HOW FOUR FINE. TYPES OF WORKING GIRLS
REGARD "HUSBAND PROBLEM"
ART STORE GIRL . ,
I wouldn't care to. marry an old
bachelor but I would want my hus
band to be enough older than I for
me to profit by his experience.
. , He would have to ask me to marry
him. I don't believe in girls doing the
proposing. If the. man didn't have
enough get tip to do tiiat I wouldn't
have him for a husband.
I am not looking for wealth. What
I went is a good home and a 'man
who can support me decently. I hope
I .would not have to work outside the
home. " ' "
I like dances and parties and would
like to have my husband take me but
a great deal during the first years of
married life. Then I would be con
tented to settle down in home life,
for I think every wife should raise a
family of at least three children.
I would have no use for a man
who tried to make me do things. I
would much prefer to be ruled by
love instead of forced No "cave man",
I would like a man for a husband
who is several years older than I am.
He would be more settled in his ways
and would be more certain that he
wanted me than a younger man, who
would lack experience and resolution
in making a decision. The older man
wouldn't be as fickle. He would know
what to do if. perplexing problems
I hope the man I marry will have
lots of money. While I don't consider
money absolutely .necessary to hap
piness, a person could get a lot of
satisfaction out of having plenty.
I like the type of a man who com
pels a girl with his will power the
kind of a man who kidnaps the girl
of his choice and carrtte her away
