Dear Aon: My son Is 32 years
n'd. nice-looking and has a wonder
ful job. He makes $10,000 a year
and has saved over $10,000 thrt I
But his stinginess is making me
crazy. He refuses to lake cut a
4irl btcaus It costs money. He
von't go to a movie because he
can see it free a few years later
vt TV. His car is seven years old
but he refuses to buy a new one
ireause the one he h?s "gets him
vhere hr's going. " He wrars his
wits till they fall apart. When his
shoe laces break he tiesithem to
gether. According tr him everyone Is
jealous or "after som-thing" so
naturally he has no friends. How
can I get him to see there's more
lo life than living for the dollar?
He thinks you're a smart woman.
Maybe he'll listen to you. Miser's
Dur Mitw's Mothw: Your
ton isn't living ht's axltting,
poor thing. Anvon. who has
such a fix en th. dollar is' tick.
H.'d probably rtUM to get pro
fessional help btcauM it w.uld
cost something. Stop begging
him to let th moths ut of hit
wallet. Instead, remind him oc
casionally that he isn't getting
any younger and suggest soma
worthy charity or a needy rela
tive who ought to be remember
ed in his big fat will.
Dear Ann: I married a divorced
man last year. This was my first
marriage and I'm no kid. I'm frank
to admit I don't care for children
and never did.
My husband has two tren-aec
daughters by his first niarri.:i:n.
He gets custody 8 weeks every
summer. Thry moved in lust
week and I'm a wreck.
To begin with he pays S2r0 a
month support mrncv which m-ars
la healthy slice out of our income.
The girls wear nicer clothes tVn
I do. They are laiy. sleep late
and don't pick up after themselvs.
When Ihey make a bed I have to
make it over. They're a nuisance
in the kitchen becaus they don't
know how to do anything.
I mentioned this to my husband
last night and he gave me a long
icy look and said, "They are MY
daughters and 1 don't want to hear
any complaints against them." Is
this fair lo mo, Ann? TaMered
Dear Tittered: When you mer
ry a divorced man with a family,
you buy the total package step
children, support checks, ex
wife, a man with built-in mem
ories and roo?s elsewhere. These
girls may mean nothing to you
but lest money and more work,
but to your husband they at the
stars in hit crown. If they don't
know how to make a bed or pre
pare a meal, teach them. Don't
pick up after them. Lot them
know in a friendly but firm mm
ner, what's expected and they'll
toe the line. Build bridges with
these girls not fences or you
may find YOU'RE the on on
