Man Prefers Loveless Marriage to Facing Failure With Divorce

DEAR ABBY: I found a cute story in The Montrose Daily Press:

It was a perfect day, and four students decided to cut classes. Reporting to school later that afternoon, they told their teacher they had a flat tire. To their relief, the teacher smiled and told them to take their seats.

"You missed a test this morning, and I would like you to take it now," the teacher announced. "No discussion allowed among you. Now write the answer to this question: 'Which tire was flat?'" -- BESSIE MAE, NUCLA, COLO.

DEAR BESSIE MAE: Not only was it a "cute" one, it was a new one.
