DEAR ABBY: Have you any advice for handling nostalgia? While it can be pleasant, lately I have been getting very down when I think about my past. I'm sad that I can never relive those experiences, and I'm wondering what's wrong with my life now that makes me feel this way.

It had been a pretty good spring and summer for us in 2005. Dre and I had our May 7, comedy-of-errors-but-all-was well-that-ended-well wedding in Monroe, La., enjoyed ourselves in Panama City Beach afterward and were going about the business of settling down to a new life as a married couple.

Happy birthday. You like to have "no" people around you because they make you better, stronger and sharper. Every once in a while, you need a "yes" person, too, because your confidence will suffer without such an influence.

Regular readers might recall I recently bought a new necessity from Amazon.com. But they might remember that it wasn't exactly a necessity. Fine, I splurged on a $129 high-tech gadget-thingy just because it seemed cool and it was marked down.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married 22 years, and we had a good marriage until recently. Over the last three years she has become more and more consumed with her phone and tablet. She goes nowhere and does nothing without them.

DEAR ABBY: The wedding night I had dreamed about forever was supposed to be the most romantic and amazing of my life with the one person I can't live without. Instead, it was the most humiliating experience I have ever had.
