Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My wife recently started a new yoga class she really likes. But I made the mistake of telling her that the instructor and I had dated briefly (had sex) when we were around 15. I am 50 now and my wife is 45. I was a promiscuous drunk when I was in high school and college. I have been...
DEAR ABBY: We have owned our house for 31 years and raised our kids here. They are grown now and have moved out. Several families across the street have come and gone. The most recent owners have two kids, one in kindergarten and another in first grade. Every morning before school, the mom lets...
DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband is coming to our small town to celebrate our daughter’s graduation. He is bringing along his parents. I’m happy they are coming to show love and support for our daughter; however, his mother has dementia. She’s difficult to deal with now, and my ex doesn’t manage the...
DEAR ABBY: I’m in a second marriage, which was only for the benefit of insurance so my husband could get insurance through my employer’s plan. We were together for many years before getting married. He received the health care he needed, and I’m ready to move forward with my life as a single...
DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Rita,” and I separated a year ago. Our divorce is pending. The man she’s seeing, whom I believe she was cheating with before we split, has a violent criminal past. He has already cheated on Rita with his ex-girlfriend, the woman who had him locked up in the first place. Rita...
DEAR ABBY: I was divorced three years ago, and recently went on some dating sites to find a possible companion. All the women I met had posted photos that looked nothing like them. It was embarrassing. You usually meet in a public place, so the gentlemanly thing to do is continue the encounter,...
DEAR ABBY: My former spouse and I are divorced and share a 3-year-old daughter. Soon after the baby was born, my ex came out as transgender and now lives as a woman. I have always been supportive of her transition, adopting her new name, feminine pronouns, etc., but now she wants something I’m...
DEAR ABBY: I work as a runner in a law firm, which means I do pickups, make deliveries and do any other out-of-office tasks the lawyers or other staff need. Part of my job involves picking up lunch for the office. Sometimes the office manager will give me cash from the firm account to pay, other...
DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and about to graduate from college. I have lived at home these last four years partly because my dad didn’t want me to go away. He never said it, but he made up reasons to make me stay at home. I was 17 and being manipulated and controlled. I tried to explain to him that I...
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...
