I read a question you answered similar to mine and wanted to get your take on my situation. I have a drawer of lacy underwear that I rarely wear. I was going to wear a pair tonight and came across a pair that was not mine. I am sure of it. I wear a "large" [...]

My husband and I have been married for several years now. He wasn't sure he wanted kids when we first started dating, but by the time we got married he said he thought he would probably agree to them at some point. I was pretty sure I wanted at least one, but not 100% sure. [...]

Prior to my engagement, I had a friendly, easy-going relationship with my fiance's (let's call him E) parents. In fact, I was thrilled to have them in my life, since my own parents and I had a rocky relationship until rather recently. Granted, I only saw his parents a few times a year at most, [...]

I have been dating the same guy for 1.5 years. The moment we met, we instantly hit it off. Last month, we got engaged. It was a great engagement for two weeks. Then, the fights started happening, primarily because of our parents fighting about certain things. Last week, we started arguing again (about the same [...]

My wife and I recently found out that my sister organized a surprise birthday party for my mum's and dad's 70th. It was arranged while my wife and I were on our honeymoon, so we missed out on celebrating with them. My wife found out by accident while talking to a couple who attended on [...]

“I Am Obsessed With the Woman I Let Get Away”

I’m male, 40 years old. At one point several years ago, on an overseas business posting during the final downhill slide of my long marriage (my wife was then back in my home country), I fell in love with a wonderful girl – intelligent, loving, passionate, beautiful.

“He LIES and LIES and LIES!”

I have known a guy for a year who has lived with his girlfriend for 20 years. He has told me over and over they are like roommates — that he does not love her and he is going to leave her. Yeah, right. He lies, and I don't believe him for a second, but [...]

My boyfriend and I have been together for two years; I'm happy with our relationship and see a future. My problem is I do not like the majority of his friends and family. We are both in our early 30s and he has had most of his friends since grade school. All of his friends [...]
