News Synd., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: I know that according to the book of etiquet the man is supposed to treat the girl to dinners, movies and in fact — everything. 1 say these rules were made before women went to work and earned money. Now that times have changed, the rules should be changed. 'Why should a working woman bank her whole paycheck while the man pays for everything? I once said to a girl who earned more than I did, "I have treated you quite a bit, when are you going to take ME out to dinner?" And her answer was, "You must be nuts or something." What do you think? ON THE LEVEL DEAR ON: I think you have a point. A working woman should occasionally "treat" a man who has entertained her. She could suggest a picnic and provide the goodies. Or surprise him with tickets to some special entertain ment. Or invite him to dinner. Or knit him a sweater. And the wise ones do. BEAR ABBY: My parents were divorced when I was 5, and I lived with my mother until I-was married last year. I hadn't seen my father in 12 years, but I found out where he was living two months ago, so 1 called him and invited him and his wife to visit us. They stayed the weekend. Now they call almost every week and ask if they can come up. (We live in Long Beach and they live in San Diego.) We have a one-bedroom apartment, so my husband and I give them our bedroom and we sleep on the living room sofa. 1 put the cushions on the floor for my husband and I sleep on the frame of the sofa. My husband doesn't like this arrangement, but I'd feel just awful asking my dad and stepmother to sleep that way. Is my husband fair in asking that dad's visits be cut down? We have a lot of catching up to do. "CATCHING UP" DEAR "CATCHING:" You had better reshuffle your values. Your husband's comfort is more important than the comfort of a father who disappeared for the twelve most important years of your life, and a stepmother whom you owe nothing. If you want to "catch up," let them rent a motel for their visits, and you and your husband sleep in your bedroom where you belong. DEAR ABBY: The daughter of some friends of ours is having a church wedding. My sister attends the church where the wedding is to be held and she said the minister issued a blanket invitation from the pulpit "to all who cared to attend." Since I do not attend this church I don't feel that this is a proper invitation. My sister said the bride's family are too busy to call people and this is the way they are inviting folks. I just don't think I'd feel comfortable attending a wedding under those circumstances even though we have known the family for years. What do you think? "???" IN LAWSON, MO. DEAR "???:" If you want to attend and this is the only kind of invitation they are issuing, go. You'll be as welcome as every other guest. CONFIDENTIAL TO BILL, WHO LIKES A FEW: Stay off the sauce.
