Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February UETMMIDQE HERALD-19 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: In a recent column a reader reported on the Gay Lib parade. That was quite a letter More recently millions of Americans had a chance to view first hand the Gay protester who brushed by the security officers at NBC and brazenly tried to take over the Today Show. I'm writing about another kind of problem, however one that is shared by more wives than you realize. What is she to do when, after several years of marriage, a woman discovers she is being used as a cover-up for a bi- sexual husband who prefers men' My husband is a professional man, an accomplished liar, quite masculine even sexy- looking I've tried counselling and the final evaluation revealed that my husband has no respect for women and even less for wives. I believe homosexuals should be permitted to marry each other. It would then preclude them from ruining the lives of women they use simply as decoys Do you think we will ever live to see the day when homosexuals can legally marry each other9 The Cover Girl Dear Girl: Yes. I do. But not for the reason you mentioned Many homosexuals feel that the existing tax laws discriminate against them They believe that since they live as a "married" couple they should be permitted to file joint income tax reports Dear Ann Landers: I wish you could help me to say thank you to a teenager I met during my stay "at Holy Cross hospital All I know about her is that her first name is Debbie, and she is a Candy Striper who works Mondays and Wednesdays When I was a patient recently this darling teenager did small favors for me like brushing my hair, writing letters. feeding me, and straightening the bedclothes She often came during her lunrh hour when she was off dutv to do "extra" things I J-iALF would wait for her and I always felt better in her presence. The two things I remember most about Debbie are her smile and her warm personality. On my last day I did want to say goodbye to her but a nurse's aide informed me that Debbie had hurt her back while lifting a patient and she was in the emergency room waiting for x-rays. I left without saying thank you I hope you will print this letter, Ann So often we hear of the teenagers who are in trouble and rarely does anyone mention the good things others do Grateful Dear G.: Here's your letter of thanks to Debbie. Now, may I add mine, not only to her, but to all the Candy Stripers who do such a wonderful job. Dear Ann Landers: You have made it a point in your column to warn people about the "secret high blood pressure, but you have never said anything about low blood pressure. My mother has had it for years and it worries me terribly, although she isn't the least bit concerned. Can low blood pressure be dangerous9 What should be done about it? Mom doesn't like doctors and hasn't seen one since my little sister was born six years ago What do you say? Charleston, W. Va. Dear Chas: I say it's time for her to see a doctor, whether she likes them or not Sometimes low blood pressure is a symptom of real trouble. Your mother might have a thyroid problem, anemia or perhaps there's an infection somewhere in her body. Tell her she has been very foolish for the past six years and her luck could run out any day now What's prudish? What's O.K.? If you aren't sure, you need some help.

Mary McRae and Betty Wright, social workers with the Family Service Bureau, said most people wait until there is a crisis or until after the divorce to look for help. Miss McRae said: "We try to get couples to come in two or three times to look at where they want to go. to pre- vent them from jumping blindly, to find out if there is anything there to work on." Mrs. Wright said: "Most really come when the mar- riage is over, when there is no marriage to save." The most recent national statistics show the divorce rate for 1969 as 123.8 per 000 population. In Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.. a city of about there were 278 di- vorces in 1973, an increase of 76 over the 1972 total Mrs Wright and Miss McRae agreed there is less stigma to divorce now than there once was But it still is a difficult experience for most people to handle emotionally. "There's an attitude about failure generally in our society that comes into mar- riage as much as into busi- ness or anything else." said Mrs Wright. "We get people who can't afford a psy- chiatrist Many of them are working-class people who ad- here to older standards. "We get people very ori- ented to family life. The breakdown really causes them a lot of pain "People need divorce coun- selling as much as marriage counselling." Miss McRae said: "We want them to look at what things they should be thinking about before they say let's break this up and get on with it "What are their basic goals7 Do they have com- plementary wants or are they really poles apart? What are their approaches to life7 Do they really want to live to- They work with the adults and involve the children only if it seems necessary. Mrs. Wright said: "In many cases they come to us at the point of separation, and they're concerned about the children. We tell them chil- dren can ride with the cur- rent Miss McRae said: "If the parents hate each other, the children may be better off to live with one parent who's content "People say, 'we don't fight in front of the children', but children can feel the tension. "We try to say, 'if you're going to live together, get along or else split up. Take some constructive action.'" Mrs. Wright added: "But you act as a listening post, a catalyst. Ask people to look at the choices We can't make the decision for them After a divorce, there usu- ally is a period of stress while learn to live alone. Mrs Wright said women most often come in because they're having trouble coping with then: new responsibility for their chil- dren Fewer men look for lelp. but when they do it usu- ally is a practical problem ?uch as visiting rights.
