DEAR ABBY: my family and i retired 5 years ago. We have sufficient cost savings and an pension that is excellent us to call home comfortably.
We used a spare time activity three years ago that creates about $5,000 in yearly income, that we put away in a separate bank-account. My spouse asked, “what exactly are you saving that money for? ” I said perhaps a car that is classic helping with a household reunion ( on my part), etc. She responded, “We must be regarding the same page about how it gets invested because 50 % of it really is mine. ”
He sided with her because (legally) half of what I have is hers when I reached out to my son for his insight. We have not a problem consulting I feel she is controlling and petty with her on a major expenditure coming out of our other savings, but on this one. Your thinking?

DEAR ABBY: My daughter just informed me that she’s going to be hanging a head that is deer their family area. Her live-in boyfriend loves to hunt, and she actually is achieving this for him. Just thinking about any of it makes me physically ill. My ideas seek out a dying animal whom is putting up with.

UNEASY IN OREGON
DEAR UNEASY: i believe we both know your daughter is a grown-up and entitled to make that choice without worrying that her fella’s hobby eastmeeteast bothers you. We don’t have to like it or approve. Because what’s upsetting you is the theory that the deer suffered, ask your child (or him) just how numerous shots it took to make the creature down. In your home if it was more than one, you might be happier entertaining them.
DEAR ABBY: my partner left me just a little over two years ago, and I can’t appear to get on it. All she said had been that individuals had an “emotional disconnect. ” We don’t believe she had been unfaithful.

I’m a specialist by having a career that is good retirement, and I have already been approached by some good ladies who would really like to date. How do I get over my feelings for my ex?
