Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost eight months. We love each other and talk often about marriage, family, etc. The other night — just for fun — I looked online at rings and showed my mom a few I really loved. She quickly dismissed all of them, and started telling me how I...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 50-something single man living with my elderly mother. My father passed away a while ago, and the only members of my family left are me, my mom and my older sister, who has a 27-year-old son, “Jeff.” They do not live with us. My sister has been divorced for 10 years. Jeff and...
DEAR ABBY: My husband drinks a lot. When he does, his personality changes to the point that I don’t want to be around him. He’s aware of this, but he continues to drink. Recently I caught him sneaking alcohol, so I hid the bottle. When he realized what I had done, he retaliated by letting our...
DEAR ABBY: My mother has a tight circle of friends she socializes with often. They are all retired with grown children and grandchildren and eager to share every bit of news of their lives. Mom talks nonstop about her friends’ children’s parenting challenges, marital squabbles and medical issues....

DEAR ABBY: I’m afraid something is wrong with my younger brother. He’s just turned 13, and he’s become violent and angry. Before, he used to tease me and our sister once in a while, but now it’s becoming an everyday thing. If we tease him back, he gets mad and starts yelling. He directs most of...
DEAR ABBY: My husband recently retired from the military. We have four school-aged children. The youngest is starting kindergarten, and I would like to go back to work and finally use my college degree. My husband wants to take a job overseas, but I would likely be unable to work due to the...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years. I moved in with him about a year ago. He has a 9-year-old son, “Todd,” who stays with us every other week. Todd is a great kid, but he has a genetic disorder and still often wets his bed. When it happens, he changes his pajamas and...
DEAR ABBY: My husband of five years has confessed to affairs that resulted in two children. I suspected that something was up when after a year of marriage he seemed distant. Despite our almost 15-year age difference, I never in a million years thought he would do something like this. A few...
DEAR ABBY: You would be doing millions of women a great service by telling them about Knitted Knockers Support Foundation. It has been tirelessly working at inspiring volunteer knitters and crocheters to provide FREE soft, light prostheses for breast cancer survivors. Typically, the traditional...
