UNiT 34 DEAR ANN LANDERS: Two years ago I was still a teen- ager. Three years ago I was slill a virgin. My lover dropped me for another girl whom he later married when her father offered him a nice job. Now when he loins into me. at socifl functions he gives me a knowing wink. What I remember most about our love affair was the constant fear of pregnancy. Like so many other stupid kids we had the idea that any attempt to prevent pregnancy made the relationship cheap and unnatural. Glow crazy can you 1 now realize that virginity Is a young woman's most precious gift. I Em ashamed for having laughed at this con- cept and having considered it ridiculous and phony. My ques- tion is, shall I tell my wonderfully mature, highly principled fiance, ahout the past affair before we marry, or live in fear t'nat the cad u-ith the knowing v.-ink will one day brag his conquest and do me in'.' 1 hope you will answer. Ann Onimous DEAR ANN: If your (iar.ce is "wonderfully mature and highly-principled" he won't ask. To volunteer such informa- tion would be stupid. Such confessions might be considered "good for the soul" or some people call it "clearing the air." but my mail tells me it can be a lime bomb that might ex- plode later and destroy 8 relationship. DEAR AXN' LANDERS: f'm only 17 years old so of course nobody in this dumb family listens to me. But I know some- thing is wrong and if you print my letter and your answer. Aunt Millie will surely see it because she quotes you all the time Aunt Millie has been divorced fnr three years. Her son is is six years old. The boy's father left the country and with luck he'll never come back. He was no good. Aunt Millie's son Is a very pretty kid looks more like a girl than a hoy. His hair is long (gorgeous blonde eurls> and his mother puts ribbons in it and makes up his face when company comes over. week she bought him some orgajidy pinafores and took pictures of him in his girlie outfit. The child acls like a girl and T see real trouble ahead. I mentioned il to my mother and she said, "He'll outgrow it." She also told me lo mind my own business. Wliat are Ihe chances for this boy growing up to lie n normal male? Worried DEAR WORRIED: Very slim His mama obviously wants a girl, and her son is going lo see lo it lhal she isn't disap- pointed. If someone can talk some sense into your Aunt Mil- lie's head soon and get lhat hoy to a therapist, he might tw salvaged provided Mama gets some therapy too.
