POST OFFICE BOX 11 - ATLANTA. GEORGIA
Mrs. X.—My husband has been
honorably discharged from the
Navy. He’s been home 4 weeks.
Last week he found a letter that
a young man wrote to me. This
fellow has been trying to get mo
to go out with him on dates before
my husband retuTned but I never
consented to it. The letter he
wrote, he was trying to make me
see where he meant so much to
me. But I don’t care for him but
now my husband believes that I
do and also believes I went out
on dates with him. HOw can I
show him his mistake?
Ans: The one thin gevery ser
viceman has a right to expect and
demand of his wife is that she re
main faithful to him while he is
away. And that means.... that no
flirtations no matter how small Or
how trivial can be encouraged or
condoned. You had no business ac
cepting a letter from this boy even
though you were innocent of any
wrong dnoig. Your husband knows
from the tone of the letter that
you had not been unfaithful. Nev
ertheless, he is disappointed. You
must prove to him by your ac
tions from now on that you are
a model wife and that you were
the victim of circumstances.
