Ask Amy: Advice for the real world Samples
DEAR AMY: Is it possible for me to break up with my live-in boyfriend without seeming like a total jerk? He has been supportive of me going to school full time but has also struggled with alcoholism.
DEAR AMY: When I was 14 I came out as gay to my parents. I was beaten, kicked out of my home temporarily and forced into reparative therapy.
DEAR AMY: I have been married for 14 years and have two children. My husband travels out of state every week for work. For the sake of our family, I told him I'd forgive him, and he ended the affair. The other woman and her husband divorced.
DEAR AMY: I'm 40. For some time, we've talked about making a dramatic movie together and finally got serious: We began discussing a script, making plans, assigning parts. We really had a lot of fun. We arranged to have a "premiere" with our kids.
DEAR AMY: I have been dating my boyfriend for five years. He claims he is not addicted to Facebook, but I have learned that he goes on the site many times a day.
DEAR AMY: I am a 19-year-old girl at high risk for breast cancer; it killed my paternal grandmother at age 35, and my maternal aunt was diagnosed at age 56. Shockingly, my mother objects to me having my genes tested.
