Her sex life not his 'affair' By Abigail Van Buren te 1»71 by Chicifo Tribune.N. Y. Nun Sift., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: I have a very intelligent friend whose company I enjoy a lot until he starts asking personal questions which make me very uncomfortable. For instance, he wants to know how I feel about sex. Then he asks about my dreams, my earlier years, and other highly personal things which always end up"with sex. Abby, I want to be perfectly truthful in all discussions, but I think some of the things he asks are none of his business. What should I do? I hate to tell him off and lose his friendship. I know you are supposed to like people in spite of their faults. Can you give a confused young lady some hints on proper conduct in this situation? I am unmarried and so is he - JOAN OF ARC DEAR JOAN: Tell him that you prefer to keep your "ideas" about some subjects strictly personal, and sex is one of them. His questions sound to me like a prelude to other intimacies. Keep him in his place and don't be drawn into discussions which make you uneasy. And if you lose him, you lose him. The woodwork is full of men like him. DEAR ABBY: My husband of nearly one year will not go visiting w:lh me to see my family, and particularly my parents. He has no objections to my going, but he would rather go fishing or sit home alone than go with me. He refuses to go to church with me and has recently stated that he will not attend my sister's wedding. Why should a man who used to court me from my parents' home and used to attend church regularly suddenly decide he doesn't want to sec my family anymore and church is out? He loathes wearing a tie. I am going to have a baby next month and he has just told me he will not attend the christening. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. BAFFLED DEAR BAFFLED: If your husband changed "suddenly"—something could be physically or mentally wrong with him. He'll need a doctor to determine that. If he has simply decided that now that he has you, he doesn't have to put up with anything that displeases him, he is behaving like a spoiled little boy. If you can't get him to listen to some fair counseling, you will either have to get rid of him or get used to him. DEAR ABBY: About three years ago I was in such a serious mental state that I was guilty of actually inflicting physical abuse on my helpless child. This would occur only when I was terribly depressed, but these depressions were becoming more and more frequent. Many would have said, "Put her in prison and take her child away from her." Fortunately I must have seen a ray of light, as I ...telephoned cur Community Mental Health Service. Instead of ^condemning me, they said, "Come let,us help you." It has taken three years of treatment for me to reach this point, and I have more ahead of me yet, but I have come a long, long way. To your readers who are experiencing the same or similar problems, I say, seek help now. Don't be disheartened by the slowness of your recovery, since it probably took more than just a few months to acquire the problems which are surfacing now. Stay with the treatment in seach of mental health as I did, and you, too, will enjoy being a mother. HAPPY IN SEATTLE DEAR HAPPY: Unfortunately you will never know how many have been helped by your letter. Thank you for writing.
