Dear Abby: Dad getting divorce applauds mom’s devotion to their son

Dear Abby: My wife and I will be legally divorced within a few weeks. We have a year-old son. Although we have been separated for eight months, she is an awesome mother to our son. A man could not ask for a better lady to care for his child. We don’t talk about much other than our son. We are no longer in love, but I can honestly say I love her for who she is — the mother of my child.

Carolyn Hax: Change in social life leads to hurt feelings

Dear Carolyn: I have been in a relationship for six years. From the outset it was a long-distance situation, as she was often off on extended work-related projects, but we had a very strong connection when together. We have been making plans that would mean my following her to her long-term posting. She has also been my best friend for all these years.

Advice

Dear Abby: Prayer can turn to panic during restaurant outings

Dear Abby: I’m comfortable with my faith and pray before a meal at home and at friends’ houses. We have become friendly with individuals from our church, and on many occasions have gone out to eat together at restaurants. When the meal is brought out, it has become a custom to pray. I feel uncomfortable praying aloud in public, and have seen others at our table already eating when someone says, “Let’s pray.”

Advice

Dear Abby: Boss’ unwelcome advances make first job uncomfortable

Dear Abby: I’m 16 and just got my first job working in food services. I have been working here for about two months, and have grown close with my co-worker “Samantha” and my boss. Samantha quit suddenly a few days ago. Today she told me our boss had told her he had strong feelings for her. He’s married with kids.
