Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 29, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HE5ALB Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We have two daughters, 15 and 16 years of age. They are attractive, well-behaved, fine stu- dents, and I am proud of them. My husband's younger sister had to get married at the age of 16 to a bey of another race. The marriage was a disaster. It ruined his parents' lives and my husband never forgave his sister. Now he is nutty on tte subject of young girls and sex. He says, "It's always the girl's fault. She is responsible for what happens to tier body." From the time boys began to show up around our place (about three years ago) my husband has been asking our daughters questions like. "How far have you gone with that fellow? Has he ever tried to touch A few days ago, for no reason, he started to warn them that if they ever got pregnant he would throw them out of the house. Last night he was waiting up for the oldest girl who came in at midnight (which was well within her He kept her up till a.m. asking personal questions. She was in (ears this morning when she told me about it. His lack of confidence and trust is making our daughters hate their father. Furthermore. I ani alraid he is giving them an unhealthy attitude toward sex and making them suspicious of all boys. He keeps harping on the fact that they are all alter only one thing. What can I do? in Des Homes DEAR D.: Keep the lines of communication open. Let the girls know you trust them. Explain that the tragedy of his Eista's life has twisted their father's thinking. If you could prevail upon him to get counselling it would be helpful. It is apparent that your husband is obsessed with the subject and he could use some professional help. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm in love with a high-level executive in this city. He is married so we must meet sec- retly. Whenever he takes an overnight business trip I meet him there. We can't even be seen on the same plane to- gether. For five years I've been spending evenings and nights with him in hotel rooms. We can't even go out for dinner. We must rely on room service. He writes me the beautiful love letters I've ever read, but of course he cannot sign them. My responses must be sent to a private post-office box. He gives me cash for the plane tickets and not a dime more. At Christmas and on my birthday he gives me nice gifts. I always felt this was fair until a few days ago when I learned by accident that he buys his secretary gifts, too and they are much more costly than the gifts he has bought me. I am very hurt. I believe the contribution I make to his life is far more important than what she does for him Am I rieht? Just answer this question. No morality lectures, please, Clarissa DE.AR CLAN: I don't know what his secretary is contri- butina to his life and neither do you. It might be that she's making some special contribution over and beyond the call of duty. Most men who cheat on their wives also cheat on their mistresses. Confidential to Living By Bread Alone: Sorry, but I don't call that living, and it's not even bread. It's crumbs from someone else's loaf. See a lawyer and leam what your rights are. Your letter reminded me of the woman who con- tinued to hit herself over the head with a hammer because it felt so good when she stopped. rr C- Tttwiilvi
