Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for eight years. My ex and I are on civil terms and text each other a few times a week regarding our kids, mutual friends and general chitchat. A few months ago, during a rough patch in my relationship with my girlfriend of three years, “Lily,” I expressed my...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a 22-year-old son who has moved back home due to his relocating. His girlfriend of six months has done some suspicious and devious things. We have tried to overlook them, but the latest involves a car our son asked us to sell her because she was in a bind because...
DEAR ABBY: Mom is 61. She lost her husband (my dad) six months ago. They had been married for 37 years. He used to do almost everything for her. Now her world has changed because she must do things for herself — like doing the dishes or paying the bills. When we talk, she constantly complains...
DEAR ABBY: I have been with my husband for 28 years. During our first year of marriage, I caught him making out with an old classmate of mine. He assured me that it was only that and nothing else, so I decided to work through it. We have five beautiful children now, and I’m not sure why I...
DEAR ABBY: Was I spreading gossip by telling my former husband that our granddaughter’s wedding was off? We had just returned from their engagement party. It is my understanding that one wants to cancel, while the other wants to go through with it.  The wedding is a year away and this has been...
DEAR ABBY: My parents and I live on opposite coasts of the United States. I have visited them many times over the years. I’d like them to visit me, but my mother refuses to travel. (She is healthy and not scared of flying or traveling.) At first, she said she didn’t have the money, so I offered...
DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing “Russell” for about a year. Last March he told me he had to move in with his grandmother because “he was the only bachelor in the family who could take care of her.” Stupidly, I believed him. Not long after that, I found out he had a pregnant girlfriend. I didn’t...
DEAR ABBY: I’m in love with my boyfriend, and we’re about to move to a huge college town. We’ve been dating two years and I want him to be my husband, but at the same time I want to live life. I’m not even 21 yet, and I haven’t experienced life. I want to go to a bar or club and dance with...
DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter, a junior in high school, is still living at home. She has befriended a 51-year-old man at her first job (a burger place). We have told her that although she is kind to be friendly with him at work, we feel it’s inappropriate to do things with him outside of work...
DEAR ABBY: Americans are at their best when they unite around a noble purpose. On Memorial Day, that purpose is the National Moment of Remembrance. On that day, all Americans are asked to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time to honor our fallen. In 1971, No Greater Love, a patriotic...
