DEAR ABBY: My fiance, “Rick,” and I have been together for years and recently got engaged. We are over the moon about it, and genuinely in love. However, this exciting time in our lives has been met with some difficulties. We recently learned Rick’s mother has been having an affair, which makes...
I feel like I’ve had a total information overload this week thanks to the one-two punch of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) being held in the same week. First, at WWDC Apple once again announced a series of incremental updates to their...

DEAR ABBY: I’m a widow and have been seeing someone for two years. He often stays at my home. He treats me well, but we have different tastes in furnishings. He brings me trinkets and tacky accessories from his home that I do not display. My spare bedroom closet is filled with these unwanted items...
