Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am in an interracial relationship with a guy whose parents don’t support our being together because I’m from a different race and culture than he is. Our countries of origin were antagonistic in the past. When his parents tell him to break off relations with me, he listens patiently...
DEAR ABBY: I am married to a great guy. We’ve been together 27 years, so I know him well. He recently stopped smoking after 30 years of nicotine addiction. He did it cold turkey, and he’s been smoke-free for three months now. I’m proud of him and tell him so. The problem is, when he drinks he...
DEAR ABBY: I had a baby girl with my longtime best friend, “Adam.” “April” is now 3 weeks old. I thought everything would be OK as co-parents because, even though we’re not together, we get along and almost never fight. Six weeks before April was born, Adam began seeing a girl we both knew from...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I met four years ago, have been married for two and I still haven’t met her mother. My mother-in-law, a homophobic, self-proclaimed “evangelist prophet,” refuses to acknowledge our union. Her behavior upsets my wife, which angers me to the point that I have no desire to...
DEAR ABBY: My 22-year-old son is going to visit his father and get his third tattoo. I don’t like it, but I can’t control my son. He’s an adult. His father is retired and lives on his wife’s pension. It is my understanding that they are wealthy. My concern is for our 14-year-old daughter. My ex...
DEAR ABBY: I’m worried about a close friend I have known for about 10 years. She’s well-educated, independent and family-oriented. She has been online dating for quite a while and continually meets guys who have criminal backgrounds. She dated one of them on the down low for two years because...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I work out at the same gym. Over the past several months it has gotten back to me that one of the trainers, “Bob,” has been talking negatively about me to some of the other members. My boyfriend works out with another trainer there, and during his workout, I...
DEAR ABBY: My husband has been so-called friends with a man I’ll call “Roy” for almost 30 years. During the 23 years I have been in the picture, I have noticed their friendship seems one-sided. We hear from Roy only when he’s down on his luck or needs help moving or lifting something. Last year...
DEAR ABBY: I need your advice. I am 41 years old and was adopted at birth. I was raised by an unloving woman who was emotionally, verbally and physically abusive. I persevered, worked hard, and now have a loving husband and a beautiful son. We live a comfortable and peaceful life. My adoptive...
DEAR ABBY: My in-laws live in an apartment above our garage. It wasn’t my idea. It was a compromise with my husband. They now want to move Grandma into a trailer in our backyard! I am totally against it, and have voiced my opinion loudly. My husband is stressed out and isn’t capable of saying...
