Answer: Chores may at times appear to be downright drudgery. But on other occasions, people are thankful that they can throw themselves into this routine work. The pure physical effort that such chores take often seem? relaxing after, say, a particularly trying day of making decls'ons or dealing with family problems. Physical work often helps ease the burden imposed by grief, anxiety or disappointment. Can a husband hate as well as Jove Ms wife? Answer: A husband often has ambivalent feelings toward his wife. Because of deep emotional problems, to may love and hate her at the same time. As a boy, be may have loved and feared his moUier, and may have grown UP wJUj the fear that be may lose her, In transferring this fear, he may unconsciously hate his wife because he feels that she will have less respect for him as a man, since she knows he is afraid of losing her. Are Illegitimate babies healthy? Answer; Illegitimate children suffer nvre serious health hand' leaps at birth than do children born of married mothers. There is a "higher rate of prematuj> ity among illegitimate children than among legitimate children," says "Medical Tribune," and the risk of death among newborn babies of unwed mothers is considerably higher. Unmarried mothers genera}y have less prenatal care poire complications than ried mothers. IMP, Kinf PMtuw, syufl., ine.)
