Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am turning 40 and have never been married. Lately, on dates, men have started asking me why I’ve never married. It makes me uncomfortable, and I don’t know how to answer them. I have always been attracted to emotionally abusive men and have always been the one to break things off. I...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old girl and I have a boy best friend who is also 14. I liked him the moment I met him, which was exactly a year ago. He says it’s the same for him. We established that we both liked each other months ago, but we’re still only friends. The reason is his parents have a...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married three years. It has been rocky since year two. She’s a great mother to our kids, especially the one who is medically challenged. We have broken up twice so far, and are now back together. However, because of my job, we live in different states. Bottom...
DEAR ABBY: After I became an adult and left home, my father remarried a woman with a grown son. “Jack” has been incarcerated for the past several years. I have only vague information about what he did, but I do know it was related to drugs and gang affiliation. His mother insists he was “framed...
DEAR ABBY: I have always struggled with a lack of self-esteem and confidence. I would like to get breast implants. It’s not to seek attention or anything; it’s merely to feel better about myself. Clothes don’t fit me properly, and I am embarrassed. My boyfriend is completely against it. He says...
DEAR ABBY: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Excited in Maryland” (Aug. 16), whose wife makes snide comments about his impending retirement. That milestone is the biggest, scariest life change people make — a time marker like no other. With many people, our identity is tied to our...
DEAR ABBY: I’m an only child; my husband is not. Our parents don’t live nearby, and every year we have great debates over where to go for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Both sets of parents host both holidays at their homes. My husband feels we should alternate, one year spend Christmas with his...
DEAR ABBY: My heart breaks when jokes are made about older children, especially sons, who still live at home. My son “Nick” has his own area of the house and cares for himself. His rent helps us greatly. My parents also live in another part of the house, and he helps with their needs sometimes....
DEAR ABBY: I made a big mistake three years ago. When I found out my husband was cheating on me, I became vengeful and sought revenge. I ended up sleeping with my sister-in-law’s boyfriend to get back at my husband and at her for some things she did in the past. It took my pain away — for a bit...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 13 and in what I think is a serious relationship with “Josh.” The problem is, his mom thinks I’m “mentally abusing” him. I have never done anything to Josh to make her think that. She and I have had our disagreements and have not spoken for periods of time before, but nothing like...
