Weekend Open Thread

Happy weekend! And happy birthday to my dad, who turns 70 (!) on Sunday. You're the best, Dad. Thanks for being born. (That's him, in case it isn't completely obvious, with me on my wedding day seven years ago). We're leaving town again this weekend — but just over to New Jersey where we'll be [...]

I am 19 years old and in college. I have been with my boyfriend, on and off, since my first weekend here when I met him, two years ago. We broke up last year for a couple months and then got back together and have been together ever since. My boyfriend was my first and [...]

I've been with my fiancé, "Jim," for seven years and we have been engaged for a little over one year. When I first met him, I knew how much of a family man he was — it's one of the reasons I fell in love with him. His family is all located within the same [...]

Weekend Open Thread

Last weekend, we had our first not-just-visiting-family family (mini-) vacation in three years, and it was wonderful. Well, mostly wonderful. I ended up getting sick for a big chunk of the trip, but luckily we were able to extend our stay by one day pretty easily so I got to decompress and relax at least [...]

My husband and I have been together almost ten years, have been married ten months and have just purchased our first home. His mother, who lives a few miles away, is driving me NUTS. My own mom also lives a few miles away, but she would never in a million years do any of the [...]

This letter recently appeared in a Dear Prudence column: My partner and I recently added a third guy to our relationship. It’s not a casual thing — we are dating him with a goal of having a lasting relationship. So my approach has been to be open about telling people when they ask, “What’s new?” [...]

I met my ex-boyfriend two months after his mother was tragically killed and one month after he broke up with his girlfriend of three years. He didn't tell me about either of these until two months into the relationship. We had an awesome honeymoon stage in the relationship and I was sure he was very [...]

My boyfriend of nine months, Mark (26), has a sister, "Rachel" (30), and one evening while we were all at at their parents' place she went on and on and on about how sexy she thinks her brother is, which was weird. We — my boyfriend, his sister, her boyfriend of four years, and I [...]

I just got out of a twelve-year relationship (we were high school sweethearts) last September. I did everything I could to try and make things work. I was patient, understanding, forgiving, open, loyal, loving..... the list goes on. Anytime I tried to have a serious discussion, though, he would shut down like a child and [...]

I'm the middle sister between two brothers whom I love dearly and with whom I have complicated but cherished relationships. Last year, our father died tragically and unexpectedly. My mother, brothers, husband and I are still grappling with the pain and shock of his death and have been trying as hard as we can to [...]

Everything’s Fine

Hi! A few people have reached out to me today to make sure everything is OK with me since I didn't post any new content. Thank you for the concern — all is fine (I'm just a little tired is all)! I'm simply slowing down a bit this summer. Jackson is out of school and, [...]

My fiancée is 5 feet tall, 115 lbs., Asian — a very classy lady who dresses very classy. But we have one problem that has caused arguing: Although she is almost flat-chested, she wears padded bras and it does not take much before nipples are exposed. I know she is not the exhibitionist type, and [...]

Hey, sorry no new letter today. With Jackson out of school for the summer, my work schedule and priorities have had to shift a bit, so expect to see more days over the next couple of months like today. I did want to turn your attention to this hot topic on the forums (I added [...]
