Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My fiance is in the Marine Reserves. He has been in for five years, and his contract is due to end next year. After that, he will either resign or re-enlist. He’s obsessed with the idea of serving his country and deploying. He says he won’t feel like he did his job if he doesn’t...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a male in my early 50s. As a shy 21-year-old, I had minor surgery to straighten a small (but at the time, to me, ginormous) hump on my nose. I didn’t tell many people and it boosted my confidence, and although I can’t say I regret it, looking back I don’t think it was really needed...
DEAR ABBY: After 27 years of marriage, my wife told me she is attracted to other women. To my knowledge, she has acted on this only once. Every day I wonder where our relationship stands. One day she can’t see herself without me; the next, she says we should divorce. I don’t know if I should end...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Four years ago, while waiting for our divorce to be finalized, I decided I’d start dating online and suggested she do the same. We were still friends, so I didn’t think it was crossing any boundaries. My online dating efforts were met with peculiar...
DEAR ABBY: I just read the letter from “Expecting in Canada” (Sept. 8) and am disappointed in her daughters’ reaction to her pregnancy, as were you. My own mother announced she was pregnant with my baby brother when she was 42 and my sister and I were in college. Now, 46 years later, I can say...
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married seven years and have two beautiful children. Overall, the time we have been together has been wonderful, although we do sometimes argue. On more than one occasion, my husband has shared his concern that I am cheating on him. I have never been...
DEAR ABBY: I just had a big fight with my best friend. Her name is “Alex.” There was a lot of cursing. The argument was about her wanting to be transgender. I didn’t agree with it, and she got mad at me. Alex is a tomboy. Today she cut her hair short — too short for my taste — and she keeps...
DEAR ABBY: We recently lost our dog, a 13-year-old springer spaniel, to old age. His passing has left a huge hole in our hearts and lives. We miss his companionship, his personality and the structure that caring for him brought to our lives. We’re 51 and 60, own our home and are financially secure...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Jimmy,” and I have been together for two years. After about four months, out of necessity we moved in together and it was great. Not long afterward I got a job two hours away. Since I moved, we get to see each other only every two or three weeks. The separation has been...
DEAR ABBY: I live in Israel, and for the past five years I’ve been having an affair with a great guy I’ll call Yuri. I married very young to a man who is kind and very Orthodox. I love my children and grandchildren. Yuri thinks we should leave our spouses and make a fresh start. (I’m not...
