I want to respect her wishes, but I feel hurt and confused by her request.
I need to talk to him about our future, but he can’t handle it.
During my parents’ divorce, nearly 30 years ago, my father kidnapped me. He and I now have a good relationship, but my mother has never forgiven him.
In his final days, I didn’t show him the love and care he deserved.

She said that she loves me but doesn’t want to be with me.
After we cheated on each other 26 years ago, we promised to never let outsiders into our marriage again. But for more than two years, he’s been carrying on some sort of friendship with a woman from his high school.

His mother had to give up her first boy for adoption, and she never told her second son. I don’t know whether I owe him the truth.
He has adapted to her behavior over the years, but I don’t know how to coexist with her.
How hard, I think, can this be?
As he and his ex are nearing the end of their divorce process, I’m not sure how much I can actually trust him.
Our birth-control methods failed, and we can’t afford a second child financially or career-wise.
