"I am engaged to a young lady who at one time I thought! loved very dearly. A more ex tended acquaintance, however, shows me that a marriage with her would prove uuhappy and miserable to us both. She will not release me, and threatens me with a suit of "breach of promise." Must I marry her and make both our lives unhappy or be mulcted in damages ? If she will not release me. is there any way by which I can free myself from her ? 2. What is the stat ute of limitations in cases of this kind, and would leaving the State benefit me ? If I had no proper ty, could she imprison me, and for how long and at whose ex pense, the State's or her own ?" A. H. L. The editor made the following philosophic response: 1. "There is little excuse for the trouble you have occasioned, because of your negligence and lack of ordinary prudence, and therefore, there can be no sym pathy for you in your predica ment You might do Well to weigh all the circumstances and ascertain whether or not you would be unhappy with the lady after marriage. Many persons learn to love after entering matri mony. Your friends can give you some good advice on this, especially your parents or spiritual advisor. But should it appear that your marriage must prove inevitably unhappy, you had better make other arrange ments, and certainly the friends of the young lady would urge the breaking of the engagement. But even then you have commit ted an almost irreparable injury to the young lady, one hardly to be compensated in money. Let there be a confab in this event between your lawyers and her family counsel, and rest content to pay a very large sum, accord ing to your means, to right the wrong. 2. The statute of limi tations run three years, and you may be sued in another State, as well as this, and limitations only will run. in case you have but yourself out of the reach, from the time you are discoye red.
