Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My beloved father passed away three years ago. One of my older sisters moved in with Mom to help take care of her and be her companion. My sister has a boyfriend my father absolutely disliked, and the rest of our family doesn’t like him either. My issue (and I’m not the only family...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and his sister had a rough childhood in foster care. Long story short, they lost contact for 10 years — until now. She found us on Facebook and was desperate to know if she had found her brother or not. My husband ignored her. He isn’t sure he ever wants to rebuild a...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been together for eight years. When we first met, I was in the military and she was a bartender. Needless to say, she made far more money than I did at the time. Six months into our relationship, she got pregnant and quit her job. For the next seven years she raised...
DEAR ABBY: I am in shock. My grown son, “Ryan,” recently told me he was molested by his late father when he was a young boy. I had no idea, but I believe him. Ryan is an only child and has recently started seeing a counselor. I loved my husband very much and I believed he loved me, but I no...

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Pete,” is an only child. His mom, who was married, had an affair with a married man, which resulted in his birth. His mother’s husband put his name on the birth certificate, but as a kid, Pete had contact from time to time with his biological father. Both dads have since...
DEAR ABBY: We have been attending the weddings of our friends’ children and work colleagues. We enjoy them, but we have noticed a change in some of the traditions. The best man’s and maid of honor’s toasts to the bride and groom seem to have devolved into telling stories about their past...
DEAR ABBY: I know you provide a booklet to help teens with questions about sex. But when should I talk to my son or give him a copy? He will turn 9 soon. I know that is young, but kids today are exposed to so much so early. — KRISTEN IN MARYLAND DEAR KRISTEN: You’re absolutely right; they are....
