Dear Abby | Counseling can’t save marriage lacking intimacy

Dear Abby: I have been married for almost three years to a woman who refuses to share the same bed with me. It started on our honeymoon when, after having sex, she chose to sleep in a different bed whenever there were two beds in the room.

The ride of their lives

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s easy to compare romance to a roller coaster, with heart-racing highs, plunging lows and unexpected twists.

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

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.

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.

Online dating survey: Politics changing the game
