My sister and I have a close but complicated relationship.
I've been going out with this guy for a couple of months.
During my teenage years, I was repeatedly raped by my brother.
When my husband and I fight, which isn't really that often, he shuts himself away for several days.
My fiance, “Peter,” has a number of female friends I’m not comfortable with, primarily because they are women he “had” interest in before we started dating.
My girlfriend, "Dyanne," and I recently had a baby conceived not long after we started dating.
A year and a half ago, I separated from my husband because I was being neglected, not respected, and mistreated emotionally.
I need some advice regarding my mother-in-law.
I’m a 38-year-old woman who used to be nice.
