Husband,\ wife splitting hairs
By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN
DEAK ABBY: I’m 39, divorced for three years. In the last 15 months I’ve worked 16 hours a day, five days a week, and eight hours every Saturday and Sunday to help my 15-year-old unmarried daughter through a rough ordeal. She became pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful child. I paid all the hospital and doctor bills and saw to it that she and the baby had everything they needed.
I’ve been dating a fine man for two years. He’s been through a lot with me and asked me to marry him. I’ve said yes to a January wedding. The problem is he lives in another town, IOO miles away, and my daughter refuses to move with me.
After working so hard for her, all I ask is that she finish high school I which will take two years) and live under my care until she’s 18.
Her excuse for not wanting to move is she does not want to leave her friends. Should I demand that she move with us. or let her quit school and get a job when she turns 16 — three months from now?
DEAR TORN: Thus far your daughter has never had to take responsibility for her actions because you have always come to her rescue.
It’s time you let your little girl grow up. If you forced her to move with you, she would probably become hostile and angry and run away.
Try this approach instead: Tell her you want her to move with you, but she may stay behind if she is able to support herself and provide adequately for her child. After she puts pencil to paper and sees for herself that she can't make it alone, she will agree to
move with you.
And the decision will have been hers.
DEAR ABBY: This may see trivial, but it may break up my marriage of almost 25 years. It’s my wife’s hairstyle.
A couple of years ago she had her hair cut very short. I told her at the time I thought it was too short and I didn’t like it. She told me her friends liked it and I would just have to live with it.
After a year and a half, she let it grow, and now she has another hairstyle that makes her look ridiculous. It’s so bizarre, it actually reduced my otherwise healthy sexual interest in her.
I find it difficult to look at her and don’t even want to be seen with her! What bothers me most is that she is so insensitive to my feelings.
I need a solution — short of taking a walk.
STUMPED IN EVANSTON
DEAR STUMPED: The central issue here is more than a hairstyle.
Why should your wife’s hairstyle be so all-important to you? And why should she insist on a hairstyle her husband finds so unappealing?
You both need to see a counselor and let your hair down.

Rain kept falling on the Pacific Northwest early today, but the force of the storm abated from the windy deluge that already has killed three people and caused thousands of dollars in damage.
The storm, with wind gusts clocked as high as 84 mph late Wednesday and Thursday, also left thousands of residents of Washington and Oregon without power and and flooded dozens of homes when rivers and creeks rose above their banks.
The rain today swept from the upper and rnid-Pacific coast to the northern Rockies. Ught rain also fell over much of the nation’s north-central area.
Strong winds, meanwhile, ushered colder air into the Northeast, which had balmy weather on Thursday.
Showers were expected to continue later today over the Pacific Northwest, upper California, Nevada, Idaho, the northern Plateau and parts of the upper Rockies.
Forecasters said there was a chance of light snow over the upper Ohio Valley and the North Atlantic states.
Temperatures before dawn ranged from I degree in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., to 71 degrees in Key West, Fla.
Bernadine Dunlap, secretary of the council, did the necessary research on which types of flowers to plant, where to purchase them and finally where to plant them. Council members did the planting.
The project was funded by the Garden Ridge-Bracken Lions Club. Russell Klingmsmith, president of the club, recently presented a check to the council to pay for the project.
