Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My son and I are very close. He joined the Marine Corps (a decision I fully support) and shipped out recently. I had read on a Marine family site that frequent letters from home are encouraged, so I had letters written even before I got his mailing address. I sent off three letters...
DEAR ABBY: Please help with some advice regarding my children. My almost-ex-wife filed for divorce while asking me to “work on myself.” She refused counseling despite our 17 years of marriage and two children, ages 12 and 10. While I was out of our family home — at her request — she was dating a...
DEAR ABBY: I retired after a 40-year career. A friend from work, “Bernie,” is the same age I am (62) but is still working. Six years ago, I had a serious health crisis. Three years ago, Bernie survived a heart attack. Since then, Bernie worries incessantly about dying. He exercises rigorously...
DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Ralph,” and I have been married for 30 years. He recently started receiving sexually oriented texts from a male co-worker I’ll call Mike. What Ralph once read aloud to me saying, “He’s such a goof. Listen to this!” has now become covert reading for him. Ralph and I have...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I just moved in together. We have been a couple for seven years. Until now, we have lived with our parents. I knew moving in would be a struggle for him because he’s very close to his four siblings. Now that we’ve moved in, he calls and video chats with them every day...
DEAR ABBY: I am at that age when most of my friends and colleagues are having children. I suffered a miscarriage (my first pregnancy) a few months ago, and I have been feeling depressed and helpless about the situation. We are seeing a fertility specialist, so I am positive about our chances....
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...
