Dear Abby: My husband wears a hairpiece. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very real. Nearly every time we are in a public place, I notice somebody staring or laughing at it. I have talked to him about it only a couple of times, but each time he tells me how attached he is to it and how good it feels on his head. I want him to be happy, but I do not want him to be publicly ridiculed. Should I throw it away?
Wife of a man with a “secret
Absolutely not. If you want to help your husband, start talking with some hairstylists. There may be a product on the market that is more convincing than what your husband is wearing.
Dear Abby: I am recently married, and my husband and I have not consummated our marriage. I made it clear that this would not be a part of our life together, and he agreed long before we took our vows. We sleep separately.
Recently, my husband has become sullen and passive-aggressive. He tries to push the issue, to the point of making unwanted physical contact. We love each other, but his behavior is starting to take a toll on me and the stress is straining our relationship.
Asexual in love
How uncomfortable for you and how frustrating for him. He may have thought that after your wedding, with time, he could change your mind — or he may regard your lack of interest in sex as personal rejection.
For the kind of marriage you envisioned, BOTH parties must feel the same way about sex. Because he agreed to something he can’t live with, it might be better for both of you if you separated.
