Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Otlojtr 29, 1970 THE LETHHIDGI HERAID It Modern Marriage A Mess, Shoulder TheBlame' TORONTO (CP) A To- ronto marriage counsellor says moden marriage is in a mess and women must shoul- der most of the blame. .Dr. Steven Demeler, head of the Metropolitan Toronto Family Service Association's north Toronto branch, said in an interview 'here, women have achieved much of their emancipation at the cost of destroying the male-female relationship. He said few men know what women expect of them now. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: The problem is my husband's, weight. I know neither you nor I can do anything about it but I'm hoping Ed sees this letter in the paper .and is mo- tivated to do something himself. Everything else has failed. When wo were married Ed was a beautiful 180 pounds, wore a size 40 suit. Now. 17 years later, he squeezes himself into a size 48 and refuses to say how much he weighs. It can't be an ounce under 265. Ed has been to two doctors. They both' ruled out thyroid trouble. One doctor said, in my presence, "The over-worked gland is his mouth." I plan Ed's meals carefully, no fats, no starches, low-cal desserts, sugar-free canned goods. When I find candy-bar wrappers and empty peanut sacks in his car I get so mad I nearly explode. He drinks beer like it was free. The only muscles that get any exercise are his eyeballs great TV watcher. The two big loves in Ed's life are food and sex. Unfor- tunately, the love for food is destroying his ability to have sex. It is also destroying my desire for him. It's not easy to get sexually. aroused by a man who has eaten himself out of shape. I've tried my darndest to fake it but I'm a poor actress and he can tell. This makes him unhappy arid sometimes he is impotent. Ed is a good man, devoted and kind and I do love him. But I worry that he is shortening his life, ruining his; health and hurting our marriage. Is there anything you caiv think of to help him? in Seattle DEAR WORRIED: Please reread the first eleven words in the second sentence of your letter to me. Truer words were never spoken. Every overweight person must accept re- sponsibility for himself. and this means responsibility for every ounce of fat he has added to his frame. Until HE; decides to do something about it, nothing will happen. I have considerable faith in: (1) Professional counselling. Sometimes when fat people learn WHY they are stuffing them- selves, they quit. (2) Weight Watchers. This organization has produced extraordinary results for overweight people who have tried everything else without results. Seattle has several chapters and meeting places. (Look in the phonebook.) .Do NOT urge Ed to follow either of these suggestions. Hand him this column and if he wants to act on it be will. Dr. Dcmeter said he is anx- ious that the emancipation of women he completed as soon as possible. Hie trouble now, he said, is that society is in "the neces- sary transitional phase to- wards a more equitable ar- rangement between men and women." This causes tension between the sexes, he said. Dr. Demeter said he blames women for demolishing the traditional male role and not replacing it with a new image. TYPES HUSBANDS Today's husbands can put into two categories, he said. "First there are the men desperately clinging to the traditional roles. They're the ones who do a lot of table- pounding and shouting to maintain their iriasculine egos. They're also the wife and child-beaters, which they use as a last resort to boost their fading image." The second type, he said, are those who accept the egal- itarian distribution of roles. But Dr. Demeter said he has found ths "50-50 partner- ship principle isn't working" in today's marriages. He said in many cases the husband becomes the weaker of the two, and this causes sexual problems. Many women complain they cannot make love to a man they do not respect. Dr. Demeter said he often advises women to force the husband into making the deci- Classified Compliment SUDBURY, Ont.

I A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN DEAR MISS BROOKFIELD: My husband has a habit thai has irritated me for years. He'll often come home from work, bolt down his dinner, pul on his coat and be off to spend the rest of the evening with his He never gives any thought to how I might want to spend the evening. Also, I can never make any advance plans for myself since I never know when he's going to take off. With all this talk about wom- en's liberation, I wonder if I shouldn't finally do something about it. B. G., Shrevepori, La. DEAR B. G.: Women's lib or not, it's high time the tables were turned. Why not plan an occasional evening out with the girls? Then announce to your spouse that you won't be home for din- ner. When he has to shift for himself he may get the mes- sage and be a little more thoughtful in the future. Thai doesn't mean he'll stop going out with his pals just that he may start giving you some advance notice for a change.
