July 7 — The Monett Times Midweek By Monetttimes
Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for 40 years, are professionals and work together. He is cynical, sarcastic, angry, resentful and insulting. What should I do?
? After putting up with this kind of mistreatment for 40 years, I think it’s time to tune it up, don’t you? Since your relationship can suffer from too much “togetherness,” take time away from him—and the business—and do something enjoyable for yourself when you can. And suggest that he does the same because he might need a change of pace, too. I’ve been with my husband for seven years, and I’m tired of having the same fight every day. He smokes marijuana, and I hate him. It has been a constant battle for years. We tried medicine, which helped for a while, but he goes back to smoking behind my back. We tried to reach a compromise that he only smokes after a certain time of the day, but it still leads to a fight.
He shuts me out when he does drugs and says I don’t care about his happiness because it’s something he enjoys, and I’m taking it away. I love him so much, but I hate drugs and I don’t like what he looks like when he’s smoking.
I want to have a child, but I’m uncomfortable with drugs in the house. I feel like I can’t trust him to be alone with a baby when he’s high. I don’t want to leave her, but I can’t take it anymore. It is exhausting to have the same fight every day, and it has really taken a toll on our marriage. I want him to choose me over this, but if I give him an ultimatum, he’ll hate me. What do I do? — ANTI-DRUG IN ILLINOIS

Give your husband that ultimatum and pack your bags. If you prefer your child’s father not to use marijuana and he can’t quit, then, as much as you love him, this person is not the one for you. Sorry.
I have read your column for years, often taking advice you give others and applying it to my situation. I have developed a relationship with a woman who is 30 – 28 years younger than myself. She is a waitress at a diner I frequent. I have watched her children grow over the past six or seven years. We have had many meaningful conversations and shared our highs and lows. She is naturally friendly.
Three or four years ago, she started sharing a leg side hook when I arrived. I never ask for them. Over the past year, these hugs have grown closer, not in a sexual way – just a deeper bond of friendship. We sometimes IM when she’s off work, but I don’t see it socially.
Recently she has been teasing that she will be her next. I repeat the flirtation and laugh. I believe attraction is mutual. If not for the age difference, which I’m fine with, or the fear of causing issues with our relationship, I would ask her out. Social taboos weigh heavily on my mind, and I am pragmatic. Should I or shouldn’t I? Or am I reading too much into our relationship? – Uncertain IN THE MIDWEST
Dear Abby May 4: Sister Can’t Watch As Brother’s Bullying Wife Calls The Shots
Without seeing the chemistry between the two of you, I couldn’t say. But, nothing campaigned, nothing won. The next time you see her, after one of those “closer” hugs, quickly tell her you’ve been thinking about her idea of being her next and ask if she’d like have dinner sometime. Her answer will tell you if you’ve been reading too much into the relationship.

For over 20 years, my husband and I hosted dinner every Sunday after church. I set the table for 10, but we often had more. When guests offered to help, I gave them a copy of that poem. Could you reprint it for your readers? — A LOYAL FOLLOWER IN MASSACHUSETTS

DEAR ABBY: I had weight loss surgery six months ago. I didn’t experience the amazing transformation that some people experience. I only lost about 50 pounds.
Dear Abby: Happy Host Declines Help In The Kitchen With A Poem
My problem is, friends who know I had the surgery ask me how much weight I lost. I think it’s a rude question and none of their business. I understand that people are curious, especially since they haven’t seen me in person due to the COVID restrictions. How do I answer without saying, “None of your business”? —- LOST IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR LOSS: Maybe your friends are just curious and want to congratulate you on a big loss, and 50 pounds is one. That said, you don’t have to answer every question that is asked. All you have to do is say, “I’ll let you guess when you see me again.”
If they ask for a hint, stick to your guns and change the subject. Then consider this: They may be measuring the success of your surgery for themselves.

After the funeral, I thought about what a wonderful man he was, so I decided to compile a list of his good qualities. The list got longer the more I thought about its many positive qualities. They were big and small things, but they all added up to why I loved him so much.
I wish it had been designed and given to him while he was healthy, or at least while he was still alive. I know it would have meant the world to him. I hope my suggestion
