A/o Explanation Needed Here DEAR ABBY: Our daughter, who has not been married very long, has telephoned us to tell us that she is leaving her husband and is coming home. We can't understand what happened. She never indicated in any of her letters that her marriage wasn't going well. They seemed so in love and Well suited to each other, and they surely went together long enough. Our problem is what to tell people. , In case she changes her mind and goes back to him, we don't want a lot of talk needlessly. Should we give our friends and relatives a "hint" as to why she's coming home in case she decides to stay? What if her visit is prolonged? THE PARENTS DEAR PARENTS: Tell people she is coming home for a visit. (She it). If she decides to stay, let HER make the announcement. You owe no explanations to anyone. DEAR ABBY: As far as husbands go, mine is tops. They threw the pattern away after they made him. But he has one fault. He hits, kicks and bites me in his sleep. I carried a acar from one of his bites for two weeks. My friend says that maybe he wants to beat the daylights out of me during the daytime, but he waits for a dream to bring out his true feelings. Is this possible! BEATEN AND BITTEN : DEAR B AND B: Could be. But there is always a chance that he is not dreaming about you when he lashes out tooth and nail. In self defense you should have twin beds. DEAR ABBY: A friend of mine received an old beat up overstuffed chair from a friend of hers. The friend who received the chair was going to reupholster it. When she took it 'apart, she found several very old coins deep down in the cushion. Some of the coins were so old you wouldn't believe they •ever had coins way back in those days. They could be very valuable. Whose coins are they? They came with the chair. WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: The coins "accidentally" came with the chair. The receiver should notify the giver that the coins *•>• found in the chair. It is my view that the coins belong to the giver.
