DEAR ABBY: My fiancée has two daughters (14 and 11) from a previous marriage. Their dad, “Brett,” was just arrested for his fourth DUI, the second within a year.
DEAR ABBY: My father has been mostly absent from my life. We reconnected when I was an adult.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 49-year-old woman whose mother tries to make me feel guilty for having a good relationship with my father.
DEAR ABBY: My father is in his 70s and lives close by. My brother and his family live across the country.
DEAR ABBY: My father’s behavior has been very peculiar lately. He and Mom have been married for 45 years. Of course, all marriages go through ups and downs.
