Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My twin sister and I were raised by a single mom. Because Mom received welfare benefits, she was required to list “potential” fathers in order to receive aid. After a time, the state required paternity tests be given to the men she had listed, so we had no idea who our biological father...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old woman, married for 50 years, and I hate my husband. He wants to go to swinger parties and toss me to other men. I tried it a couple of times for him and hated it. He is overbearing and rude. We don’t have any friends where we live, so he seeks out new people. He...
DEAR ABBY: I recently realized that my mother-in-law stole several of my prized possessions. It seems that my husband’s brothers, who helped us move when we lost our home, took the items (obviously at her request and with her approval) instead of placing them in the storage unit as instructed. I...
DEAR ABBY: My nephew, “Logan,” is a sophomore in high school. He is a bright, awesome kid who is on the autism spectrum. He is very high-functioning, even on a higher level than Asperger’s. But the social struggles/issues are still there. To this day, my sister refuses to tell Logan about his...
DEAR ABBY: I divorced last year after 14 years of marriage. We have a 10-year-old son together. While staying with his father on weekends, he has overheard his father and new girlfriend having sex. It has happened a couple of times, and each time my son comes home in tears. His father has promised...
DEAR ABBY: I am writing regarding my almost 13-year-old daughter. She’s a sweet girl but lately has been involved in a lot of drama. Recently my husband and I saw what we believe to be two hickeys on her neck, one on each side. She has denied, denied, denied it, but we know what we know. I’m...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 46-year-old woman with PTSD due to a history of physical abuse, mental abuse and incest that I experienced as a child. I’m proud to say that it has not been repeated with my four children. My childhood history has made me want sex only if I am in control or if I am role-playing...
DEAR ABBY: My dad started an affair with a woman who is four years older than I am. He met her when he hired her for her “services.” Fast-forward a year: He has left my mom. Mom left the state and has moved in with me. She’s trying to rebuild her life, but she’s still very much in love with my dad...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 57-year-old male who has been thrust back into the dating scene. I’m financially secure, in good health and have a good career. I’m searching for someone near my age who has similar achievements in life, someone I can communicate with in and out of the bedroom. Simple request,...
DEAR ABBY: I have a problem and no clue how to solve it. I teach in an international primary school in China, and was approached by the father of one of my students. I had given her a “C” in the class. Her father wanted me to change her grade to an “A.” He felt that a “C” was too low a mark, even...
