12-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -TiMtday, October 16, 197; Doris Clark Mom wonders if son, 28, will marry DEAR DORIS: My son, 28, is on the shy side Could you tell me if he is ever going to get married? Boys his age are married and have families but he doesn't care to have a girl friend. I tried to push him to think about it but he gets mad All he is interested in is sports. I'd like to see him married before he gets into his thirties. I buy his clothes. He's got a car and enough spending money. I can't see why he has to be like that Worried Mother DEAR MOTHER: When are you going to remove the heavy hand of the over-loving, over- possessive mother? Anybody who is still buy- ing her son's clothes at 28 can hardly hope for him to think of something as adult as getting married! You haven't said whether he is working or whether the car, too, is the result of your generosity. Once you remove the apron strings and he dis- covers himself as a grown man, then he will have to decide whether or not he wants to marry. Right now you alienate him from the whole idea. If he decides he would rather go it alone, that's up to him Has it occurred to you that he may dread the idea of taking on another woman in his life somebody who will con- tinue to oversee every last thing he does and cushion all the bumps which would help a person reach maturity? DEAR DORIS: What am I to do? I am a widower, raising three They help with housework and we enjoy one d.notlier My problem is that in order to work up the business I have started, I just can't put in any time at keeping house. I need a housekeeper, but even if I could find one I'd be afraid to have her stay here Maybe I'm oversexed. I miss having a woman so much that I wouldn't trust myself with one in the house. And I don't want to make any trouble. Is there some kind of medication that reduces a man's sex drive' Afraid of Myself. DEAR AFRAID: I asked my medical con- sultant about it and he said no. He can help the man who needs virility but not the guy who has too much! How about hiring day help, or a male housekeeper? You are doing a fine job, to judge from your long letter (of which I have only had room for a little here) We can't help but admire your struggles to keep your family afloat, and we both doubt that anything about your urges is abnormal.
