is 5 years old and the baby is 15 months old: The older boy was a model child. The baby was a headache jErom the word go. He cried constantly. He never slept unless I walked him, and to top it off he was built like a Sherman tank and I'm only l(»j^unj^. 3 AbJ^ given him away by 3 every morning if I could have, and I . jiated myself for feeling that way? ' '-^.*fV I talked it over with my doctor and he' told me many mothers have a child like that. So tell that poor woman she is not alone, but to wait until the baby is old enough to run around, amuse himself, eat with the family and play with His brother, and he will settle down. Mine is still a lot of trouble, but he's improved tremendously and now I love him to pieces. MANTUA [OHIO] MAMMA . DEAR ABBY: "Happy in San Angelo" praised her psychiatrist for curing her of a depression with hormones. A psychiatrist who even considers a physical cause for an emotional problem instead of blaming it on "mother" is a rare bird apparently found only in Texas. Too bad more of the same aren't around. AMAZED IN MINNEAPOLIS DEAR ABBY; Please don't send a compulsive eater to her local Mental Health Society. Send her to a doctor who is qualified in diagnosing Hypo-glycemia. "Mrs. Lazy," who was fat and miserable has every symptom of hypo-glycemia, a condition which can be corrected by the proper diet. And it won't run into a lot of money, either. AN INTERESTED M. D. CONFIDENTIAL TO "IN TROUBLE AND ASHAMED" IN SAN FRANCISCO: If you're too ashamed to contact your parents directly, get in touch with their attorney, clergyman, family doctor or a relative or close friend. But let your parents know where you are. I promise you, you'll sleep better tonight. And so will they.
