Dear Abby | Wife whose husband fights dirty may need a clean break

Dear Abby: Because I had a promiscuous past prior to getting married, it was understandable that my husband and I have gone through some rough patches. It’s been three years since our wedding, and he still can’t let it go sometimes. A recent argument just escalated into his calling me a whore and stupid. We have a beautiful little girl together, so it’s not like I can just up and go whenever I want.

Knot the ‘70s anymore as macrame goes millennial

GIG HARBOR — Disco. Mullet hairstyles. Tight shiny shirts. Some things have stayed in the 1970s, and deservedly so. But macrame is back in a big way, thanks to new materials, boho-loving millennials and creative artists who think way beyond brown jute owls and plant hangers. And the trend that’s been growing from Portland to Sydney is finally hitting Washington’s South Sound.

Fossils show quick rebound of life after ancient mass extinction

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Fossils including sharks, sea reptiles and squid-like creatures dug up in Idaho reveal a marine ecosystem thriving relatively soon after Earth’s worst mass extinction, contradicting the long-held notion life was slow to recover from the calamity.

Dear Abby | Less is more than enough when mom walks in the nude

Dear Abby: I am 26 years old, and my mother still walks around naked in front of me with no warning. I’ve told her several times that it makes me uncomfortable, but she seems not to take me seriously. In her culture (she’s not from the U.S.), walking around naked is no problem. But I’m tired of seeing her breasts unexpectedly.

Dear Abby | Family photo album reveals a surprise in father’s past

Dear Abby: My parents have been happily married for more than 30 years. While flipping through an old family album recently, I discovered photos from a wedding many years ago that I had never seen before. Turns out, they were from my father’s FIRST wedding. That’s when I realized his marriage to my mother was his second wedding.

Nicolino — Chavez

Brianna Chavez of Wenatchee and Andrew Nicolino of East Wenatchee were married Feb. 4 at the Chelan County Courthouse, Wenatchee.

Dear Abby | Spreading the love makes Valentine’s Day a delight

Dear Abby: I have never received a romantic Valentine, and that’s OK with me. With all the sappy movies on TV and the stores blooming in pink and red, we often forget that St. Valentine wasn’t the one in love. (He was a Roman priest who married Christian couples and was killed for his trouble.)
