Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My only sister has been “borrowing” money from me every month for years. She has a ton of credit card debt and cannot afford to meet her monthly financial obligations. Last year my husband and I paid her property taxes for her so she wouldn’t lose her house. It was over $5,000. She...
DEAR ABBY: After 16 months of casual dating, I married my ex-wife. We met through Facebook. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make the marriage work, and after two years we divorced. That was two years ago. It was my first marriage and her second. I was angry that we couldn’t make it work, and I blamed...
DEAR ABBY: I spent an evening with a guy I’ve been wanting to date for some time. After a few drinks he confided to me that he has a serious heart condition. He said he doesn’t expect to live past age 23 and he could die any day. I don’t know the details of his condition, but I’m sure he...
DEAR ABBY: I am not a hugger. In fact, I pretty much always hate it. But people think I’m rude when I don’t open my arms to hug after they’ve opened theirs. And they also think I’m rude when I tell them I’m not really a hugger. It happens with friends, fellow church congregants and audience...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a teenage girl who has always heard and seen on TV and in movies that there’s pressure from guys to have sex. That may be true, but I feel there is also pressure from society. I never thought I would feel like that when I got to high school, but now I do. It hurts, and I am writing...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I argue more than I’d like. I am pretty easygoing and passive; he likes his feelings to be known. Over time I have become worn down, and my patience has worn thin. We are starting to rebound from what I call “the year from hell.” His drinking and poor choices nearly put...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 17 and so is my boyfriend. He is an only child, and all throughout his life, his parents have put a lot of pressure on him. Recently, they’ve been talking about him getting into an honors program in a college. Abby, his parents act like if he doesn’t get in, they won’t be proud of...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 22. Ever since I was 8, I’ve had the best friend I could ever have asked for. “Kylie” stood up for me when I was bullied as a child and hung out with me when I had no other friends. The problem is, Kylie is extremely pretty and has always been charismatic, too. It’s not her fault...
DEAR ABBY: I’m almost an adult now, starting to think about having children and a good marriage of my own. But I have a disturbing childhood memory I have never been able to erase. When I was 6 or 7 and staying at my grandparents’ house, and my grandmother would go outside to check the mail or...
DEAR ABBY: Six months ago, I asked a close female friend to help me prepare a gift for my husband for our fifth wedding anniversary. I wanted to create a photo album of sexy nude photos of myself. Her excellent camerawork provided me with a wonderful collection, and my husband loved it. I...
