Dear Abby: I’ve been married more than 20 years and have three children. What I haven’t had is a real desire for sex — nor have I ever had, as far as I know, an orgasm. Before my wedding, my mother warned me that sex was overblown, uncomfortable and messy, but she said I had to put up with it if I wanted kids and a good marriage.
Dear Abby: My husband and I have two daughters whom we have taught to use good manners. We are proud that they always remember to use their “pleases” and “thank yous” and many people have commented how polite they are.
