Ann Landers Marriage of 30-Year-Old Son Should Please Mother DEAR-ANN LANDERS: I'm a 30-year-old bachelor with an excellent position. I want to marry and I have a delightful and gifted girl in mind. Here are my problems: I'm an only child and live in the large family home with my mother. Dad died two years ago and Mother has not left the house since that day. She will see no one but her physicians and her minister. The heart specialist says she has a serious cardiac condition and a sud- iden upset could 1 be fatal. I've [discussed my [wishes with the ninister and j the physicians I and they say [ my first oblijja- 1 tion is to my I mother. She n- Ann 1jt"*r i. fuses to discuss my leaving home or bringing a bride into the house. The girl I love will not wait forever. I'm a nervous wreck from the indecision. Can you help me? GERALD DEAR GERALD: If you robbed a bank and the shock killed your mother you'd have reason to feel guilty. The marriage of a 30-year-old son, however, should bring happiness to the heart of his mother. Children who try to disguise their lack of independence by calling it "devotion" and "unselfishness" fool no one but themselves. It all boils down to an inability to behave in an adult manner. Marry the girl and make a life for yourself — in a home of your own. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I didn't know a person must file income tax returns even though taxes are deducted every week from his pay check. I thought the withholding arrangement took care of everything. From 1951 through 1iW>0 I have not filed any returns Now I am frightened because I've been reading that a person must file every year. I realize that I've broken the law. Please tell me what to do. I don't want to be faced with a prison term. I'm really a law- abiding citizen and have never done a crooked thing in my life. DEEPLY DISTURBED PEAR DEEPLY: Phone the local Director of the Depait- ment of Internal Revenue and tell him youp plight. If your taxes did not exceed the amount withheld you rtun't have too much to worry about. If you owe the government money, you may be able l.v pay up and get off with an apology (plus penalties) provided you can persuade the head man that you were ignorant of the facts. The important thing is this: now that you know the facts, turn yourself in. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Maybe this problem is peanuts because it's not a matter of life and death, but a lot of high school kids would like to know the answer. When a guy takes a girl to a basketball game and his school is playin gagainst her school, which side should tlvy sit on? My girl says it's good manners for the boy to sit on the girl's side. I don't agree. How about it? PULLED APART DEAR PULLED: The boy provides the tickets and the girl should sit with her date, which means they both sit on his side. * * * • CONFIDENTIAL TO IN A SPOT: Yes, it is dangerous. It is also illegal. The answer is no. * * * • CONFIDENTIAL TO ASKING : It makes no sense to celebrate an anniversary which has been terminated by death. Spend the day with your mother but don't buy her a gift. * * .» * To learn the booby-traps of teenage drinking, write for ANN LANDERS' booklet. "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. © 1961, Field Enterprises. Inc.
