Birthdays, anniversaries, and bad husbands!

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I adore my longtime boyfriend and the happy life we have built together. There is, however, a recurring issue over which we cyclically disagree: his birthday. While never truly enjoying getting older, I have always enjoyed celebrating my own birthday — what a wonderful excuse to see loved ones and share aContinue reading “Birthdays, anniversaries, and bad husbands!”

Hiding in his wallet…

Dear Annie: I was married 45-plus years when my husband passed away. After being alone for a few years, I married a longtime family friend. His wife had passed away several years earlier. He pursued me and is a good man, and we seem to be happy together. But at times, I do feel likeContinue reading “Hiding in his wallet…”

Loads of commentary tonight!

Dear Annie: I have been with my partner for 10 years. While he was going through his divorce, his mother lived with us. At the time, she had nothing nice to say about his ex-wife. She acted like seeing her was a chore when one of the children graduated high school (I was not allowedContinue reading “Loads of commentary tonight!”

A hodge-podge of interesting advice issues!

DEAR ABBY: I am a 31-year-old woman who has been in many relationships since high school. No engagements, however, although four of the men mentioned they wanted to marry me. I lived with three of them. I’m a former model, have almost completed my second master’s degree and hold a steady government job.

Relationship death and psychics in the produce department.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been together since 2008 and married since 2011. We slept in the same bed, held hands and talked about everything in the beginning. Then, in 2013, he got a job in Iowa. I stayed home until my youngest went to college. I joined him in September 2014. HeContinue reading “Relationship death and psychics in the produce department.”

Meg’s life and Annie Lane today!

I’ve been hibernating, which is restful but not much else. I need to get serious about my goals already. I’ve got a few things going on. On Wednesday, I have to go talk with a state-appointed psychiatrist to convince him I’m still disabled. I’ve been making examples in my head of recent scenarios that makeContinue reading “Meg’s life and Annie Lane today!”

Direct from the mother-in-law.

Dear Annie: Your advice to “Strained Communication” was perfect: “Run, run, as fast as you can.” Our son married a charmer who wanted to get married quickly. She had a great reputation and nice family, but things aren’t always as they seem. Shortly after marriage, we began to see the real person who was extremelyContinue reading “Direct from the mother-in-law.”

The day the relationship died.

Dear Annie: My boyfriend is 48, and I am 39, and we have been together since May 2015. We haven’t made too many public appearances since being together. I have two children, a 12-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl. They love him dearly. He has one child, a 14-year-old girl, who barely communicates with myContinue reading “The day the relationship died.”

Size, and where’s the virtue?

DEAR ABBY: I’ve been dealing with some emotional stress for well over a year. I’ve recently found out my wife’s ex was much more well-endowed than I am. I understand that’s not the most important thing, but it is messing with me mentally. One reason is, a long time ago when she was drunk, sheContinue reading “Size, and where’s the virtue?”
