Do I tell my son she's cheating?

Q.   My son's wife is cheating on him. Both she and my son are 29 and have been together for just over 9 years. I received an e-mail about 4 years ago from someone who has sent me evidence that she has been cheating on him for the past 5 or 6 years w...

A.   29 October 2017: He is your son! Why haven't you told him? I would tell him immediately. Show him the evidence. Tell him at an appropriate time but I think you've waited long could you let this carry on? Oh dear. ... (read in full...)

Q.   So, I'm in a relatively new relationship.....we met in June but things have gotten more serious in the past 2 months where we now are exclusive......he's been talking about an event he wants to attend in the big apple in december and so we've been ...

A.   24 October 2017: I don't understand why you wouldn't have responded with "you said all I had to pay for was the ticket to the event"? And that should have cleared up the situation. Either you'd have found a compromise or you wouldn't. If you can't afford half of it, ... (read in full...)

Q.   My wife (aged 55)and very attractive, and I have been married for 24 years and over the last 3 years I (aged 57) have had trouble maintaining an erection during sex, I have tried all the usual medications but I get side effects from them, so I have ...

A.   11 October 2017: I'm confused - you go to the bathroom to masturbate? Why isn't she pleasuring you? And surely if you can find pleasure in this way then it's just penetrative sex you're struggling with? There must be a solution to that (counselling, changing ... (read in full...)

Why can a woman reject sex but if her boyfriend does it, it's the worst thing ever?

Q.   Why does a female get so offended when you reject her from any pleasure? I been in relationship nearly 4 / 5 years. She doesn’t have same sex drive as me, she felt up for it once in our week long holiday, but because I’m so used to not having it she ...

A.   2 October 2017: Clearly, you're not compatible. It's been four years and more and you're not happy. You even say "she is not worth talking to". I don't know what you can do to be honest. If you've tried talking and it hasn't changed and even when she makes an ... (read in full...)

Q.   My family is dividing my grandmother's jewelery this weekend. The divide is between my mother (daughter), my cousin (granddaughter), me (granddaughter), and my cousin's 15 year old (great-granddaughter). My mom insists that my grandmother told her ...

A.   7 September 2017: Can you speak to you grandfather? Surely he should decide who has what? Clearly doing something like a "lucky dip" wouldn't work if people are greedy. Could you grandfather give it out as Christmas gifts? That way everyone gets one nice thing, a... (read in full...)

My co-worker is trying to paint me as a bully!

Q.   Hi Agony Aunts and Uncles. I work with this girl who is trying to paint me as a Bully. We don't always see eye to eye. She says I pick on her when I have to tell her she is doing something wrong. I don't like being that person. Its because I have a...

A.   6 September 2017: If it is your job to provide feedback maybe you need to have a sit down with her with a manager present to clear the air. She can say what her problems are and you can say your point. It works in a "I feel offended when you say abc because I don't ... (read in full...)

Is it ever ok for your boyfriend to insinuate that you're fat? Feeling hurt and ashamed, how do I react?

Q.   Hey guys :-) I was just hoping for some advice. I've been with my boyfriend for 7 years and I think of myself as a really good girlfriend to him. When we first got together we were both in very good shape. However over the years we've both put w...

A.   27 August 2017: It's understandable (but NOT acceptable) that he suddenly seems to be being negative about your appearance. If he is suddenly so into his own shape and weight then maybe he wants you to be the same? Maybe it's all gone to his head and he's forgotten ... (read in full...)

Why won't he Marry me?

Q.   Hi, I have been with my partner 6 years next month. I never wanted to get married, was never something that was important to me. Until I was in love. We have been together 6 years and have agreed to start trying for a baby next year after my friends ...

A.   23 August 2017: As long as you both agree that you want the same things then what is your problem? He said yes and one day. He didn't say "no, never". If you're going to be together forever why does it have to be a rush to get there? Be patient. Maybe he is wait... (read in full...)

How can I manage my wedding envy?

Q.   First let me tell you that I know how utterly ridiculous I sound, but here's the story. I am 29 and have been with my partner for 9 years and we are engaged. We have travelled together and have good jobs. We were going to get married this year bu...

A.   20 August 2017: I think it's a natural feeling when someone younger than you reaches a "milestone" before you that you're really excited to get to. Just try to be happy. Day dream about your own wedding and use their experience as advice for what might go wrong... (read in full...)

A.   5 August 2017: Blow jobs do NOT equal love. Her unwillingness to give you one does not mean she does not love you. It's ridiculous. And don't use the excuse that you give it, so you should get it. Have you even asked her if she likes them? I used to do things w... (read in full...)

A.   5 August 2017: Two hours isn't really THAT long a distance. Why have you not managed to see each other at least once a month? I used to have a bf who moved to uni and for three years we were 200miles and a 5.5hour train journey from each other and I saw him once a ... (read in full...)

My boyfriend masterbated to porn next to me while I was sleeping

Q.   Hello, so I woke up next to my boyfriend yesterday and noticed porn in his history, I was confused so I asked him why he had porn in his history and he said he fapped last night. I asked him if he did it right next to me and he said yes!!!! Is it ...

A.   29 July 2017: I think it's disgusting. You're not over reacting. You have every right to not approve of it. I wouldn't be happy about it. Masterbate when I'm not home, not when I'm home in a different room, home and in the bath - no. Yea everyone has a righ... (read in full...)

Is my boyfriend being wise and protecting himself? Or is there more to the story?

Q.   My boyfriend and I have a very happy relationship, we spend a lot of our time together, we go out, stay in, and we have a lot of sex and we're very affectionate towards one another. We are in the process of selling our houses separately and buying ...

A.   25 July 2017: We have just bought a house. My boyfriend had a £15000 deposit and I had £4000. That's a huge difference. We both own the same amount of the house. We agree that should we break up and it is still appropriate, we will make sure he has an extra ... (read in full...)

I cheated on my fiance and am looking at others because of the lack of sex in our relationship

Q.   Looking for advice... I'm marrying my fiancé next year whom I've been with for 9 years. We've had our ups and downs over the years and he's not had much time for me over the past couple of years as he's been studying on top of his full time job. Thi...

A.   13 July 2017: How callous and heartless and thoughtless of you both to agree it is only a "one time thing" like that is any justification for what you did. Cheating is cheating. Leave your fiance if he isn't giving you what you want. He deserves better and y... (read in full...)

Is it that bad I really feel down about it?

Q.   This is so silly but Ive been feeling really down about my friends accomplishments. One being; I've been learning to drive for a good while now and not booked a date for my practical test. My friend has just started (well not long started) and she...

A.   11 July 2017: Learning to drive is just one of those things that takes different people different times. It's okay to have a moment of "Oh I wish I was booking my test" or a little bit of jealousy but it's important to let it go quickly. You re your own person ... (read in full...)

Q.   A few months ago, my boyfriend and I argued over a woman that he had been making sexual comments with on facebook. He said that he was joking, but I didn't think it was funny. She said she had a soft spot for him, then he mentioned a "hard spot" , ...

A.   7 July 2017: You sound so distressed and so unhappy. You obviously have trust issues which have not been helped by his complete lack of respect and his choice to think sending sexual messages to anyone other than his girlfriend is okay. It isn't about if he ... (read in full...)

I need him to be more adventurous in bed

Q.   Well, my boyfriend and I have a decent sexual relationship. However, I wanted to try something different and interesting, but he wanted nothing of it. Most of the time when one of us wants to have sex or fool around, we dance around the subje...

A.   1 July 2017: I think what you're asking for is for it to be more spontaneous? As in, you don't want a discussion beforehand so you've given pre-permission. Maybe you should talk to him about what HE might be comfortable with. He clearly isn't keen on what you... (read in full...)

Q.   Hey, my online date im yet to meet has just told me his mum died last week . We have been talking a while but im going on holiday so we cant meet just yet . apart from the usual that would be said how else should i handle the situation i dont ...

A.   27 June 2017: There's nothing you can say. You just say you're there to listen if he wants to talk and you want to be there for him however you can. The reality is nothing you can do can change anything or help really. So don't beat yourself up. He needs to ... (read in full...)

We don't want kids or pregnancy but husband is against abortion. Help!

Q.   My husband and I never wanted children. I dislike children and the thought of being pregnant. He is fine with them but prefers not to have any of his own. We have always used condoms. I have never used any other kind of birth control. I do no...

A.   22 June 2017: Is it possible that he hasn't completely given up on the idea of having children? This is the only thing I can suggest as to why he would be against it. He obviously wants the option to remain open. If he was that against it he would be pushing for ... (read in full...)

Is my boyfriends best friend trying to break us up? Should the relationship be put after his best friend?

Q.   So this is a bit of a long story so I do apologise in advance. Back in December my boyfriend broke up with his ex girlfriend, then on a drunken evening on New Year's Eve he slept with his best friend, that was all it was to him. We are all part of a ...

A.   21 June 2017: I've actually been in this situation. It did not end well. You shouldn't have to put up with this. He should stand up for you and put his foot down with his "friend" but I bet that he won't. My ex didn't either. They basically cheated together but ... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: You said yourself you are enjoying going to bed alone, you are enjoying your space, you are your own person and you don't want the criticism. Being in a loving, healthy relationship is about making each other feel good and inspiring each other to... (read in full...)

Boyfriend wanted to use an old tube of lubricant during sex but I got upset because he's used it with previous partners. Am I being silly?

Q.   Hi Everyone, So I have a bit of an awkward question, but genuinely don't know if I'm overreacting and too embarrassed too ask friends/family. So my boyfriend of 1 year has had a tube of lubricant in his drawer for a while, I noticed it a whil...

A.   16 June 2017: I've never really been bothered by this. I guess if it was hygienically used I'd be fine with it but if you're not comfortable, is it really a big deal for him to replace it? Why don't you buy some and just replace it yourself? I'm sure if he ... (read in full...)

Q.   I am married and now having an affair with a man who told me he 70, but I did abackground check and hes 82!! My guess is he did not want to reveal his real age because I would have said no way. I really like him. I just think it's strange that a ...

A.   4 June 2017: I think it's strange that you're so concerned about this guys age but not about the fact that you're having an affair I also think it's odd that you're lying to your spouse and sleeping around. Maybe he didn't WANT to have affair with you spe... (read in full...)

A.   25 May 2017: Why are you even still with him? :( poor you being treated so badly. You deserve so much better than this. He has shown how much he doesn't respect you or your relationship. He cared so little he gave you chlamydia. You can laugh with him until the ... (read in full...)

A.   25 May 2017: Your boyfriend sounds like a bad egg :( our friends show a lot about how we are ourselves. You are what you surround yourself with. I would be questioning his morals and what he thinks is okay. Tell your friend, she deserves to know. If you want... (read in full...)

A.   22 May 2017: It takes two to make a baby. If he really didn't want anymore then there is something he should have done about that. You should know each other well enough after two children to be able to talk about this. It concerns me that you're so worried ... (read in full...)

A.   16 May 2017: I think your concerns are legitimate. I would worry about the impact on the child. I know you should trust a mother's judgment of what's best for their young child but I know too many mothers who put themselves first. I would be concerned too. T... (read in full...)

A.   1 May 2017: If the "other ways she's affectionate" was enough, you wouldn't feel this way. It's difficult to imagine living without someone but imagine being in the pain you are in right now every day, for the rest of forever? I just want to second that you... (read in full...)

Advice on how women feel about orgasms please?

A.   30 April 2017: It's reasonable to expect to organ everytime. How would you feel if it were the other way around? What if it took you 20+ minutes of sex but she organs after five and wants to stop because a "quickie" was enough for her? Would that be fair? S... (read in full...)

Should work always come first for my boyfriend, even in case of a minor medical emergency like mine?

Q.   My boyfriend of one year works from home. We live together. He's the project manager of a small but successful company. He works at least 10 hours a day. I had severe stomach pains yesterday which came back this morning, so my boyfriend took m...

A.   18 April 2017: I think you're slightly overreacting in this instance. He shouldn't be at your beck ams call just because you woke up and he wasn't there - that sounds a bit petty and childish. If work came "first" he would not have even taken you to A&E. So please ... (read in full...)

I queried my husband about an App he has on his phone. Do I let it go or do I go deeper?

Q.   My husband was checking his phone in front of me and I saw that he has a chat lock app. I asked him why and he said that he hates when I see his texts. I was like WTF, I have NEVER checked his phone or his WhatsApp chats. If he hands me his pho...

A.   17 April 2017: Oh.. That sounds incredibly suspicious. Are you sure there has been no previous trust issues or checking of his phone? If there really hasn't then I'd say he's up to no good :/ you shouldn't jump to conclusions but it doesn't sound good and it ... (read in full...)

A.   10 March 2017: How irritating. I'd just ask them why they can't go to yours but can go on this other thing. The response might tell you if you need new friends. You can ask them for the deposit but if they were good friends I feel they'd have offered already. ... (read in full...)

I'm troubled by my boyfriend's spiteful side

A.   10 March 2017: That IS spiteful and he was punishing you. It's a red flag in my book. Imagine how he'll react when something actually is all your fault? Poor you. It's such a stressful situation and surprisingly easy to get wrong! We all make mistakes sometime... (read in full...)

A.   14 January 2017: Surely you realise how insane this sounds? If you had to go to such lengths to catch him out then you really don't trust him and should just leave him. People in healthy relationships don't get alias phones and text pretending to be someone else and ... (read in full...)

A.   1 January 2017: I think it says a lot about how much a partner knows you when they buy a ring. The ring they get also says a lot about them and clearly in this instance it has highlighted a lot of differences. If they get a ring you love, then this shows that they ... (read in full...)
