Wife says cheatin’ heart still beats for ex-husband
DEAR ABBY: I am having a problem with my ex-wife. During our marriage, I caught her cheating four times. She swears she still loves me and only me. (We still see each other.) She comes over and spends the night with me every once in a while, and we have sex together, even though she has been engaged to a man in Florida for more than a year. He has money and buys her very nice gifts. (He just bought her a ’91 Camaro.)
The problem is, I still love her and would like to get back together if she would only let go of the “money man.” Should I let her go or keep trying to get her back?
A TOUGH DECISION
DEAR TOUGH DECISION: Let her go. She’s using you (for sex) and using the man in Florida for whatever she can get out of him. If you were to get her back, what would you have? A promiscuous gold digger who can’t be trusted.
DEAR ABBY: Twice recently, my daughter (the eldest and married) asked me to intervene in her behalf concerning some disagreements she has been having with some of her siblings.
My answer was, “No, please try to work it out yourselves." She then told me that it was my duty to intervene. I disagreed, saying I was not going to take sides — I wanted to be on friendly terms with all my children and their spouses.
Her husband then sent me a nasty letter calling me “ignorant and selfish,” and saying I could no longer
write to — or speak with — my
Abby, was I wrong in refusing to intervene?
PROBLEMS ON THE HOME FRONT
DEAR PROBLEMS: No, I think you used good judgment in remaining neutral. Now, about vour name-calling son-in-law: He does not speak for his wife — unless, of course, she has authorized him to be her representative. Has she?
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are happily married. We both agree that our family is complete and we do not want any more children. We use birth control, but nothing is foolproof, and just the thought of another pregnancy makes me shiver in my boots!
The reason my husband hasn’t gotten a vasectomy is because we haven’t been able to find out if such measures are right in the eyes of the Lord. We are members of the congregation of a very small Christian church, and I just can’t bring myself to ask our minister. Can you please help us?
SHY IN COLORADO
DEAR SHY: Perhaps you would feel more comfortable
consulting a clergyperson of your faith in a neighboring town. Or you could write to the district
office of your church and inquire.
DEAR AEBY: Reading in your column that you put your glasses on
when you answer the phone prompts
Even if it’s dark, when we need to hear, we put our glasses on. Regardless of how strange it may seem, we hear better with glasses. This theory has been tested, and it’s true.
R. KAY IN L.A.
DEAR ABBY: Tonight, while shopping at a large department store.
I witnessed a man pull his son’s hair and then he kept punching him very hard on his back and shoulders in an effort to make the boy obey.
The boy looked to be about 7 or 8 years old. The poor kid sat on the floor and cried silently while his father delivered these cruel blows with hate in his eyes. I stood no more than 3 feet away throughout this episode, searching for the right words to demand that he stop hurting the boy, but I feared that if I said anything, the man would be angered and embarrassed and would take his anger out on the child later at home.
Please address this issue, Abby. Tell your readers how to handle such situations.

tempted to calm the father by saying, *T know exactly how you feel. Sometimes taking a child that age shopping is more than we nan handle.” And without being judgmental, in a soft and sympathetic tone, you would have intervened and brought an out-of-control man beck to reality This sometimes takes more courage than most people have in today’s “mind-your-own-business" society, but to do nothing while witnessing child abuse is indefensible.
