Aug. 19. 1974 5 Woman Begins Career as Typist; Parlays Herself into Millionairess Society 7> gyUear By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: If I were Dear Abby for ten minutes, I would tell every woman in the world not lo marry a mam- ma's boy. One of the tip-offs is a man who is between 30 and 40 and not married. I married one of these yo- yos and it's the dumbest thing I ever did. Although he's a steady worker, that's all he knows how to do. I have to get him up in the morning, tell him what to wear and even when to change his clothes. He's so childish and helpless. He doesn't even know how to kiss. He clamps his lips together and presses them on my lips. I've tried to teach him how, but even after five years, he hasn't improved. He doesn't know the first thing about how to make love, either. So for the last two years, an hour before he gets home, I start gelling a "migraine." I'd go to a marriage coun- selor, but he won't go and no woman can save her marriage alone. Mamma's boys just want a rook and housekeeper and a bed partner for two minutes once a week. If I could get a job and support myself, I'd leave him. STUCK IN PEKIN, ILL. DEAR STUCK. Nobody is stopping you from trying. One woman's leftovers are another woman's banquet.
