20, CLOVIS Tnp«.,Mftyll,lM8 DEAR ABBY Stealing Is Stealing DEAR ABBY: 1 am just an*very close and I've always told'taklng a bath or painting herilifc." Wheatland Pioneer Celebrates Birthday average housewife. My husband Works steady and we get along about ai,,Well as any other married ; eot$le. We have a fight about once a week. I run my house, raise my children and do not have an outside job, so I have to depend on my husband for every dollar I get. He is the stingiest man in creation. He thinks all the kids and I need are clothes on our backs, shoes on our feet and food on the table. He never gives me an extra penny. He IS my husband and he IS supposed to support me. Right? So where am I supposed to get money if not from him? Now for my problem: For years I have been taking loose change or a dollar or two out of his pants pocket while he's sleeping. I think I am entitled to it, so would you consider this "stealing"? FEELING GUILTY DEAR FEELING: Whether you are "entitled" to it or not, taking something without the owner's permission is "stealing" Every wife should get an allowance, no matter how small. But you have no more right to pick your husband's pockets than he has to pick your purse. DEAR ABBY: Everyone has her everything. 1 am 18 and a face on. Every time I sit down freshman in college, but you'd I sit on rollers or curlers. And think I was four years old the way my mother treats me. I know she means well, but I wish she would quit trying to "help" me with my love life. I had a little misunderstanding w i t h a young man who was getting interested in me and my mother called him up and tried to "straighten it out." I was so embarrassed I nearly died. He never called me after that and I don't blame him. Another time my mother called a young man's mother and told her that if her son would ask me to the Charity Ball she was sure I'd accept. Naturally, he never called. I know Mom loves me but she's doing more harm, than good. What does a girl do with a mother like that? MOTHER TROUBLE DEAR TROUBLE. Tell your mother more c m p hatlcally I can choke from the hair spray. How does a father manage to live through something like this? And if a father is lucky enough to get his daughter married off, I hear the girl's father has to put on the wedding. Aren't there any advantages to having girls? FATHER OF GIRLS DEAR FATHER: Yes. Someone once said, "A son is a son till he takes a wife. . , but a daughter's a daughter all her CONFIDENTIAL TO "LITTILE NELL'; "Morality Is moral only when It Is voluntary."
