NANCY DEAR NANCY. No It sounds to me like he's trying to complete a pass. ★ * * DEAR ABBY Concerning the 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 to him That s exactly what I want I suggested it to my husband once and he hit the ceiling. Everyone but a wife gets a vacation I mean a chance to really get away from the same old routine. Why does marriage have to In* a prison’’ I wish I were younger I'm 5H — too old to start over, or to go it alone Besides. I have no special training, so I guess I II just have to go on as I have even though my husband and I have little in common except our children So in order to bt* supported and keep the high regard of our children (now married) I II continue to allow my husband the intimacies I no longer en joy I honestly think that with all the changes taking place today women will eventually get a break and have the sexual freedom men have. Its too late for me. but not for my daughters. You can’t help me. Abby Nobody can But it would be interesting to know if I’m all alone in my outlook Or are there other women who feel this way0 BORN TOO SOON DEAR BORN. I’m sure you re nut alone. I bear from thousands of women your age who feel trapped in dull, tired marriages, but they ask how to improve those marriages. You didn t ask. so Ell not offer any advice. I ran tell you. though, that the answer is not in the “sexual freedom" vou wish you had.
