It's been three years since "Mona" died. "Frank" became extremely attached to his wife's parents following her death. They were not pleased when he married me. Now, the greatest obstacle to our happiness is Frank's continued closeness to Mona's family. Yesterday we received an invitation to his former father-in-law's birthday party. Only 50 people were invited — all relatives. When I asked Frank if he planned to go, he replied, "I wouldn't miss it." I feel hurt. It seems to me that Frank should not attend this "family reunion." He needs to let go of his past so we can build a life together. The party will only remind him of his loss, with everyone sympathizing with him instead of rejoicing over his marriage to me. Should I insist that Frank not go? Should I go with him? I need your guidance because I'm too upset to think straight. — Playing Second Fiddle to a Ghost in California Dear California: You are treading on dangerous ground when you try to discourage Frank from honoring Mona's memory in Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 whatever way he chooses. Cut it out. You and Frank should go to the party together. Be cordial and friendly, and make Frank proud of you. This will be an enormous challenge, but you can meet it with dignity and grace if you make the effort. Dear Ann Landers: I have been married for 43 years and have four children. I hope you can save my marriage. I love my wife very much, but I'm about ready to give up. She is forever nagging me about something — my shoes need shining, my tie is wrong, my socks don't match, my hair is too long (or too short), I slurp my soup, I'm driving I too fast or too slow, I need to lose weight, I laugh too loud. There's no end to it. She nags me constantly and does the same to our children. I'm sure that's why two of the kids ran off and got married. Not long ago, I had a heart attack, and my wife really helped in my recovery. If not for her nagging, Ann, she'd be the perfect wife. I'm sure there are other husbands who have written about the same problem. What do you tell them? — Pittsburgh Dear Pitts: I tell them to put on an invisible vinyl raincoat and let it all slide off. Chronic naggers will not change. Almost always, the nagging has less to do with the inadequacies of others than discontentment with themselves. Once this is understood, life becomes a lot more pleasant. Try it. You'll like it. Dear Ann Landers: A friend of mine who is considered a pretty dim bulb (she ends almost every sentence with "you know") can sit down and work out a crossword puzzle in nothing flat. How come? — Baffled in Buffalo Dear Baff: Practice makes for proficiency. Crosswords are games, and people who work at them learn the tricks of the trade. It's as simple as that. What's /our sign? Astrological horoscope* are for entertainment purposes only. birthday Wednesday, June 30,1993 Ventures or endeavors you personally create or direct have very good chances for success in the year ahead. There is a possibility you might become involved in several simultaneously. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Persons who are performing work or service for you today must measure up to your standards and requirements, and not to theirs. You're the guy/gal who is paying the bill. Cancer, treat yourself to a birthday gift. Send for your Astro-Graph predictions for the year ahead by mailing $1.25 and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope to Astro- Graph, c/o this newspaper, P.O. Box 4465, New York, N.Y. 10163. Be sure to state your zodiac sign. LEO (July '23-Aug. 22) Titans will be enough for you to do today just taking care of your own affairs without trying to manage things for others. Operate within your limita- tions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Both you and your mate are apt to have very definite ideas of how you'll want certain things done today. Unfortunately, your concepts might conflict. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) This might not be one of your more productive days and it may be even less so if you have to take care of tasks or assignments you think of distasteful. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you cater to your impulsive whims today you could be very extravagant and wasteful. Keep in mind that what you think you now need does not have to be instantly gratified. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If anyone is able to perceive the other fellow's point of view it is usually you. Today, however, you might be so focused on your own interest you'll not be cognizant of the requirements of others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Harboring grudges could produce all sorts of avoidable complications today, so turn the other cheek and let bygones be bygones, and begin anew. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Today you might get involved once again with someone you like but with whom collectively things never work out too well for either of you financially. He wary. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) There is a fine line today between being properly assertive or unnecessarily aggressive. It might be hard for you to distinguish where one ends and the other begins. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Persons who are usually helpful to you might not be around when you need them the most today. Rely upon yourself and not upon assistance that may not be forthcoming. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Complications could occur today if you become too involved in a friend's confidential affairs or if he/she begins to probe into yours. Each should keep the other at arm's length. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Guard against •inclinations towards being too self-serving today. You might accomplish that what you set out to do, but you could lose an ally you'll be needing a bit down the line.
