He had to work his way through school. Was a country boy and lacks knowledge of many of the niceties of life. His grammar is not perfect and I am embarrassed at times by his lack of knowledge of conventions. He is a splendid man in every way, devoted to me and I am much in love with him, but I wonder after I am married to him if the fact that we have been reared oh different planes will make any difference to me?-F. E. W. Answer: Not unless you put too much stress on the conventions or unless you undertake to lift your husband up to your level. A man's morals, his disposition, his kindness of heart and his energy are a lot more important than his pronunciation or his grammar or the way he holds his fork. But unless you can feel that way about them and laugh at his provincialism instead of letting it get on your nerves, don't marry him. And don't marry any man with the notion back in your head that as soon as you get him you are going to make him over to suit your taste. There is nothing on earth that a man resents as much as he does criticism from his wife, and no other human being from Racine Business Men Modem Air Conditioned Studio Have Your Business Portrait Made Now Portraits by Pets -UPTOWN- 1915 WASHINGTON AVE. whom he will not take it with a better grace. And the reason for this is obvious. Every man wants to be a hero to his wife. He wants her to look up to him and admire him, and when she begins pointing out his defects to him it humiliates him so that he can't stand it. Her air of superiority galls him beyond endurance and he flies from her to some woman who flatters him and tells his he is an oracle. Take your man "as is" or leave him in peace. -DOROTHY DIX. Dear Miss Dix: I am an old maid, 59, tired of teaching and living alone. I am sure there is some one somewhere that I could make very happy, but I have no opportunity to meet people. Do you think I am too old to be a traveling companion? Can you suggest something other than contentment, which is impossible in my situation? -AMBITIOUS STILL. Answer: I am afraid not. Most of us have to see our visions of what we would like fade in the thin air and content ourselves with our lots. It is a tragedy for you and for the unknown man that you will never meet. There are so many men who need good wives and so many women who could make them so happy, and there is no way to bring them together. Certainly you are not too old to be a traveling companion, but I am afraid there would be very little chance of getting such a job -DOROTHY DIX. Dorothy Dix cannot reply personally to readers, hut will answer problems of general interest through her column. (Releaaed br the Bell Syndicate. Inc.)
