Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I’ve always been a self-sufficient woman. I grew up in an abusive household, moved out at 16, and cut off contact with my family a couple of years later when it became apparent nothing would change. Nine months ago, my husband walked out on me and our 3-year-old son. He has no...
DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law recently moved close to us. She has a nice home and has lots of friends in the area, but she doesn’t want any of them to come visit. Abby, her entire focus is on us! She walks right into our home, although she has been asked several times not to. She goes through my...
DEAR ABBY: My friend recently had a baby and could really use my daughter’s old clothes, as our girls are only a year apart and I have saved practically everything. But it will cost a considerable amount to ship several boxes, and I could use the extra money myself if I sold the clothes at a tag...
DEAR ABBY: Could you explain to me why, as a species, men are so blind and stupid? There are millions of smart, funny, sweet, attractive — even sexy — eligible women to whom men do not give a second glance, or even acknowledge that these wonderful women exist. Then, these clueless guys moan about...
DEAR ABBY: I have been with my husband for 12 years, married for three. I had an affair a little over a year ago that he found out about. He has let me back into the house, but he demeans my character at every opportunity. I don’t fight back because I know I am the cause of his pain. We have a 3...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together off and on for more than two years. We have been in a long-distance relationship the entire time. I live in California, and he lives in the Midwest. I’ve been trying to get him out here because I have a job I love, and he could easily get a job in...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married 11 years, but together for 15. We’ve had our ups and downs as normal couples do, but lately it seems like everything she does, I try and find something to nitpick and argue over. In fact, I kind of enjoy it. There was a recent misunderstanding that led...
DEAR READERS: Today marks the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I. In commemoration, I’m mentioning a special initiative to save America’s war letters. Almost 20 years ago I wrote about a historian, Andy Carroll, who had launched a project to seek out and preserve war-related...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for three years. We are both retired. Five months after the wedding, my husband let me know that he wasn’t interested in having sex anymore. We no longer share a bedroom. He’s overweight, not in the best of health, and refuses to change his diet or exercise. I feel...
DEAR ABBY: My daughter is graduating from high school in May. She has been accepted to a prestigious university, entirely due to her own hard work and dedication. My father-in-law recently informed us that his new wife had selected our daughter’s graduation present, and they are excited to give...
