Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am a bridesmaid for my brother’s upcoming wedding. However, his fiancee is throwing out some crazy mandates for the big day. 1. All family members must wear contact lenses. Glasses will not be allowed because they look ugly in pictures. (Both her mom and my parents wear glasses.)...
DEAR ABBY: Suggesting that an older couple (”Upset in Washington,” June 13) move to a community for people over age 55 because they’re bothered by the neighbors’ children playing outside early in the morning is just one more example of how we have ended up living in a world of intolerance and...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a happily married woman in my 30s. Although we don’t have children yet, many of our friends do. Some of them have boys who are approaching or are already in their early teens. I’m embarrassed to even ask, but what are the best ways to avoid or immediately stop unwanted just-...
DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, I married a kind, hard-working man I’ll call Travis. These two years have been the best of my life, and I couldn’t imagine a better husband. However, I just got some news I feel is threatening our marriage. Travis’ friend from childhood, “Bethany,” wants to start a...
DEAR ABBY: I am in a long-distance relationship with a man who lives halfway across the country. Because he’s very wealthy, he arranges for all the airfare. I am a single mother and I have limited finances. “Bruce” owns a successful business and, through his business, racks up millions of credit...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 55-year-old guy stranded in a tough marriage situation. My wife has had a serious falling-out with her father. After his wife of more than 50 years passed away, he immediately took up with an old flame and dumped his family in favor of his new lady’s family. My wife now treats...
DEAR ABBY: About 12 years ago, I made a terrible mistake and had an affair. My husband loved me enough to forgive me, and our marriage has been fine ever since. The problem is, I can’t forgive myself. I hate myself! I could have lost everything, including our two kids. I think of all the time I...
DEAR ABBY: I got pregnant very young and married the father. It was in the ‘60s and things were very different then. I didn’t realize my husband simply did not like children. I attributed it to his being in the Marines, a Vietnam vet, etc. We had never heard of PTSD, but he probably had it. We...
DEAR ABBY: My son and his live-in girlfriend were expecting a baby. My daughter planned the shower, and it was a wonderful eight months of excitement. I was included in the ultrasounds and all information, and we were all anticipating the big day. Two weeks before the baby was due, my son showed...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 17 years to the love of my life. I met her 40 years ago while we were growing up in the same neighborhood. Last year she decided our marriage is over. Nine years into our marriage, I became an alcoholic. Try as I might, I couldn’t find a way to stop drinking....
