Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married coming on 19 years. We have two kids. Since we had children, she never seems to want to be intimate with me -- so much so that she went to her general doctor for some help. That was three years ago.
Dear Annie: After years of fiscal discipline, my wife and I have paid off our mortgage. We contemplated having a mortgage-burning party to celebrate but were advised this would be in poor taste and akin to bragging. While we are justifiably proud, we don't wish to offend anyone. What is your opinion? -- Paid in Full
Dear Annie: I was troubled by one particular sentence in the letter from "Missing Love," who wanted another relationship after his wife died. He said, "My problem is that I still love her."
My husband and I are 72 and have had a good life together, raising two boys who have become really good men. Their wives and our grandchildren are the best. Here's my dilemma: We're meeting with a financial planner in a week, and we were given papers to read and questions to answer prior to the actual appointment.
Dear Annie:I have been with my boyfriend for 15 years. He has been a great dad to my three sons. He cooks, cleans, changes diapers and takes care of my sons when they are sick. He has no children of his own. I am 20 years his senior. Our sex life was great for about 11 or so years. But it's gone downhill. He always wants to be intimate when I'm not in the mood, but I go along with it to make him happy, and I oblige all his requests. But when I am in the mood and he's not, he doesn't care. The tenderness is gone from our intimacy, as well as the excitement. I'd appreciate your advice here. We don't even kiss anymore because his breath smells like cigarettes and marijuana. -- Looking for Love
