Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My sister “Eileen” is married to her second husband, a man I’ll call Harry. He’s nice, but some of his choices landed him in jail for a while. I’m polite when we see him, but I don’t trust him. Eileen and Harry live beyond their means. They rent a large house and buy luxury cars...
DEAR ABBY: I’m in my early 20s, and my 18-year-old sister, “Judy,” is attending community college. All my memories of her consist of her putting me down. We reconciled just as I was moving out. Abby, she is extremely dependent on the family. She cannot do for herself. If I refuse to help her, I...
DEAR ABBY: My husband, daughter and I all have birthdays in the same month. My mother-in-law always sends gifts for me and my daughter, but never to my husband, her son. He tries to shrug it off, but I know it bothers him. In earlier years, I thought it was an oversight. I have tried gentle...
DEAR ABBY: I am single and the mother of a 7-year-old girl. When she was 4, I decided there would be no parade of guys coming in and out of my life, or any at all. I have barely dated, and the few times I have gone out, I never talked about it around her. Over the last two or three years, she...
DEAR ABBY: I’m in my 60s, fit, sexually able and I desire physical relations. My wife, because of health issues, is no longer interested in sex. In fact, it would be at least mildly painful to her. I recently met a lady my age who is in the same predicament. She has a sexual appetite; her...
DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced and remarried man with two teenage daughters. My ex-wife has custody of my girls one state away. I see them as often as time and the courts allow — two months during the summer, a week during winter break, rotating Thanksgivings, etc. Both of my daughters are failing...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Kevin,” and I have been together for five years and have a 4-year-old son we are crazy about. For the past six months, I have been begging Kevin to have another child. Some days he’s all for it, but then he changes his mind and starts asking me to give him a good reason...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 29-year-old single mother of two small children. My 5-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I’m the only one in my family who has been trained in his care, so I understand the importance of a healthy diet, proper insulin dosage, checking his blood sugar, etc., and that...
DEAR ABBY: I will soon be married 48 years, but it is not much of a marriage. There is no sex, no touching, no kind and compassionate words, only bickering and arguing. I can’t figure out why I’m still here. I have thought about leaving many times. I have written three books, and because of it,...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of two years will be attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas. We’ve never had any issues of infidelity, yet I can’t help but feel anxious about his upcoming trip. I know the scene that exists in Vegas — I’m in my mid-20s and I enjoyed my trips there when I was younger and...
