My husband and I are moving to a retirement community where we won’t know a soul.
I’m a man in my mid-70s, and I’m beginning to understand why some old people are annoying cranks.
I’m watching the slow-motion destruction of a childhood friend on Facebook.
My dad had a heart attack and nearly died a year ago.
I’m a 39-year-old gay male who was in a relationship with a very attractive 44-year-old teacher. He never wanted to commit to a monogamous relationship.
I have been married for 10 years and have two children.
My husband (my second, and I am his third wife) and I just returned from a fantastic trip throughout Asia.
I was a bit shocked when I read about the family who disposed of 17 casseroles they were given while they were grieving the loss of a loved one (“Enough Is Too Much,” July 5).
I am a 47-year-old woman, married to the love of my life for seven years.
