Women’s Best Security Is Learning a Marketable Skill
DEAR ABBY: I am a professional counselor at a large, urban community college. I am greatly disturbed by the number of women with few marketable skills whose husbands have left them after several years of marriage.
Forgetting the moral issues involved. almost every woman has told me that either she was discouraged by her husband from obtaining meaningful employment, or she believed that the marriage would last forever and she would be well taken care of. In any event, few were prepared for more than a minimum-wage job that wouldn’t even pay for child care.
I emphasize this w hen talking to female students, but I might as well be talking to a brick wall. Abby, please encourage your readers, especially the young females, to realize that their marriage has a 50-50 chance of breaking up. and that they should complete their educations be
fore they have children so if their marriages fail, they can at least support themselves in a decent fashion.
FRED EMERLING, Ph.D., FRESNO CITY COLLEGE.
DEAR DR. EMERLING: I have been harping on that theme for as long as I have been giving
I repeat: Young women — learn a ahi ll, so you will never have to ask your husband, your father, your boyfriend or your government to take care of you.

"What Every Teen Should Know.” To order, send a long. buaineaa-aixe, teif-addreeeed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.S6 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Alday, Teen Booklet. P.O.
