DEAR ABBY: My husband of 30-plus years cheated on me several years ago with one of his young private students. In our state, she would have been underage, but she was living in an adjacent state with different laws.
I had just finished six months of nursing his mom to heaven. She had Alzheimer’s, and he did very little to help.
We had one of the few fights in our marriage about his affair, but nothing was ever resolved.
I suspect he’s still in contact with her, but I can’t prove it. He has never apologized for his behavior. Otherwise, he has been a good husband.
Dear Abby: I’m afraid this one difference will torpedo our romance
Dear Abby: Bride-to-be is living a fairy tale, but not a good one
Dear Abby: I’m 17, and I feel like God wants me to keep my baby
Dear Abby: I’m the mother of the bride, and there are going to be awkward questions
Dear Abby: I’m engaged to a man who creeps people out
He is sick himself now, and I don’t feel right about leaving him. Any thoughts?

DEAR NOT RIGHT: Under the circumstances, you are a nicer woman than he deserves. If you feel you should stay with him until death — or recovery — I respect you for it. However, if you are one of those caring individuals who expends so much time and energy that doing it could hurt your own health, I think you’re entitled to spend as much time as you need taking care of YOURSELF.
DEAR ABBY: A friend blew me off after a 35-year friendship. I’ve no idea why — just a very hurtful, nasty message.
Over the years, we had many ups and downs, but we always made up. Now it has been almost two years since I heard from her.
Last week, for my birthday, she tried to contact me, but I have her blocked. She contacted my sister and said she wants to bury the hatchet. I said, “Where?! In the back of my head?”
I haven’t contacted her yet and am not sure I want to. She hurt me badly. I cried for so long.
She was my best friend. I knew she wasn’t perfect, she is the original Drama Queen, but we were still closer than most sisters. I would at least like to know what made her blow us apart.
Should I contact her? My pastor gave a sermon on forgive and forget, but I don’t know if I can do either.
