Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: A foreign friend used the “n” word while commenting about an employee at a hotel we were staying in. After he said it a second time, I slapped him and told him that word was never acceptable, regardless of the reason. I feel bad about hitting him, but entirely justified in motive and...
DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend, “Allison,” for two years, but lately there have been frequent rough patches. I’m 18 and a college student. I love Allison, but the relationship is taking a toll on us physically and emotionally. We have had to deal with separation ever...
DEAR ABBY: When purchasing concert tickets online for others, when should you expect reimbursement? I say the charge hits your credit card immediately, and so should the payment you’ve advanced for that person. My husband thinks it should be when the tickets are mailed to you — which can take two...
DEAR ABBY: At least “Renee in Oregon” (Sept. 10), who asked her adult daughters for their friends’ phone numbers, cares enough to want someone to call if her adult children don’t respond. I didn’t regard her request as nosy or overbearing, simply so she’d have a “just in case” number. Renee’s...
DEAR ABBY: There is a topic I haven’t seen addressed in your column, namely being sexually abused by a spouse. I ended my marriage because my husband was waking me at 2 a.m. demanding sex. He expected me to have sex only a week after I had our baby, although my doctor had said I should wait six...
DEAR ABBY: My sister-in-law has asked me to pay for repairs to the passenger seat of her car. She was picking up my 9-year-old to stay the night, and when he got inside, he moved the seat forward to better fit his stature. She got upset and said, “The seat was broken. We had it set just right for...
DEAR ABBY: I have been working for four years. I need to work to help my husband financially. However, over the last few months, I’ve felt torn about not being a stay-at-home mom. My grandmother, who is in her 70s, has been taking care of my son full time while I work, but her health isn’t the...
DEAR ABBY: I am 18 and in my sophomore year of college. A month ago, my family went through some major hardships. It came out that “Uncle Mark” has been cheating on my aunt for years and is moving his mistress to our area. They have two children, a son in elementary school and a daughter, “Dana,”...
DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced father who has recently remarried. I have parenting time with my children one weeknight and every other weekend. My children have told me that during the week they prefer doing their homework at their mother’s home. They say that by the time I pick them up, prepare...
DEAR ABBY: “Roger” and I have been seeing each other for two years. (We are both 50.) He is very handsome. We go to movies, ride our bikes together, work out at the gym and attend other events. He calls me every night, sends emails during the day — even calls me when he’s on a break from work....
