Kingsport Times (Newspaper) - September 8, 1954, Kingsport, TennesseeKingsport times wednesday september 8, 1954 Beatrice Fairfax says perhaps Home is lacking when Man prefers bar what can you say to a Man who would rather Rush to his cronies in a bar after work spend his Money on Beer than come Home to his family my husband feels that it is perfectly All right to do this. He says he works hard and needs recreation. I work hard. Too. But if i even mention joining the women s society at Church for example he crows very so begins a letter from a Dis busted. Discouraged wife who goes on to say my husband spends at least two hours every Iii it after work in the bar and about once a week does t come Home at All until it closes at two in the morning. There have been times when i have Hud to cancel social engagement be cause he just could t tear himself away from the bar. He has one night a week out for club be sides Bowling and various other activities. I really Don t have much incentive to Cook for him any More. He eats his food cold or not at All. The children and i to ahead and eat at six whether he is there or not. If he in to they ask where is daddy what is he do inst what should one answer they love him and otherwise he is a Good father. I have tried keeping quiet about things but that did t help a bit. Perhaps a word from someone else would mean what is ii kit family Atmus i Kkt first let or ask this woman question or two. What kind of family atmosphere does her husband come Home to is she always cheerful and smiling and does she Greet him As though she were truly glad to see him or docs she Start nagging at him As soon As he comes in the door so that he wishes he had stayed away next Lime does so naturally. I am not minimizing the Effort it would be for a wife to Greet lovingly a husband who is so inconsiderate of her. But it is nevertheless True that a Man is far More Likely to come Home if he knows love and peace and Happy companionship Are waiting for him than if he has come to expect scolding and reproaches. It could be. Of course that this wife has tried affection and found it got her nowhere. But it is something to think Over anyhow. For an Active immediate step to take it seems to me she definitely should have some outside interests of her own. Especially since her husband on his Side seems to be so Well supplied with them. My feeling would be that she should quietly join the women s society of which she Speaks or any other group she wishes and make her own plans for taking part in its program. If she can arrange for someone to stay with the children on the nights she wants to attend meetings that would be the thing to do. If her husband comes Home and finds her gone and someone else with the children she should simply say that since he is Home in the evening to Seldom she has decided to have some evenings off too. And she should not permit herself to be drawn into argument or quarrel Over it. Possibly it the children Are not so Small that they must be in bed very Early there might be Occa Sions when she could take them with her to some event. But How Ever she May find it advisable to arrange things she should most i certainly have outside her Home in her life. To make room for them might Well Lead to turning Point in her situation. As for the questions the children ask about their father All she can do is to say something like daddy s Busy. Hell be Home whatever she says she should to let them get the idea that she and their father Are at Odds for that will Only make them feel insecure. She should think Over too. The possibility of having a talk with someone like her minister or priest and getting suggestions from him. Knowing her husband such a person should be in a Good position to advise her.
