Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Paul,” and I have been together for five years. We want to get married, but his mother is Catholic and she doesn’t approve because I am an Alaskan native, which from her perspective makes me a pagan. Paul hasn’t attended church or held any Catholic views for many years...
DEAR ABBY: I have a good friend I have traveled with for many years. The last few years she has been showing increasing signs of confusion and forgetfulness. She has difficulty managing her paperwork for travel and remembering what our plans are for the next day. On the most recent trip she...
DEAR ABBY: My 21-year-old son, “Evan,” recently moved out to be with his girlfriend. They live in a small apartment and cannot afford a lot beyond the basics, including internet. They spend every moment at my house when they are not working. They use our internet, eat our food and drink our...
DEAR ABBY: I have fought obesity all of my adult life, and my weight has yo-yoed over the years. My problem is, when I go to the doctor’s office and I am taken to the exam area, the scale is right out in the open where other patients come and go as well as all the office personnel. Mind you, I...
DEAR ABBY: I’m happily married to the man of my dreams. We met after I had gone through a particularly difficult breakup, and I often credit him with “saving” me. We’ve been together 15 years and have two beautiful children. While we both have professional careers, I also write romance novels as...
DEAR ABBY: I live with my parents and am not fond of children. My father volunteers me to baby-sit my nieces while they are right in front of us and before I have a chance to discuss anything. If I stand up for myself and say no, my father lays a guilt trip on me and tells the kids that their aunt...
DEAR ABBY: I have plans to go to law school in the next two years. I have already taken the entrance exam, and will receive recommendations from two of my college professors. The problem is, my parents are refusing to co-sign for my law school loan. Abby, I’m not asking for money; I’m just...
DEAR ABBY: I read your column and I feel for the people who have problems. I have no worries. Although my life has been far from perfect and no bed of roses, here I am at 95 with no serious physical, spiritual, emotional, family or economic problems. I grew up during the Depression, had...
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...
DEAR ABBY: I’m the mother of two teenagers, ages 13 and 15. I am trying to teach them to do chores and help around the house, but all I get is attitude from them. I try to explain that I didn’t grow up with a dishwasher and I washed all the dishes by hand. Well, now that we have a dishwasher,...
