Mate's Actions , • Speak Louder Than Words Just because a man 'has never given his wife any real cause for complaint doesn't mean she can't find a reason for getting into a dither over whether or not he really loves her. Take this letter, for instance. A wife .writes: "I have a husband who really confuses me. He is always content when he is at home. He works six days a week and on Sunday he wants to play ball with the children or do anything else just so long as he can ( . stay at home. 'But he never tells me he loves me. He says, 'I told you I loved you when we were married. I meant it and I still do. I don't see why I have to go around preaching on the same subject nine years .traight.' "Does he really love me and the children — or not?" He may not talk as prettily as Charles Boyer, but he would rather be at home than any place 'in the world. He may not tell you every day that he loves you, but after nine years of marriage he still prefers your company to anyone else's. He may not pet and praise his children, but he gets out and plays ball with them on Sunday when many .fathers prefer to spend the afternoon on the golf course. So quit worrying: about whether or not your husband loves you. Actions speak louder than words. And judging from your husband's behavior he IE a man who not only loves his wife and children but also his home. It is a foolish fancy of the female heart that a man doesn't love a woman unless he is forever telling her so.
