There are a lot of alcoholics in my family and I consider myself blessed to be able to drink moderately or not at all. I was absolutely floored to read that this woman is buying alcohol for her alcoholic husband. Sure, you can't control another person, but you don't have to enable their bad choices, either. My uncle was a die-hard alcoholic. Of course, he didn't consider himself one. He only drank beer, lots of beer, and he drank every day. He was super thin because he drank beer instead of eating! My aunt finallly divorced him. He got several DUIs and lost his license. So he moved next door to a bar! My one cousin used to go check up on him. Every so often, she'd have to check him into the hospital so that he could be fed intravenously. He outlived all of his siblings, all of whom died tragically young, but he didn't have a great life.  (Jul 23, 2013 | post #31)

Exactly! Try to hang in there for the next 4 years. You can use "I have a lot of homework" to minimize your contact with him. Get that sheepskin and you will have the tools you need to get as far away from him as you can.  (Jul 22, 2013 | post #32)

Team Red! A couple of months ago, a guy in the car next to me started flirting. He was really good-looking. I wish I would have followed him into the shopping center he turned into. But I didn't want to be a stalkerette.  (Jul 19, 2013 | post #12)

Team Cass! LW1: Exactly how much money are we talking about? Do NOT co-sign for any loan if you would not be comfortable making the payments yourself, because that is always possible.  (Jul 18, 2013 | post #14)

Sad letters today. The theme is, you can't always save people from themselves. But if they are your children, you should try. LW1: I hope you got on that plane and checked in on your daughter. She clearly has a problem, and I hope you found out what it is/was. LW2: I don't know if rehab only works when the addict seeks it out, but I would definitely speak with some experienced drug counselors to get their opinions and suggestions.  (Jul 17, 2013 | post #15)

I don't usually change because I don't have to dress up for work and what I wear to the office is comfortable enough for the house. Plus, I currently have an opposite sex platonic housemate, so I keep it decent.  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #15)

My uncle and aunt had 4 girls - all delivered via c-section, old school c-section. The doctor firmly told my aunt, "no more babies" that she'd be endangering her health and that of the baby. Be happy with what you have, or hope for granddaughters!  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #8)

Mine, too. He'd put on pants when we had houseguests. My friend's dad refused to put on pants houseguests or no. At home, he was in his boxers and if anyone didn't like it, they didn't need to come over. Some people don't like clothes the same way that I don't like shoes.  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #8)

LW1: I'm with JMW; age is a number. If you find somebody that you are compatible with, who cares how long you have been on this earth? Nobody besides you two should get a vote. LW2: Team PEllen and edog. LW3: Team RACE! The best defense is a good offense.  (Jul 15, 2013 | post #14)

This site is one of my guilty pleasures... especially for slow days @ work like today.  (Jul 12, 2013 | post #38)

I've seen that, too, and with a belt. And they say women are fashion slaves. For the record, I have never liked or used hairspray. I like my hair to feel soft.  (Jul 12, 2013 | post #37)

Young men, on the other hand, think that wearing their jeans super loose and low, revealing their underwear, is an attractive look.  (Jul 12, 2013 | post #33)
