DEAR ABBY: Wife whose husband fights dirty may need a clean break

posted: 02/21/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Because I had a promiscuous past prior to getting married, it was understandable that my husband and I have gone through some rough patches. It's been three years since our wedding, and he still can't let it go sometimes. A recent argument just escalated into his calling me a whore and stupid. We have a beautiful little girl together, so it's not like I can just up and go whenever I want.

posted: 02/20/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

Dear Abby: My daughter-in-law is extremely jealous of the close relationship I have with my daughter. If I spend time with my daughter and grandson, she gets mad at me and keeps my grandchildren from me. I need advice on how to handle her. I get her children almost every weekend. I work a full-time job, but she feels like I should have them more. -- Grandma in Georgia

posted: 02/18/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I are getting married in a year. We have some very close gay friends, and I have gay family members on my mom's side. The majority of our family is gay-friendly, but a few of them on my father's side are very open about their dislike of the LGBT community.

posted: 02/17/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

posted: 02/16/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Husband's affair could be more about money than love

posted: 02/15/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I am 68 and my husband is 80. I just found out he is involved with a 40-year-old woman. He says it is not an affair because they haven't actually had sex! I don't know what to do. Can you help me? -- HEARTBROKEN IN NEW MEXICO

DEAR ABBY: Less is more than enough when mom walks in the nude

posted: 02/14/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I am 26 years old, and my mother still walks around naked in front of me with no warning. I've told her several times that it makes me uncomfortable, but she seems not to take me seriously. In her culture (she's not from the U.S.), walking around naked is no problem. But I'm tired of seeing her breasts unexpectedly.

DEAR ABBY: A day of service is one too many for reluctant employees

posted: 02/13/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My boss wants to do a day of community service with the staff to help others and improve relationships in the workplace. I thought it was a great idea; a lot of my co-workers were unsure and wanted more information about what specifically we would do. My boss said she would get more information and send it out to us. However, a few of my co-workers are outright opposed to the idea and think they shouldn't be required to do it.

DEAR ABBY: Dad's first marriage is news to adult child, stirs questions

posted: 02/12/2017 1:54 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My parents have been happily married for more than 30 years. While flipping through an old family album recently, I discovered photos from a wedding many years ago that I had never seen before. Turns out, they were from my father's first wedding. That's when I realized his marriage to my mother was his second.

Dear Abby: Teen in a rut hunts for ways to spice up a boring life

posted: 02/11/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My life is boring, repetitive and I am often depressed. I have trouble talking to others, which makes things harder. Every day is the same: Get up, go to a long day of school, come home, do homework, play video games, draw, go to bed.

DEAR ABBY: Spreading the love makes Valentine's Day a delight

posted: 02/10/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I have never received a romantic Valentine, and that's OK with me. With all the sappy movies on TV and the stores blooming in pink and red, we often forget that St. Valentine wasn't the one in love. (He was a Roman priest who married Christian couples and was killed for his trouble.)

Dear Abby: Playmate spills the beans about the birds and the bees

posted: 02/09/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I had planned to wait until my daughter was 12 and in the sixth grade to teach her about sex. Unfortunately, she was given a very thorough, graphically described education by a playmate. At the time, her playmate was in second grade. My daughter was in the third grade. I was devastated. Not only did I feel she was too young, I felt robbed of an experience that should be cherished between a mother and daughter.

DEAR ABBY: Cutting off her cellphone may bring wayward daughter home

posted: 02/08/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I need advice on how to deal with my 18-year-old daughter. A few months ago she was ready to go to college. Then she met this guy via Snapchat. He's unemployed, lives with a friend who is under house arrest, has a criminal record and has nothing to offer her.

DEAR ABBY: Husband's aggressive driving makes wife a nervous wreck

posted: 02/07/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My husband is a very aggressive driver. He tailgates, cuts people off, narrates "play by play" during driving and stresses me out. He was involved in two accidents that I am convinced were his fault, although one was blamed on the other driver. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.
