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.
I’m not sure why I’m reacting so strongly to hearing about conflicts at school.
He wants to take pictures with her and their daughter like they’re still one happy family—and I want him to stop.
She thought that her daughter would want to meet her one day. Twenty-five years later, that’s not true.
My husband and I live close to him, but he rarely visits us.
Listening to my friends talk about their relationship problems is getting really tough.
I’ve tried to be respectful to my ex-wife and keep things private, but our mutual friends seem to be taking her side.
Every time I try to talk about my problem, I just start crying.
She just told me she’s gay. I’ve already talked to her about sex with boys—how do I talk to her about girls?
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.
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.
Her relationship shows all the typical signs of emotional manipulation and physical harm, but she refuses to admit that there’s a problem.
She picks fights, doesn’t listen to others, and makes everyone uncomfortable. Nobody wants to invite her to events—and I feel awful about it.
I want to be there for him, but his depressive episodes are difficult for me to handle.
Before her health took a turn for the worse, we had both agreed that we should end our 14-year marriage.
He has grades and test scores that I think should qualify him for the Ivy League—but he’s also white and upper-middle-class.
I want to reestablish our connection, but she won’t even acknowledge me at family events.
