posted: 10/15/2017 2:03 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Divorcing mom eager to move on puts kids in awkward spot

posted: 10/14/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Please help with some advice regarding my children. My almost-ex-wife filed for divorce while asking me to "work on myself." She refused counseling despite our 17 years of marriage and two children, ages 12 and 10. While I was out of our family home -- at her request -- she was dating a married (unemployed) man who has a child of his own. Our daughter eventually told me what was going on, which was very hard for her.

DEAR ABBY: Clerk gets lesson in privacy from owner of a service dog

posted: 10/13/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Yesterday I was in a retail store with my service dog. The clerk asked me what kind of service dog she was and I replied, "She's my service dog." She kept pressing me as to exactly why I have one, so I asked her if she was inquiring about my disability. When she said, "Yes," I politely informed her that federal HIPAA laws protect my right to privacy. She then said -- loud enough for everyone in the store to hear -- "I don't know what the big deal is. I just want to know what the dog does for you."

posted: 10/06/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Suggesting that an older couple ("Upset in Washington," June 13) move to a community for people over age 55 because they're bothered by the neighbors' children playing outside early in the morning is just one more example of how we have ended up living in a world of intolerance and division.
