I am a 53-year-old woman who has finally met a kind, decent man after many abusive relationships.
I’m a disabled middle-aged woman, married for 15 years. From the beginning, there was never much passion between my husband and me, but we’re friends.
Remember, that decision was made many years ago. What if you find her and she’s married with children? Would it make you feel better or worse?
Your son’s reaction was immature. He should understand that sometimes circumstances can change.
Dear Abby: I’m frustrated that guests in my home almost never use the guest towels I’ve put out for them in the bathroom. Why do they do this?
Dear Abby: I have been trying to get healthy for years and recently lost a lot of weight.
My 15-year-old daughter, “Jenny,” went to a sleepover with her two best friends from school last Friday, “Penny” and “Ginger.” Penny’s parents went out and left the girls alone.
My 92-year-old mother lives alone, still drives and manages by herself with a feral cat she took in. She’s dealing with heart failure, but doing well on her meds. I am 70, an only child, married, retired and live six hours away.
Dear Abby: My granddaughter is getting married in seven months and I’m worried for her.
Dear Abby: I have been married for seven months, and my husband wants a second wife, something I do not agree with.
