I’m a lonely, married housewife with two children. My husband doesn’t pay attention to me. He comes home from work and barely acknowledges me. If supper isn’t on the table, then he gets angry, He doesn’t understand how hard I work, taking care of the house and kids. At the end of the day, I want some affection from my husband. Am I asking too much?
The answer is in your signature. If you greet your husband while looking homely, it isn’t any wonder why he ignores you. Your hard-working husband deserves to come home to a tidy house and a freshly groomed wife. Make sure you put on nice make-up and a pretty dress before meeting your husband at the door with a kiss, a drink, and the evening newspaper.

I want to go back to college and finish my degree. When my husband and I got married, we agreed I would quit and work to pay his way through medical school. Now he’s a doctor and is at the hospital at all hours taking care of his patients. I believe it’s my turn now, but my husband won’t hear of it. He doesn’t understand. Should I give up my dream of being a teacher?
Dreaming in Detroit
It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee. You are too old to go back to college. I agree with your husband on this one. If you have extra time on your hands, maybe you can do some volunteer work at the local school. That would help quench your thirst to teach little ones while still being home ready to meet your husband’s needs.

My husband comes home late every night and he smells like French perfume. I’ve done everything to try to entice him. I even met him at the door with nothing on but my sexy black nightie. He didn’t even notice. He just asked me if dinner was ready. I’m thinking about getting a divorce. What should I do?
You need to keep trying. Don’t give up. I suggest you both go to couple’s counseling. If he won’t go, go alone.

My youngest of five children just moved out to go to college. I’m all alone. It’s at least another ten years before my husband will even think of retiring. I want to go on vacations and have fun with him now before it’s too late. Please help.
It’s time to live your life. Leave the old fuddy-duddy at home and go on the trip with a group of friends. Have you considered going back to college? More and more college freshmen are older women who want a chance to live out their dreams. Tell your husband this is what you want to do.

My husband came home last month and told me he has a new girlfriend, our children’s 18 year-old nanny. I told him it was me or her. He said he wanted both of us. I’ve been married to the same man for over 20 years. How do I get the courage to leave the love of my life?
Go to your divorce attorney, do not pass go, however do collect $200 and everything else you can get out of this lying, cheating, scumbag! This man is lower than a dung beetle. Pack up those kids and never look back. I want to suggest some other things you could do with a sharp butcher knife, but my editors advised me against those ideas.
