    Wife seeks path forward after decades of abuse

    DEAR ABBY: My husband of 30 years has always made me feel like I wasn’t good enough for him.

He has told me four different times […]

I took 10 mg of atorvastatin. I […]

    Couple’s marriage has become a partnership of convenience

    Mother deals with fallout from decision made years ago

    DEAR ABBY: Fifteen years ago, I “ran away from home” to get away from my adult children, and I finally made a life for myself. They were able to stay in the house because I continued to pay the mortgage. Their dad — my ex — and his family all lived nearby. Now, none of […]
