I am a man who firmly believes the wife does not have the right. Taking into consideration the wife is healthy, no home ought to be without children. It is a mans fondest dream to have little ones clustering around him and he gets married with that thought in mind. Rudolph Valentino is going through the same thing with a wife who has a liberal attitude and is denying her husband a right. Why did they get married in the first place? Did she promise one thing and when things did not go her way instead of being a woman and trying to keep the marriage she is selfish and leaves. However, I am not an advocate of large families. Three to four children are too much and keep the mother busy with attending their wants and needs which will take priority over the husband and then the husband feeling neglected will seek comfort elsewhere. Moreover, no woman that marries wishes to be childless. A woman to the other effect is not worthy of the name. When a man marries he tries to make his wife comfortable as his means allow. In return, she is expected to keep her home and children neat and clean. The woman was created for man and through her mankind has flourished. The laws of the universe have given power to woman, no one has taken it from and it stands to reason she still holds the place as “Mother of Men”. Besides the blessing of the home, a little child is the greatest link of the human heart and passions. It ties the heart strings of the mother and father in its tiny hands and coos the blessings of a great love upon them. The early years of care are more than repaid when the child has grown. No wife has the right to deny her husband children and no wife will deny them to her mate for it is her greatest and dearest wish to be deserving of the mother.

To the Marriage Editor,
A wife has the right to deny her husband if he’s a drunkard and a beast who does not have a job that is supportive to his family. Why bring a child in the world when they cannot afford to. I believe in years to come this will become something that will become more of an issue as basic cost of food and essentials continues to rise. Also, let me tell you this world, is past being old-fashioned and it will never be again. The boys and girls now marrying are not flappers that is so outdated. If a man loves a woman enough to marry her again, he needs to be able to afford it. I know not everyone loves kids but have a pity on the mother she is not a truck horse.

To the Marriage Editor,
Having been a long time reader I am very much interested in the Marriage Column, I wish to say a few things in regards to the new subject that is before the readers. I think probably in the beginning of the world God intended every woman to become a mother, but as the world stands today there is a limit even in motherhood. In the first place, no many has any business with a wife and prospective parent unless he is able to care for them in a comfortable way. Under circumstances a small family is an absolute necesssity in the cycle of life. I think three or four children born of healthy parents is perfectly fine. As long as the man is a provider and can well support, educate, feed and clothe all members in these times of high prices, and a mother should not be compelled to seek work outside of the home to help care for the family. If she overtaxes her strength mentally or physically by outside work. I may say if there is a loving kind husband and again, able to financially provide it is most assuredly a wifes duty to grant her husband the children if they so desire.
A Constant Reader.
In the life events leading up to Valentino’s divorce, I found a newspaper contest which people provide an opinion on whether a wife has the right to deny her husband children. Valentino longed for the love of family that was not meant to be. In the 1920’s, there was published opinions by some with 21st Century attitudes about being able to afford a family and the defined roles of a nuclear family. Valentino and Rambova had their reasons for marriage and went into this with their own version of what this would look like. I see Rambova using her husband and his fame to further her own intentions. While Valentino used his wife as a means of furthering his own career. She had the inside connections and was knowledgeable on what it took to be a star. For someone who wanted so badly to succeed he did what it took to survive. Did they truly loved each other? I think they loved each other when they lived together in a bungalow on Sunset Blvd where happiness existed in the simple things in life and away from the bright lights of Hollywood. Then the lights were brighter and beckoned and life for both was never the same.
