DEAR ABBY: This will be neither short nor sweet as I have a lot to tell. I am a young woman, 40. I married a serviceman at 19. We have two sons. After 21 years, my husband wants a divorce. (He has somebody else.) Abby, military life is all I have ever known. I have never worked and wouldn't know what kind of job I could get or hold. I gave this man my life and now he wants to give it back to me—in pieces. Mine was one of those "have to" weddings, but I have tried so hard to be a good wife and mother. There was never much love on his side. He looked on me and the boys as a "responsibility." Now, after 21 years I am alone with the boys. One is going into the service soon. I am now living with my parents. I can't afford to send the boys to college, or even to a trade school. My husband makes 313,000 a year. He retires next year on $600 a month, plus a 515,000 a year job. We have about $9,000 savings, plus his insurance. I don't know which way to turn. I am going to try to see my husband and talk to him. If he refuses, I '11 get myself a motel room and take my bottle of pills. Then my husband will have to take care of my boys. What else is there for me to do? BROKE, HEARTBROKEN AND ALONE DEAR B R O K E : If you haven't seen a lawyer — SEE ONE - If you don't know a lawyer, get in touch with our State Bar Association. Or call your local LEGAL AID SOCIETY. They will provide you with a competent attorney at no cost to you if you are "broke." You and your sons will be provided for in accordance with your husband's means. The Law will see to that. Aral if there is a SUICIDE PREVENTION CENTER in your area, call them. They have trained personnel who converse with "brokenhearted and lonely" people by the hundreds. It's not possible to ascertain how many lives they have actually saved, but I'm sure they have saved many. Good luck. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for a year to a most wonderful man. We are both young, and my husband makes a very good living. We have a comfortable home and a reasonable amount of money saved. My problem is this: My husband gets furious every time I look in his billfold. I have looked in it several times when he has been in the shower, and when he catches me he a^ost goes berserk. What do you suppose he has to hide? NO NAME, PLEASE DEAR NO NAME: I don't HOUSECLEANED FEEDERS WELCOME WINTER BIRDS. This is the time to get bird feeders ready for their winter visitors. Wash the removable parts in a pail of hot soap or detergent suds, using an old toothbrush to work thick lather into crevices. Then rinse, drain dry, and reassemble the pieces.
