Pleas to Wait Usually Ignored
CHICAGO—In her syndicated editorial yesterday, Dorothy Dix responded to a letter writer who pleaded for young men and women to wait until the war’s end to be wed. Miss Dix opines these youth do not want to hear about the pitfalls—not the least of which, husbands and wives may meet as strangers after the war—nor do they want to wait for the alter. Miss Dix also states men do not want to face that a woman who has been working “…for good wages may never be willing to go back to a kitchen with no pay envelope on Saturday night.” She concludes that the “…wedding  bells ring merrily along and the divorce court gets ready for a rush business when the war is over.”
