DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of two years will be attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas. We've never had any issues of infidelity, yet I can't help but feel anxious about his coming trip. I know the scene that exists in Vegas - I'm in my mid-20s and I enjoyed my trips there when I was younger and single.
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for many years, work long schedules, and actually sleep when we go to bed at night. Saturday afternoon, we had "nothin' to do," so I suggested some hanky-panky. We were just getting into it when the phone rang.
DEAR ABBY: Please help with some advice regarding my children. My almost-ex-wife filed for divorce while asking me to "work on myself." She refused counseling despite our 17 years of marriage and two children, ages 12 and 10. While I was out of our family home - at her request - she was dating a married (unemployed) man who has a child of his own. Our daughter eventually told me what was going on.
DEAR ABBY: Recently, I was in a retail store with my service dog. The clerk asked me what kind of service dog she was, and I replied, "She's my service dog." She kept pressing me as to exactly why I have one, so I asked her if she was inquiring
DEAR ABBY: My husband, "Ralph," and I have been married for 30 years. He recently started receiving sexually oriented texts from a male coworker I'll call Mike. What Ralph once read aloud to me, saying, "He's such a goof. Listen to this!" has now become covert reading for him.
DEAR ABBY: Suggesting that an older couple ("Upset in Washington," June 13) move to a community for people over 55 because they're bothered by the neighbors' children playing outside early in the morning is just one more example of how we have ended up living in a world of intolerance and division.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a 55-year-old guy stranded in a tough marriage situation. My wife has had a serious falling-out with her father. After his wife of more than 50 years passed away, he immediately took up with an old flame and dumped his family in favor of his new lady's family.
DEAR ABBY: I am 74, and my wife is 71. We are lonely. All of our friends have died, and we have no relatives in this state. We both have health issues that keep us mostly housebound. We live in our own home and want to continue living here. Our home is in a development consisting of busy families involved in their own lives, or too young to bother with a couple of older people.
