DKAR AUBY: Concerning Ihe man who was married 25 years and wanted his wife to give him one weekend off from his marriage every month: How I wish I were married lo him. That's exact- ly what I want. I suggested il lo my hus- band once and he hit the ceil- ing. Kveryone but a wife gels a vacation. I mean a chance lo really gel away from Ihe same old routine. Why does mar- riage have In be a prison? I wish I were younger. I'm 5lj _ too old lo start over, or to go il alone. Besides, I have no special training, so I guess I'll just have to go on as I have even though my husband and I have little in common except our children. So in order lo be supported and keep the high regard of our children (now married) I'll continue to allow my husband the intimacies I no longer enjoy. I honestly think lhat with all Ihe changes taking place to- day women will eventually gel a break and have Ihe sexual freedom men have. It's too lale for me. bill not for my daughters.
