Dear Abby | Family resents boyfriend for usurping dad’s chair

Dear Abby: My beloved father passed away three years ago. One of my older sisters moved in with Mom to help take care of her and be her companion. My sister has a boyfriend my father absolutely disliked, and the rest of our family doesn’t like him either.

Dear Abby | Husband wants long-lost sister to remain that way

Dear Abby: My husband and his sister had a rough childhood in foster care. Long story short, they lost contact for 10 years — until now. She found us on Facebook and was desperate to know if she had found her brother or not. My husband ignored her. He isn’t sure he ever wants to rebuild a relationship with her.

Dear Abby | Wife joining the workforce wants her own bank account

Dear Abby: My wife and I have been together for eight years. When we first met, I was in the military and she was a bartender. Needless to say, she made far more money than I did at the time. Six months into our relationship, she got pregnant and quit her job. For the next seven years she raised our children and went to school while I did whatever I had to do — working two jobs — to make enough to pay the bills.

Dear Abby | Man is miffed when woman is older than she advertised

Dear Abby: I am a 58-year-old man who has been meeting women online for a few years. I recently met “Molly,” whose profile said she was 60. We dated several times and then she spent a few days at my house. Certain things she said made me suspect she was older. So I looked her name up online and found out she was seven years older than she had advertised.
