Poodle Doesn't Rate Red Carpet Treatment *» DEAR ABBY: I signed a three-year lease for an apartment in a very expensive high rise building, at which time the manager assured me that there w'ould alway:- be someone available to walk “Her Highness,” my French poodle. I would not have rented the apartment without that stipulation, and it w-as my understanding that it was written into my lease. Everything was fine for 14 months. The elevator man, the guard, the janitor or the manager himself would walk Her Highness regularly. Well, the building changed ownership, and the new manager instructed all the help that they were not to walk any dogs on company time! When I told the new manager that it had been wri:ten into my lease, he laughed and said I must be kidding. I then phoned my lawyer, who checked my lease, and he said it had not been written in! What do I do now? STUMPED IN CHICAGO DEAR STUMPED: Make new arrangements to have Her Highness walked. Trying to hold the new management to an agreement you had with the old management will be a royal headache. DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and Rick is 20. We’ve been going steady for three years and planned to marry last Christmas. I had the wedding invitations printed and started making plans when Rick said he wanted to wait a while. No reason. He just wanted to wait. At Easter we set the wedding for June. I had some more wedding invitations printed and had my wedding gowr. put on layaway. My girlfriends éven had some showers for me. Then Rick decided to wait until autumn! Again no reason. He says he still loves me, but I’m starting to wonder now. I am so embarrassed and hurt. I told him if he doesn’t go through with it this time, we’re finished. He says he still wants me to be his girlfriend, no matter what. Tell me what to do. HUMILIATED DEAR HUMILIATED: Face it, dear, Rick isn’t ready for marriage, and you’re lucky he had the sense and courage to admit it. Better a broken engagement than a broken marriage. Make a clean break, and don’t be his “girlfriend.” It won’t work.

Contracts save embarrassment By JANET LOWE There was an uncomfortable silence in the room. Judge Mary (^11, a municipal magistrate from Chxúa Vista, (^lif., had just told a group of women that, before marrying, they should see an attorney, and perhaps draw up a premarital agreement. “How do you tell a man you love that you’re already planning ahead for divorce?” protested one shocked lady. llie judge s^gested that the only realistic time to discuss such matters is when you’re stUl friends. Besides, an advapce agreement could reduce tensions which might lead to ali^ation. It isn’t easy to separate our tender feelings and become suddenly practical and objective concerning property and money. But the wealthy are said to do it, and many marital counselors are encouraging the rest of us to do it as well. It would be simpler if state (M* local laws required that couples face the fx*eacher with marital contract in hand. That would dissolve some of the embarrassment, and it would certainly encourage forethought. But since that is not the case, many couples are now draw- Little New York By MRS. EUGENE KIRBY Mr. and Mrs. Donald Davis of Champaign, 111. and Mrs. Virginia Baker of Anderson were the recent guests of Mrs. Burl Woods. Bruce Snodgrass has been released from Riley Hospital, Indianapolis. Recent visitors of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moody were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Riebeling and Mrs. John Riebeling of Foley, Ala. ing up such agreements simply because they are aware of what is happening in many marriages today. The divorce rate doubled between 1960 and 1973. The national trend in divorce legislation is toward no-fault dissolution and without fault spousal support is expected to become limited or just fade away. One-third of American women between 55 and 64 are either widowed or divorced, and therefore living alone. Later in life that number increases because women tend to live longer, and since they usually marry men older than themselves. There are other factors. Women are now marrying later. More are employed before pnd during marriage. Also the number of remarriages has increased, which *toeans that both husband and wife often bring children of a previous marriage into the contract. This can be sticky in community property states. One woman who insisted on a premarital agreement did so simply to protect her adult children. “I’d been divorced for nearly 10 years before re-maiTying, and daring that time the children helped maintain the house. Tliey painted and gardened and did without extras when they were stUl in school just so we could stay in our own home. I think they deserve to inherit the house.” The experts suggest that women become familiar with the property laws in their own states, and with the federal inheritance laws. Farm wives in Illinois have been protesting the inheritance laws which consider that the husband owns the farm. She may have wwked there all her life, but when he dies, the wife pays inheritance tax as if she hadn’t contributed to the farm at all. It is also wise to understand your personal financial situation. One woman was shocked to discover, when she went to divorce court, that the business which she and her husband started and built together, legally belonged to him. She’d managed the business for 15 years, but was considered an employe rather than a partner. Don’t be afraid to ask the experts for advice. Many banks, universities and investment firms conduct seminars on financial planning, and attendance is sometimes free. Become informed by attending such sessions and by reading up on the subject. If you still don’t understand the laws, or if you’re not sure how they apply to you, go to an attorney with specific questions. Women are becoming more informed. Most know they need not change their names or credit record at time of marriage, and they no longer consider it tasteless or unloving to keep their individual financial identity. Most married couples are beginning to realize that a woman’s financial planning is good for the whole family. A premarital agreement mi^t return property to the original owners at time of divorce, but could favor the surviving spouse when one dies. Separate credit sometimes gives the family wider borrowing options than they might otherwise have. Mrs. Lovica Sedwic|c served as hostess during the August meeting of the Sugar Creek Rural Homemakers Club. Mrs. Flava Graham read the thought fcÁ- the day. Devotions were given by Mrs. Claudia McKinney. Mrs. Eugene Bonecutter led the club prayer. The next meeting will be in the home of Mrs. Marie Fearnow.
