New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 18, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung a Friday April o 3A Breaking up is hard to do with DEAR ABBY For the last seven months I was involved in a serious relationship with I became close to his parents as well 1 baked cookies with his mother watched television with his father and was considered part of the family Rocky and I began having difficulties In the middle of one of our his mother called me and told me how much she missed me Even considering our young ages 16 and she confessed she had hoped to see us marry one day Her concern for my wellbeing touched me and I was grateful for her attention My relationship with Rocky has finally ended It was my decision because I think he has a lot of growing up to do and I dont see myself in his immediate future But I miss the bond I had with Rockys parents Am I expected to remain friends with them or do I now ignore their existence I would appreciate any advice you can give me IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR You may find that as time passes you will not be so eager to spend time with Rockys parents However in the mean time there is nothing to prevent you from maintaining a friendship with them if everyone is comfortable with the arrangement Ask them how they feel about staying in touch with you DEAR ABBY Why arent you more honest with your readers and tell them why so many men are nervous about marriage Its because the price of marriage is simply too high for most men The majority lose 50 percent of their assets and 100 percent of their children when they divorce They are the ones who pay child support They are the ones who pay alimony Men are the defendants in 70 percent of divorce cases and are blamed for most of the problems in a relationship Nobody would expect a man to invest in a business with a 50 percent failure rate and longterm financial and emotional consequences So why are women surprised when men balk at such a foolhardy commitment as HeraldZeitung photo
