There’s gratitude for you

Dear Annie: My parents own a good amount of land in their native country. When I was growing up, they paid for my tuition but were not very supportive emotionally. I sponsored them to come to the U.S., and because they didn’t speak English (and still don’t), I helped them find jobs. The problem is, […]

It’s more of an un-vitation

Dear Annie: I am a 27-year-old woman and have been verbally invited to a few weddings this year. For one, we were told to “save the date” a year in advance. I never received an actual invitation and their wedding was last weekend. The pictures are popping up on Facebook. The second wedding, the bride […]

Moved into a rough situation

Dear Annie: My husband, “Ben,” and I each lost a spouse and then found each other. We live in the same house with one of his daughters and a granddaughter. Ben is quite attached to this house. The two daughters are the owners now, but their father bought it originally and has always maintained it. […]

Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind

Dear Annie: My heart is breaking for my sister. She has been married to the same man for more than 30 years and he has never been kind or respectful toward her. They have two married sons and a grandchild with health problems. My sister loves that grandchild more than life itself, but she rarely […]

Going to the dogs

Dear Annie: Six years ago, our daughter left her dog with us. We’ve grown to love “Lassie” and would never give her back now. But she wears down the furniture, scratches the floors and leaves lots of hair all over. Last year, we were blessed with grandkids, so now our living room is gated off […]

Torch burns, but gives no light

Dear Annie: Years ago, I was engaged to a man who I thought was the love of my life. But at college, he ghosted me — leaving without an explanation. This was horribly wounding and I never recovered. I am still single, though I haven’t stopped looking for that special someone. My ex-fiancé eventually married a […]

Long-distance interference

Dear Annie: I am a 29-year-old married woman with a 14-month-old son. My husband and I live one hour away from his father and stepmother, “Gladys,” and two hours away from my parents. We all get along great. When I decided to go back to work, both my mother and Gladys volunteered to watch my […]

She’s the only one working on it

Dear Annie: I have been married for more than 25 years to a highly respected, professional man. He has always worked hard, rarely taking time off. My efforts to get him to vacation have not been successful. Although he no longer enjoys his work, he continues these habits to support the family. Our children are […]

Devastated by diagnosis

Dear Annie: My nephew recently found out that he has genital herpes. He is a fine young man and had been dating the girl for a while. When they parted ways, neither of them knew she had a sexually transmitted disease. Since finding this out, my nephew has become so depressed. He is convinced that […]

Maybe she could do it at the reception?

Dear Annie: My daughter has been engaged for several months. Her invitations for the small, family-only wedding were handwritten and mailed six weeks before the event. The wedding is in two weeks. Yesterday, my sister-in-law announced that she is giving my brother a surprise party on my daughter’s wedding day, three hours after the ceremony […]

He’s always on the lookout

Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our 60s. Recently, he hugged a new neighbor and kissed her on the cheek. She is our age and divorced. We don’t know her well at all. I was shocked, embarrassed and angry. I commented later, asking my husband if he hugged and kissed any of the […]

Think you can do better?

Dear Annie: I appreciate the patriotic intent of your July 4 column, but what would my daughter and seven nieces make of the mention of 27 men but just two women? The author overlooked Sacagawea, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the myriad other female contributors to our nation’s progress. Maybe next year you could […]

Losing the battle here

Dear Annie: I follow you on Facebook. I am 18 years old and have been with my boyfriend for more than a year. We used to spend a bit too much time together and I know it wasn’t healthy, so we worked it out and now have new hobbies and see our friends a little […]

Family stuck on how to deal with this

Dear Annie: I have four siblings. One of my sisters thinks she has a right to invite herself to our homes, join us for dinner and attend other functions, whether we invite her or not. It’s like she thinks we are joined at the hip. For example, “Ginny” will call and ask, “Where are we […]
