Mom's family Doesn't Fit /n? BY ABIGAIL VAN BUKEN DEAR ABBY: Our son just came home from Viet Nam and announced his engagement to a girl he went with before he went away. She comes from high society people. Her mother asked me for a list of people on our side we wanted invited to the wdding. My problem is we have a lot of relatives we never see except at weddings and timerals and some of them wouldn't fit in very well with such high-class people. Also, this is going to be a dress-up type church wedding, and 1 hate lo put some of I hem on the spot to spend all that money getting dressed up just for that one day. Is there some way 1 can invite those who can afford it and will til in. and leave the others out? I hate to hurl any feelings. SAN ANTN100 DEAR SAN: Invite them all, and those who want to come *ill find ft way fo cut the Hiustard. Everyone has some relatives who won't fit ia", But don't worry* there will be pteflly on the other side who won't fit In either, and they'll fit nicely with your misfit*. DEAR ABBY: I am 11 years old and I am ashamed of my mother. She tells the biggest lies, and she gossips a lot on the telephone. She will talk to one lady and pretend lo be her best friend, when she is really her worst enemy. How can a I person be so two-faced and evil i and then tell me if f tell a lie 'God will punish me? CHARLOTTE. N.C. I DEAR CHARLOTTE: Do as your mother SAYS, not as she docs. Honey. Perhaps your mother will read this and realize that while "example" Is not the only teacher, it Is ode of the most powerful. DEAR ABBY: I have been lifcfct tt M ! bfldttfftttd am vety excited abwt il, but 1 arri also worried. You set, I want vefy fntfch fof fhy boy- ffieffd to be invited to this wedding, attd so far my girlfriend (the bride) hasn't said anything about il. The invitations haven't gofte out as yet so 1 don't know whether she plans to invite my boyfriend or not, but 1 am praying she is. j fs there some subtle way I lean find out? And if she isn't | planning on having my boyfriend, how can 1 get him invited without seeming bold? BRtDEsMAlD DBA tt BttibfcSMAIfc: A bHde asks ihef closest friends lo be her bridesmaids, and obviously you are ofle of hers, so come right out and tELL her that you hope she doesn't overlook your friend. DEAR ABBY: My husband was married briefly before he married me. 1 understand he was very much in love with his first wife who left him for another man. A year later we met and fell i in love. We married after a I short courtship and now we 1 have one child. I love him with 1 all my heart, and I know he • loves me, but he insists on doing ' something that is eating away at my heart. Whenever we meet new friends, he always finds a way I lo mention to them that he was married before. Why does he i do this? Is he proud of the } fact? It was such a short marriage, and they had no children. Altrusa Meet Attracts 19 !
