HUSBAND TOO GOOD
AND HIS WIFE COULD NOT LIVE
UP TO HIM J
The Contemplation of His Virtues Was
Too Much for Her, and She Had to
Take the Rest Cure, So She Deserted
Her Better Half
A woman somewhere.- declares • that
she left her husband because he \.as
too good. Well, well, there are all sorts
of reasons for leaving a man, but I- am
perfectly. safe in . saying : that '■ this * one
has an air of novelty. - We, all know
the: are many men good enough,^ but
a man too - good \is something \ new in
an age that is accustomed to novelties.;
Of course a v.oman would riot know
exactly how to live 'up to a man who
was too good, and. she should not be
blamed if this condition•• of;affairs: got
upon "> her nerves . and she * resolved •to
spare herself the humiliation of ;'the'
painful contrast between his - extreme
virtue and . her mediocrity. A man
should not be too good.without giving
some kind of warning. No woman can
be "blamed for saying, "this is, so sud
den." under the circumstances.
Now there is certainly.not a married
• woman anywhere who does I not : want
her husband to be good, but .the ques
tijn is whether there is not a limit to
the goodness of husbands. The shock
of knowing that one's husband is too
goodj might be fatal: He should, of
course, be as good as he could, but be
in.^ better than he was, expected to be
is something that a woman -does not
count upon. As a cause for separation
this seems legitimate.
The strain of living in such rarefied
atmosphere is certainly wearing,'to say
the. least, not to mention the fingers of
scorn pointed at a too-good •: husband,
by a lot of other husbands who would
feel a certain contempt for a man bet-'
ter than themselves. Is.it manly to -he
too good? Is it gentlemanly and. com
patible with that strange honor 1 of a
gentleman which will pay a gambling
—<lebt and .leave the butcher to whistle
for his money? ■' '■■■' . • ;
Is it being a good • husband -to be
better than 'anybody, else? But. all
these abstruse questions will have to
be left for psychologists and other per
sons who make the science of life, a
study. The woman's page • does R riot
pretend to say what should be done to,
a man who is too good, but it would
like to have his. picture and place' it
here for other husbands to.gaze"upon.
For it is no exaggeration to say that I
for one, am painfully ai-.xious to-sec
what a roo-gopd man looks like. His
expression must ,be heavenly.:. The
words which drop from his lips are
precious pearls and "diamonds; he-must
indeed be almost too good .to'be true.
Bui at the same time, having read it
In a newspaper that there was such a
man I am nerfectly certain it is true.
, Perhaps he Is in the campaign. If he
is heaven help him! If he is too good
when he comes out of it. 'then..indeed/
■will I believe that, he is not long for
this mundane sphere. The question
;iguin conies, could'a too-good man.be;
elected? Not if the voters knew he
was too good. Everybody would think
lit just an election story, for the air is
full of them and the worse they, are
the less are they believed.'-"'.
When one considers the possibilities
connected with a husband who is too
good, it gives one pause.... That kind
ofiu husband would never even hint at
wanting the change back from the $10
bill he had given his wife last month
■with which to purchase her entire win
ter wardrobe. The too-good husband
wouldn't say a word about it. Neither
would he ask for the old clothes which
his wife had presented to: the relief
society the day before. Heavens, what
a mac! He will come In the millenium.
Neither will he say that his mother
used to make better corn bread than he
ever sees on .'his table. The too-good
husband will tell his wife every day
how much better wife she is than he
thought it possible for mortal woman
to be; he will stay at home evenings
pleasantly, go to church on Sunday, re
member his Wedding anniversary, and
in divers ways be a husband who is
No wonder his wife felt that a sep
oration for a time, so she could think
him over, might" be well...For there is
a limit to the credulity of the human
mind. an she had reached it. The
consciousness of her own unworthiness
made her long for the rest cure. When
she feels again that she can bear the
sight of his superhuman virtue day by
da- she will probably beg him to take
n • back and like a too-good; mar*, he
will do so. This department extends
it« sympathy and felicitations to:the
woman who was "all unworthy of a
strong man's love," as Bertha Clay
says, and hopes that things may yet
come right. ' "
