Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband and I have been divorced for three years and share custody of our 10-year-old daughter, who lives with me full time. Her father lives out of state and sees her during the summer months. Last year my daughter had an incident (an “I’ll show you mine, you show me yours”...
DEAR ABBY: I’m responding to “Wallowing in the North” (June 16), who has had a wonderful life and has accomplished all the goals he set out for himself at age 56, but now feels no “spark” to carry on. Abby, he’s in a unique position to help someone else who hasn’t had all those advantages in life...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 45 years. My husband and I get along fine. We each have our little quirks, but after all these years, we are used to each other. There is just one thing that really bugs me about him. When repairs need to be done outside the house, we have it done — new roof, new...
DEAR ABBY: My 15-year-old granddaughter is an emotional eater and has gained a lot of weight. When she was quite young, her mother walked out, and that rejection, combined with her dad laying a lot of the household responsibility on her, makes her anxious and depressed. Her dad isn’t great with...
DEAR ABBY: I met this guy through a dating site. We began chatting and hit it off. We talk almost every day, and have Skyped a few times. We’ve been getting closer and closer. I really like him, and he has told me he feels the same. The thing is, I’m not sure if he’s telling me the truth. We...
DEAR ABBY: My husband is a nice guy, but he’s not particularly good at planning ahead. This means that special events, holidays and birthdays often go unmarked because he doesn’t remember in time to get something sent. In my parents’ marriage, all family communications fell to my mom. It was her...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together 21 years, married for 17. We recently did a short sale on our home and moved to Texas. It was a professional move for my husband. At first I was wowed; then I grew homesick for my family, my job and my friends. My husband was not supportive of my...
DEAR ABBY: Last year I had a baby with one of my college professors. He left me 10 days before our daughter was born and has never met her. I chased him through family court, and he gives me the bare minimum in state-ordered support. Recently, I spotted him advertising himself on a dating...
DEAR ABBY: My sister “Eileen” is married to her second husband, a man I’ll call Harry. He’s nice, but some of his choices landed him in jail for a while. I’m polite when we see him, but I don’t trust him. Eileen and Harry live beyond their means. They rent a large house and buy luxury cars...
DEAR ABBY: I’m in my early 20s, and my 18-year-old sister, “Judy,” is attending community college. All my memories of her consist of her putting me down. We reconciled just as I was moving out. Abby, she is extremely dependent on the family. She cannot do for herself. If I refuse to help her, I...
