Dear Abby

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...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married 10 years, and he treats my family and friends very different compared to how he treats his own. A few months ago, my sister called me at 9 p.m. She was driving through on her way to Florida with her 7-year-old daughter and had been trying for an hour...
DEAR ABBY: I have a close friend, “Samantha,” whom I met in law school four years ago. We both graduated in 2014. I have passed the bar exam, and so have all our friends from school, but Samantha has not. She was in a bad relationship back in school and planned to marry the guy. That fell apart...
DEAR ABBY: My fiance, “David,” and I are getting married soon. We have been living together and engaged for a year, and together eight years. It takes him forever to get things done around the house or buy things we need. I have tried lists and constant reminders. David recently lost his job and...
DEAR ABBY: My best friend, “Ann,” abruptly ended our friendship seven years ago and I still can’t get over it. We were friends from the time we were in first grade until we were 48. We were inseparable as children; she was the maid of honor in my wedding; and though we’ve lived 3,000 miles apart...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for almost five years, and my husband and I recently decided to try to have a baby. I am really excited about the possibility of being a mom. My problem is, my parents and his parents don’t want to be grandparents. I will be 30 this year, and they keep telling me I...
