My husband has an extensive sexual history.
I have been dating my boyfriend just over a year.
My husband, “John,” recently returned from his fourth Middle East tour after having been gone for a year. As soon as he got back, his mother invited him and his two sisters on a vacation cruise for a week.
I am an unemployed (and looking) 24-year-old male who is the oldest of four. My three sisters are a 20-year-old who has a part-time job and goes to college, a 14-year-old and a 12-year-old. We all live at home with our physician parents.
My boyfriend is divorced. His ex’s name is tattooed on his arm. Although I don’t like it, I realize that it was long ago and before I came into the picture.
My best friend of 40 years and her boyfriend live several states away from my husband and me. Every winter she and her friend expect to come to our home for a week. We simply can no longer do this.
I’m a man in my mid-30s. For the past couple of years I’ve been in love with my best friend. She doesn’t know how I feel, and I know she doesn’t feel the same way about me. (She calls me the brother she always wanted.) I try hard to fight these feelings so our friendship can continue. Losing her friendship would be devastating.
My mother insists on telling my three youngest children that my husband is not their father.
I have been in a strong relationship with my girlfriend for five years. We are very much in love.
My older sister, “Lily,” is in a biracial marriage and has a son.
My daughter, “Roxanne,” married right out of high school. Eleven years later she finally woke up and realized the man of her dreams was a deadbeat. She has now been divorced as long as she was married, still looking for a good man who will love her and share a future with her.
I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years. The drawback is he’s a workaholic. We have not spent even one day together doing something fun in more than 10 years.
My husband tends to fight dirty, and I don’t know how much more I can take. If we argue about some issue between us, he’ll say something along the lines of, “This is why you have so much trouble with your colleagues at work.” He knows this is a touchy subject, and it upsets me.
I’m 41 with two adult kids and my youngest, who is almost 15.
If you have had a happy 40-year marriage, I think you should let it remain so. OK, so neither of you were angels. “Divorce” the “friend” and let it go.
My best friend and I are middle-aged women.
My son has taken it upon himself to get romantically involved with two different married women.
I have been in a relationship with “Mason” for almost two years. I moved in with him a few months back, and things have been very good between us. I know he’s The One, and I’d marry him right now if he’d ask.
My brother and his girlfriend live together.
My husband has less and less interest in me.
My husband, “Bill,” and I have been happily married for 22 years and have two very active, beautiful children. Our oldest daughter has been playing on a traveling soccer team for the last five years. Bill and I go all over the country to watch her play and have become very close to the head coach, “Marla,” and her family.
My daughter has decided to leave her husband. They have been married for 20 years. She says she hasn’t been happy for several years and that it’s time to take care of herself.
Two years ago, my son and his family moved a couple of hours away.
My mother did something very disrespectful.
When I was a teenager, there were many times when I made things awkward.
My boyfriend and I love each other very much.
There’s this woman I’ve known since I was a child. She’s a Jehovah’s Witness I’ll call Beatrice. She comes by my house every so often to share pamphlets and talk about her religion.
I recently traveled to Germany to help my 19-year-old daughter settle in for her semester of study abroad. I was in tears the entire trip home, not because I was sad to leave her, but because she kept lashing out at me for anything from using a cotton swab to following proper directions exiting the train, to asking simple – but, in her mind, ridiculous – questions.
My fiance is in a group chat with a dozen of his friends.
The wife of “Headed for the Open Road” will never forgive herself if she doesn’t accompany her newly retired husband on his open-road adventures. After working for 40 years and retiring from my third job, my life partner and I went everywhere and did everything together.
I have been in a relationship with a very special man who is five years younger
May I say something about people who call “friends” or others they haven’t talked to recently while they’re driving to an appointment or other errand, only to abruptly end the conversation when the destination is reached? Two people have done this to me recently.
My husband and I are happily married, but have one serious problem.
My wife and I know a couple whose daughter has been our daughter’s playmate since they were 3 months old.
My wife and I have a disagreement about when a person should be allowed to get up from the table. We have an 8-month-old son whom we both want to grow up to have good manners. We know he’ll soon be out of his high chair and become squirmy and not want to stay seated.
She hardly gets five or 10 minutes a month of privacy in her bedroom to pack.
What do you say when a friend’s son has committed a horrific crime? Does one say, “I’m sorry” or “Call me,” or merely pat them on the shoulder and move on? Or, what?
I am in my late 20s and dating a man in his mid-30s whom I am crazy about. We have been dating for a year and are starting to discuss marriage and children. He’s kind, hard-working, gives back to the community, and does everything he can to make me happy.
I’m dating my grammar school and high school sweetheart, “Gary.” We’ve known each other since I was 6.
Give up and move on and you will save yourself, your wife, Jamie and her husband a lot of pain.
I’m a 35-year-old gay man who has been in a serious relationship for five years.
I have been dating “James” for almost a year. Things have been rough for him recently. His depression has led to school attendance issues, but we got through it.
I am married to a great man, but he’s very tight with his money. We found out early in our relationship that we couldn’t have a joint account because it caused so much fighting. We share our bills, but I am broke all the time. I have credit card debt he doesn’t know about.
My “friend” from childhood, “Camille,” has never had my back.
My mother-in-law owns the building my husband and I live in.
My daughter “Scarlet” has a precious 18-month-old baby girl I’ll call Sierra.
I am a 50-year-old woman. I have been married to my husband for 28 years and never cheated.
After 16 years of loyal and dedicated service to my employer, I find myself out of work. Months ago, I needed double knee replacements. I gave him three months’ notice about my surgery, planning to return on June 1. It was a one-girl office; I was responsible for all the administrative duties.
In 1985 I met a lovely divorced lady with two adorable children. The three of us got along well. A year later I married into this family. Until then I had no children of my own.
I’m the proud mom of a wonderful 21-year-old daughter whom I find myself worrying about more and more lately.
