OF A HUSBAND
A PROBLEM OF THE DAY IS TAK
EN UP AND DISCUSSED BY A
WHO CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS
Plattsmouth Lady Expresses Opinion
That Carelessness of Husbands
Leads to Family Break-Ups
From Thursday's Dal..
One of the problems of the das
throughout the nation is that of the
vast increase in the number of di-t
vorce cases and of domestic unhappi
ness and the solution of this prob
lem has been debated by some of the
greatest of the men and women of
the nation. A large percentage of
the cases have been found to have
originated from the dissatisfaction
caused in the homes by the seeming
neglect of the husband that leads the
wives into the seeking of other com
pany and in numerous cases leads to
domestic tragedies that wreck the
lives of both husband and wife. One
of the Plattsmouth ladies has ad
dressed a letter to the Journal deal
ing with this problem and for the
benefit of our readers it is printed
and those who can offer satisfactory
answers are invited to let this trou
bled wife know through our col
umns: Plattsmouth. Neb. Sept. 15. 1920.
To the editor of the Journal,
I would like to have you print
these few questions from a lonely
Why does so many married women
Why does a man neglect his wife?
Why does he leave her without
as much as a good-bye to her?
Why is he only home at meal
time (and sometimes not that)?
Why does he not ask his wife to
go with him just once in a while?
Why does he never think of his
Why does he impose on his wife,
when he feels sorry for some other
Does a man know how a wife
longs for that kiss and kind word he
Does a husband know how a wife
longs to go and be with him?
Should a wife know a man's busi
ness doilings? Should a man have
all the say about what he shall buy
Should a man keep all his busi
ness affairs from a wife?
Why dees a man never think cf the
pleasures of a wife?
Whv does a man tell his wife she
isn't like some other man's wife?
Does he think a wife has no heart
or any feelings, when her heart is
Isn't that the real reason so many
women go wrong?
I am a wife and mother and have
tried to live a clean and pure life,
but I am tempted, yes. tempted,
sometimes when I am left alone to
seek other company.
IKes a man ever think his wife
longs for a joy ride and a kind word
or a kiss onceina while?"
Many of these are pertinent ques
tions and which affect the family sta
bility and a solution of these will
avoid many an unfortunate agree
