DEAR ABBY: I have been friends with “Martha” for 40 years. We live a few hundred miles apart, so I like to call her and chat.
DEAR ABBY: I retired after a 40-year career. A friend from work, “Bernie,” is the same age I am (62) but is still working.
DEAR ABBY: My husband has been so-called friends with a man I’ll call “Roy” for almost 30 years.
DEAR ABBY: This is something I can’t talk about in my grief support group. I’m a 70-year-old widow. I lost my dear husband of 35 years 17 months ago. I always was more sexual than he was.
DEAR ABBY: My friend has decided she can no longer tolerate my husband. She feels he doesn’t “respect” her. This is far from the truth, in my mind.
