Carolyn Hax: How to support daughter 'checking the marriage box'

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 16:42:00 UT

A reader writes: "My smart, successful, and never-been-married 41-year-old daughter has recently become engaged to a twice-divorced man whom she has nothing in common with except a desire to not be alone anymore.

Carolyn Hax: Mom keeps supporting 'problem child' sibling

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 16:20:00 UT

Carolyn Hax: Expressing concern for a newly bald neighbor

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:54:00 UT

Carolyn Hax: Raise a child, not a gender

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 16:53:00 UT

A reader writes: "I noticed some commenters took issue with your suggestion that girls don't have the deck stacked against them and shouldn't be taught that they do. Could you expand on what you meant by that?"

Carolyn Hax: Accepting parental favortism

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 16:29:00 UT

Carolyn Hax: Priced out of friend's wedding

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 16:02:00 UT

A reader writes: "My family is on one income and the expenses come up to over $1,000. How can I get out of it without hurting her feelings or breaking my bank (or robbing a bank)?"

Carolyn Hax: Relief and happiness after leaving fiance

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 17:14:00 UT

A reader writes: "My former fiancé, 'John,' prefers staying home to going out unless it's for work or family. I'm easygoing and never had a problem until a few weeks ago when he didn't come to an awards ceremony where I was being honored."

Carolyn Hax: A gift of jewelry, with strings attached?

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 17:00:00 UT

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 18:07:00 UT

Carolyn Hax: Children's award ceremonies bring out mom's jealousy

Wed, 9 Aug 2017 17:31:00 UT

Carolyn Hax: Reining in kids' birthday parties

Tue, 8 Aug 2017 16:12:00 UT

A reader writes: "My question is actually twofold: Should I try to rein in this party and somehow request no gifts or a charity donation instead, and how do parents of older twins handle this?"

Carolyn Hax: Bachelorette party anxiety exposes different side of fiancé

Mon, 7 Aug 2017 15:49:00 UT
