D ear Abby: I have been with my boyfriend for a little over two years. He recently mentioned that when he was younger (19), he had a threesome (two guys, one girl).
Q: What does your faith say about marriage?
Dear Abby: I recently received a Facebook message from a 47-year-old mother of four who believes she is my daughter. While I do not remember her mother and have communicated this to the woman, the pictures she sent of her children somewhat resemble my family.
Dear Abby: My son is being deployed for 10 months. His wife and baby are coming to live with me, and I am thrilled.
Dear Abby: I am 59 and have a steady, good-paying job. I was married for 20 years, but divorced 11 years ago. I am set in my ways.
Dear Abby: I’m almost 20. I have a well-paying job and live with my mother in a small town. My issue is I don’t know how to break away from her.
D ear Abby: Six months ago, my best friend’s fiance raped me. He is a man I’ve known for many years, and I didn’t see it coming. I became pregnant but had a miscarriage two months later. I recently had to have a hysterectomy from damage incurred from the rape and the miscarriage.
Lama Chuck Stanford, Rime Buddhist Center: Recently, several of our political leaders have disgraced themselves by sexual misconduct, accepting bribes and through other moral lapses. So, how should a politician or leader conduct him or herself?
Well, dog gone. Just when folks have begun to look out for fresh crab from Larry Thevik on the Midnight Star at the Ocean Shores Marina the recreational and commercial Dungeness crab fisheries on the southern coast of Washington will close until further notice because of elevated marine toxin levels, state shellfish managers announced. The coffee drinking groups despairingly nodded their heads in commiseration until they read more carefully that the area north of Point Chehalis, including Grays Harbor, remains open to commercial and recreational crab fishing.
D ear Abby: My mom turned 60 last month, and I hosted a party at her house for friends and family. As things were winding down, I took a break from cleaning up to look over the birthday cards from well-wishers that were displayed on a living room table. Among them was a big, gorgeous card from “Cassie,” a woman around my mother’s age, who I always thought was nothing more than an acquaintance.
Dear Abby: I have a dilemma. Last year my son became a professional in his sport, and he has recently become famous. Since then, everyone is asking for tickets to games because they want in on the action. I treated one relative who lives near me to a game with her son, and now her sister (with whom I’ve had very little contact) is saying she follows the games and would love to attend.
Dear Abby: It’s Father’s Day. Maybe now is the time for people to forgive, forget and remember how wonderful their dad was when they were growing up.
Dear Abby: I am 19, and I like a girl who is 16, “Cheri.” My friends and family think we’re dating, and now one of my teachers and the school officer think it is a problem that we are around each other. I asked Cheri’s family if it was OK with them if I asked her out. Knowing how old I am, they approved.
D ear Abby: I have been having an affair with a married man for eight years. At first, both of us were married, but my husband died two years ago. Since then, my lover and I have grown closer, but he won’t leave his wife because of his kids.
