corporate world after being selfemployed for several years and am now facing a personal dilemma that I do not wish to share with a friend or family member I hope you will tell me what to do Your response cannot be sent either to my home or office so please put it in your column The companys chief executive and his wife are having a social event and I have received an invitation addressed to Mr and Mrs So It is a blacktie affair My wife is a recovering alcoholic not wellversed in social graces and somewhat lacking in basic con versational skills She also does not have the proper wardrobe for a formal event and does not feel like investing money in a gown that will probably get very little use And to be perfectly honest Ann I am afraid she would make a poor impression and embarrass me The question Would it be acceptable for me to attend this affair without her Of course I would cover for her absence tactfully saying she had family obligations Please give me some guidance Husband in a Bind Dear Husband When I read your letter my heart ached for your wife I hope I have your story straight Here it is You are now a corpo rate executive in a new position and have ANN LANDERS Advice been invited as a couple to a formal company event and want to know if it is acceptable to go without your wife You say she is a recovering alcoholic and might embarrass you By recovering I assume your wife is in a recovery pro gram such as Alcoholics Anonymous and does not drink My advice is as follows Give your wife instructions to go out and buy a lovely formal gown and the appropriate shoes Suggest that she make an appointment to get her hair done and be sure to tell her how lovely she looks Forget about her social graces and conversa tional skills The poor woman hasnt had much practice and she probably wont open her mouth Please let me know you followed my advice and how the evening turned out Dear Ann Landers I am writing about the woman who felt betrayed by her inlaws because they maintained a relationship with their sons exwife I would like to speak for the inlaws since I am one and have had con siderable experience Id do anything to maintain a cordial rela tionship with my exdaughterinlaw because I love my grandchildren with all my heart and want to be part of their lives I have bent over backward to be kind and loving toward my sons former wife and have extended a welcoming hand to her new husband Happily I have frequent contact with the grandchildren and often babysit for days at a time I am aware however that if anything should go wrong in the relationship she now has with my son her she would cut me off without a second thought I walk on eggshells around her to make certain I am always welcome because my major concern is to stay in contact with my grandchildren I am building a solid relationship with the grandchildren NOW so if anything should happen down the road between their mother and me they will want me in their lives on their own Grandma
