Equal partners claim true love
Dear Abby: In response to “Happy to Be Ron’s Girl” (yuck, yuck): I am dismayed that someone can call herself an old-fashioned girl yet shirk her moral responsibilities and be Ron’s live-in honey instead of his wife. “Ron’s Girl” has a warped definition of “true love” since they are not willing to make Hie commitment of marriage. Ron’s got it made! He has all the benefits of lover, mommy, maid and slave without the hassle of commitment.
My husband and 1^ are both working professionals, and we share household responsibilities. Just because I don’t want to spend my life being my husband’s maid doesn’t mean I’m “lazy.” We have an'equal partnership, which my husband and I agree is the definition of “true love.” Unlike “Ron’s Girl,” who didn’t have enough courage to let you print her name, you may print mine. I stand behind my convictions.
Stacy L. Verdick Case, Blaine, Minn.
Dear Stacy: Since I ran the letter from MHappy to Be Ron’s Girt,” I have been inundated with mail from irate readers who were morally offended at the thought of couples living together. Read on.
Dear Abby: “Happy to Be Ron’s Girl” boasted that she had good looks and brains and was happy to serve her man a good meal and show her love by doing his laundry. That’s fine and dandy, and I applaud her for it. But she went on to brand women who “aspire to shirking domestic duties” as lazy.
Well, rd like to add another thing: She’s also smug and arrogant. How dare this supposedly “brainy” woman flaunt her holier-than-thou attitude and pass judgment on the rest of us who are domestically challenged! In my opinion, there are other ways of showing your love besides cooking and ironing clothes. For 12 years, I have been happily married to a loving, wonderful man who married me despite my well-known aversion to household chores and inability to
follow a recipe.
To “Ron’s Girl,” I say: To each her own, sister. And if you’re so great, how come he has not given you a wedding ring to “prove” his love?
Please don’t use my real name. Just sign me...
Incensed in Florida
In response to “Happy to Be Ron’s Girl” — the woman who scolded j contemporary women for not catering to or waiting on their men: I am a 38-year-old married career woman and the mother of two teenagers. I possess some excellent oldfashioned morals, thanks to my parents who taught me love, respect and a host of other decent things. Those two people would be the first ones to promote and endorse “equality” in the home.
We don’t use the word, however. Rather, we stress responsibility and contribution by everyone. I pity “Ron’s Girl,” who probably has never experienced the joy of coming home to clean dishes or supper prepared by a loving husband

married her beloved husband, Ben Hardy. Gloria lived her entire life in the New Braunfels area where she raised her three children and established many endearing friendships.

seven representing Asia to two representing the US and Canada. Just looking at the number in each group, the students were able to predict the way the food and wealth would be divided.
“In the US and Canada, they’re probably not going to have a problem with having enough food because they only have two people," one student pointed out.
Laudun then passed out peanuts, divided according to the food availability and wealth of each region.
“You’re going to get an idea of how much we actually have or don’t have based on what you see,” she said.
Many of the students were upset when their group received three or four peanuts compared to the pile of peanuts US and Canada received.
“Can I move to the United States?" asked one boy in the Latin America group that received four peanuts. “I’m packing my bags and moving.” The students quickly realized the importance of sharing and reaching out to people in other countries.
“Ifs not fair to people in Africa and Asia, and the people in the other countries should donate food to them,” said another student in the Asia group.
The students then got to crack their nuts open and count the actual number of peanuts they had and divide them among the members of the group. The students realized that
by dividing what they had and sharing, there was enough for everyone.
But helping feed the less fortunate was not the only lesson the students learned. Laudun pointed out the amount of peanut shells left behind. One student said that even though the United States had fewer people, they produced more waste. The group thought of several ways this amount could actually be reduced through reuse and recycling.
However, the lesson of sharing was driven home. One boy suggested students and parents write the President of the United States about the problem. Others said food drives were important, and wanted to collect food at school.
“ I thought (the project) was really
neat,” said student Megan Mitchell. “I never knew some countries like Asia and Africa were so short of food. It taught me a lot.”
