Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Rita,” and I separated a year ago. Our divorce is pending. The man she’s seeing, whom I believe she was cheating with before we split, has a violent criminal past. He has already cheated on Rita with his ex-girlfriend, the woman who had him locked up in the first place. Rita...
DEAR ABBY: I was divorced three years ago, and recently went on some dating sites to find a possible companion. All the women I met had posted photos that looked nothing like them. It was embarrassing. You usually meet in a public place, so the gentlemanly thing to do is continue the encounter,...
DEAR ABBY: My former spouse and I are divorced and share a 3-year-old daughter. Soon after the baby was born, my ex came out as transgender and now lives as a woman. I have always been supportive of her transition, adopting her new name, feminine pronouns, etc., but now she wants something I’m...
DEAR ABBY: I work as a runner in a law firm, which means I do pickups, make deliveries and do any other out-of-office tasks the lawyers or other staff need. Part of my job involves picking up lunch for the office. Sometimes the office manager will give me cash from the firm account to pay, other...
DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and about to graduate from college. I have lived at home these last four years partly because my dad didn’t want me to go away. He never said it, but he made up reasons to make me stay at home. I was 17 and being manipulated and controlled. I tried to explain to him that I...
DEAR ABBY: I’ll be retiring next year. My husband is already retired. When I do, I want to travel in the U.S. and internationally. We are healthy, able to travel and we have the funds to do it. The problem is, my husband isn’t crazy about traveling. He’ll go if I book it, but he fusses the whole...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 36, doing very well in business, single and deeply in love with a 58-year-old woman. She has been a neighbor since I was in grade school. She’s petite, pretty, intelligent, cheerful and looks my age. My parents moved to Florida when I turned 27, and I bought their home just so I...
DEAR ABBY: My mother raised my two nephews because of their parents’ drug addiction. They are now adults (21 and 25). As a result of these circumstances, Mom was never able to be a fun, doting grandmother to her other grandchildren. My nephews needed stability, and I helped often. I lived three...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 40-year-old childless single woman. I spent several years doing various day care jobs and have great love for children, but due to female health issues, I am unable to have my own. I have a great job and home, but cannot afford fertility treatments or adoption, both of which are...
DEAR ABBY: I am a gay man who has been dating a divorced man for nine months. I’m 25 and he is 50. He was married to a woman for more than 20 years and has three children. (I am the age between his middle and oldest children.) We met one day and have never been apart since. It started great. We...
