Wife's selling job's got him shopping By Abigail Van Buren [c W1 by Chicito Tribiin»-N. Y. News Srqd., Inc.l '' DEAR ABBY: I am a man, 64 years old. I retired two years ago and I am very lonely. You see, my wife, who is 60. took a job selling in a retail store some years back because she wanted to do something more exciting than just housework. Her selling job paid poorly, but she never quit because she says she enjoys selling. Her boss is about 50, and she eats up his flattery. She enjoys the attention of any man who is younger than I am. I had hoped that after my retirement my wife and I could travel and live out our golden years in pleasure and relaxation, but she refuses to quit her job. She has no appreciation for the security I have worked all my life to provide for her. Should I dissolve our marriage now and try to find some lady who would be happy to give up her job to travel and enjoy retirement with me? LONELY IN K. C. DEAR LONELY: Perhaps if you put it to your wife just that way. your problem would be solved. She's a foolish woman to spend her days "selling" while you are free to spend your days "shopping." DEAR ABBY: My husband is of Italian descent and he has a friend who is also Italian. His name is Dino.'When Dino comes over, which is quite often lately, the two of them greet each other with a warm embrace, and they kiss like adman i< would kiss a woman. My husband tells me that this is an old Italian custom as the Italians are very affectionate people. I am not Italian, but I have known a lot of Italians and I have never seen this done by two men. My husband and I are both middle-age and have been married less than two years, and he shows more enthusiasm when he kisses Dino than when he kisses me Should J Worry ° RHODE ISLAND READER DEAR READER: Affectionate men of ail nationalities will sometimes greet each other with a firm embrace. But kissing "like a man would kiss a woman" is something else Worrying won't help. Ask your husband to state nig preference. DEAR ABBY: A young woman I've been dating for several months has just informed me that nothing is going to come of our little romance. That doesn't bother me nearly as much as her reason. She said-now get this. "You are too nice a guy." Abby, why is it that today's women want a man who treats them rough? Must a man slan a woman around to prove that he is a man? I certainly hope not because I never could mistreat a woman, and I doubt if I will ever change. Please don't get the idea that I am some poor slob who has trouble getting dates because I'm not. Who said, "Nice guys finish last"? He sure knew what he was talking about. T00 NICE DEAR TOO: Leo Durocher said it. But don't you believe t. [Leo is far froth "finished" himself, 8 o how would he know?] DEAR AfiBY: They have something new now. Instead of throwing rice at newlyweds as they leave the church they throw tiny tissue paper hearts. These "hearts" come in a variety of colors and are about the size of a quarter [I am enclosing one.] They cling to the trees, and they litter the church property until somebody cleans them up Rice was so much cleaner, could be enjoyed by the birds and what was left dissolved easily. But those little tissue paper hearts create such a terrible mess-just like confetti! Maybe if you will print this, it will help.
