The young couple sitting directly in front of us did everything except kiss each other in fond embrace. Clearly, they were having a date, and it made no difference that they were in Church, surrounded by serious-minded adults who had "come to hear the church service. My husband could feel my seething just by looking at me, and my daughter implored me with her eyes not to say or do anything, so I chickened out and, said I would write to you. What would you have done! CHICKEN DEAR CHICKEN: I would have prayed to the Lord, to send those ill-behaved voting people some much needed manner*, judgment, and self-control. DEAR ABBY: .At the end of your column it says, "Troubled? Write to Abby." Well, I am just troubled enough to write to you about this problem, which irks me no end: when I invited friends to dinner, some will say, "Don't go to any trouble." Exactly, what do they mean by this? Do they wish me to serve tnem TV dinners in their original containers? Or do they expect me to take them to a restaurant? Those are the only two ways I can think of to entertain guests without "going to any trouble." I am a good cook, and my friends know it, so they should realize that I most certainly shall go to considerable trouble in preparing a company meal. And the next person who tells me not to"go to any trouble" will not be invited again! TROUBLED DEAR TROUBLED: You appear to be all steamed up over a colloquial expression. Your gueitt were trying to tell you not to "knock yourself o-»t," another expression I am sure you understand, but would not be expected to take literally. DEAR ABBY: Please, please print this letter. It might make a few girls think twice before begging for a wedding ring. •:••-. ' _ .,-;.".• I fell in love with Mark when I was 15. He was 17.1 fought with my family because I wanted to quit school and get married. Mark wanted to go to college, but I talked him into taking a job in a parking lot so we could get married right away. We ran off and got married and broke our. parents' hearts. I got pregnant real quick so our parents) wouldn't have our marriage annulled. Well, Mark wasn't really ready to settle down so when he d spend an evening with his buddies, I'd get mad and "jealous. Then we started fussing at each other. He couldn't stand my whining so he left me. Now we're getting a divorce because he says he missed out on his youth and it's my fault. I still love him, but his love for me has turned to hate. Please, Abby, keep telling young girls to finish high school and let the guys grow up before they start nagging for marriage. I am 16 years old, pregnant, and in six months I'll be a divorcee. Sign this . . .-" - MADE A MISTAKE CONFIDENTIAL TO "DOWrX BUT NOT* OUT*' IN SEATTLE: Good for you! Keep plugging. No man is ever a failure until his wife thinks so. How has the world been treating you! Unload your problems on Dear Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069.
