Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a 13-year-old son, my only child. For the past 10 years I have been living with mounting guilt over the fact that he doesn’t have a sibling. It’s not because my husband and I haven’t tried, we have. But fertility issues took us down an empty road, and adoption...
DEAR ABBY: I am a large, overweight woman. I have been in the process of losing weight for more than five years. I got married three years ago to an amazing guy. He’s the sweetest man I have ever met. Something he said recently really bothers me. He said he thinks I’m fat. While I know I’m fat...
DEAR ABBY: I am a single mother of two biracial daughters ages 2 and 4. They fill my life with joy and I am thankful to be their mother. My problem is, I haven’t been able to face my family members since the birth of my second child. My family has strong Christian roots, and I know they were...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for almost three years to a woman who refuses to share the same bed with me. It started on our honeymoon when, after having sex, she chose to sleep in a different bed whenever there were two beds in the room. She’s in her late 40s and had never been married before...
DEAR ABBY: After two failed marriages, I married a wonderful man whom I love but am not in love with. He recently had a seizure, after which he was diagnosed with moderate dementia. All I see is a long, dark road ahead. We are both senior citizens with not a long time left on this Earth. My...
DEAR ABBY: I am a grandmother and great-grandmother who is concerned about the behavior of my grandson toward his 7-year-old daughter, “Beth,” and her 9-year-old cousin, “Mandy.” When Mandy recently visited me, she told me her uncle crept up behind her, put his hand over her mouth and then held...
DEAR ABBY: My beloved father passed away three years ago. One of my older sisters moved in with Mom to help take care of her and be her companion. My sister has a boyfriend my father absolutely disliked, and the rest of our family doesn’t like him either. My issue (and I’m not the only family...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and his sister had a rough childhood in foster care. Long story short, they lost contact for 10 years — until now. She found us on Facebook and was desperate to know if she had found her brother or not. My husband ignored her. He isn’t sure he ever wants to rebuild a...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been together for eight years. When we first met, I was in the military and she was a bartender. Needless to say, she made far more money than I did at the time. Six months into our relationship, she got pregnant and quit her job. For the next seven years she raised...
DEAR ABBY: I am in shock. My grown son, “Ryan,” recently told me he was molested by his late father when he was a young boy. I had no idea, but I believe him. Ryan is an only child and has recently started seeing a counselor. I loved my husband very much and I believed he loved me, but I no...
