The faster you go, the more chance there is of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere." - Charles F. Kettering. ORACI "NOBODY TELLS THE TRUTH about marriage • everybody lies about ^vhat goes on at home", said marriage counselor Lee Stiener on a television program I saw recently, Mrs, Stiener went on to say that romantic marriage is an illusion and there is no such thing as a perfect marriage so no matter how high a young couple's hopes, thilr marital life is going to end up pretty much like their parents I - o WELL, I WAS JUST A little sorry 1 tuned in that program. Here, I was all set to write a real hearts-and-flowers column for Valentine's Day, but if there isn't any romance in marriage, and married is the only way I've lived for more than half of my life, you can see I was licked before I even started. But 1 will grant that Mrs. Stiener's premise about everybody lying about what goes on at home is at least partly right in my case. You don't think I tell all the grim details about our house in this column, do you ? Then, too, some of the good things about our life and love are too precious to brag about I - o - I SAID I WAS GOING TO GET flowery with a Valentine column and I'm still going to do so in spite of Mrs. Stiener. It's Just that love and marriage are kind of like a rose bush. You can look at a rose bush and know blamed well that the thing has both blossoms and thorns. If you so choose you can go and on about how the thorns prick your finger and completely ignore how sweet the blossoms smell. On the other hand, you can concentrate on the velvety petals and the lovely shape of the blooms and forget the thorns. - o - SO IT IS WITH MARRIAGE. You can learn to appreciate the romance in it so much that you forget the grubbier details; or you can carp on the faults of your relationship so much that you ignore the beautiful part. But it should be remembered about both rose bushes and marriage: neither have blossoms on them all of the time and it takes a lot of cultivating and a little fertilizer to successfully produce either of them. - o - PERHAPS I AM AN INCURABLE optimist, but I swear there can be romance in life, even though you are married. Why, just last week my husband came home bringing me gardenias and when he presented me with them, he made quite a romantic speech. Of course, the gardenias were on a bush which he proceeded to plant in the front flower bed and the speech had mostly to do with horticulture, but I thought it was romantic. After all, only six or seven times previously had any guy brought me gardenias and they were always for a dance and turned brown about the time they started playing "Goodnight, Ladies". Now I can cut a fresh gardenia and wear it every time I go out even though it's only to the super-market I - o - ANOTHER THING I FIND ROMANTIC about, our marriage is Pay Day. This occasion is fully as thrilling as Valentine's Day and it comes twice ;«, month instead of Just once >a year. Besides that, even though I've made several errors in subtracting the check balance, it can't jhelp but swell, and that's about as inspiring a sight as I hope to 'see, nowadays. Then, too, on Pay Day Father is apt to throw all caution to the winds and live dangerously. He frequently pops for a steak and cooks it himself on the barbecue. Good Iowa sirloin and few dishes for me to wash I How romantic can you get ? - o - SHUCKS, WE ARE SO romantic at our house we even have poetry at the breakfast table. When Father finishes his first cup of coffee, he gestures with the cup and recites, soulfully, "Hey Bud! More mud." As I gracefully pour the beverage, I declaim, "Here, Pop. Your slop I" - o - BUT THE TIME WE GET MOST romantic is in the evening when we are all alone. The lights are low, the music soft and we sit close together and talk of many things - our hopes, dreams and desires. If you're going to dissect this romantic arrangement, I'll have to admit that both the low lights and the music are coming from the TV set; the reason I sit so close to Father is because I have to scratch his back; my hopes are mostly that I'll get the ironing done tomorrow and Father's dreams are of going fishing. But desire is always there, and I can tell by the look in Father's eyes when he is going to mention it. He gets carried away at such moments and calls me pet names. "Honey", he'll say, "I want you - to open up a can of sardines and slice off some cheese. I'm hungry." - o - ROMANCE IN MARRIAGE may be an illusion, but if it's all the same to Mrs. Stiener, I think I'll keep my illusions. After all if you take the romance out of marriage what have you got left ? Just a bunch of dirty dishes and a floor that needs scrubbing I -0- DURING THE WEEK OF FEB. 7 through 13 people having birthdays include Michael Rooney, Bill Smith, Jim Finn, Chloe Sheakley, Jim Logan, Craig Taylor, Cindy Cowan, Dr. H.
