Dear Abby | Wife’s job at the gym has husband in a sweat

Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married for almost 11 years and have three children. About four years ago my wife cheated on me and left. After a six-week split, we decided we wanted to work things out. Everything was great — until recently, when she got a job working at a busy gym.

Dear Abby | Man drains family savings to fund failing enterprise

Dear Abby: My husband of 23 years, "Gerald," quit his job to start his own law firm. He told me about it only after he had quit. I have tried to be supportive, but seven months down the line, he has spent all our "rainy day" cash and earned only one paycheck. We have two teenagers, one who will be going to college in a year.

Making scarves for Chicagoans

CHICAGO — Peering at the piece of paper, Saleemah Hammadi evaluated the pattern, a scarf with draping fringe. Scrunching her nose, she picked up a knitting needle. Put it down. Shook her head.

Dear Abby | Gifts of liquor to recovering alcoholic are not appreciated

Dear Abby: I recently got my husband back in touch with "Scott," his best friend from adolescence and college. My husband's ex had kept them apart, so this rekindling is extra special and appreciated. I don't want to do anything that would jeopardize it. But Scott's wife makes me very uncomfortable.

Dear Abby | Soon-to-be-blended family is divided over immunizations

Dear Abby: I’m engaged to a wonderful man I have been with for five years. We plan to get married as soon as his house sells and we can move into another home as a family. He has three children; I have four. Our kids get along well enough, and no serious parenting issues have come up yet.

Dear Abby | Stocking up on staples makes family happy for the holidays

Dear Abby: With the holiday shopping season already here, may I suggest another way to look at gift giving? We all want to give the perfect gift to family members. Some gifts can cost a lot of money and some not. I would like people to take a step back and consider who they are buying for.

Dear Abby | Sharing bed with infant can lead to sleep-related death

Dear Abby: While, as you replied to “Sleepy in California” (Sept. 17), some parents do “co-sleep” with their children for the first few months, what you were referring to is actually “bed sharing.” Bed sharing was shown in studies several years ago to be the greatest risk factor for sleep-related deaths in young infants less than 4 months of age.
