DEAR ABBY: Our daughter, “Joan,” and her husband, “Frank,” have been married 19 years. Their only child will be 4 next month. A year and a half ago, Frank came out as a transgender female.
DEAR ABBY: At what point does a man finally give up hope of finding a mate and accept that he may end up alone?
DEAR ABBY: I am estranged from my sister, whom I love dearly. The reason goes back many years. When I was 13, her husband got me drunk and molested me.
When extended families lived closer together, it was easy to pass on family stories and anecdotes, maybe while cooking dinner or putting children to bed.
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I just moved in together. We have been a couple for seven years. Until now, we have lived with our parents.
