Case 700

Absentee Parents|

Almost five years ago I was with a married man. I ended up pregnant and, when I gave him the news, he told me to get an abortion.... When my son was born, I notified the man and sent him a photo telling him that, because of being the father, I would give my son his surname. Two years later the man told me he wanted to meet his son, and two years after that [...]

Case 699

Romantic Relationships/Courtship (Deceipt/Distrust)|

I’ve been with my boyfriend for four years, but our relationship has been deteriorating because of his infidelities. A year ago, he met an older woman who promised to give him things like money, a business, and a car.

Case 698

Child Abuse / Rape|

In a video conference call that my sister, who is forty-nine years old, made to my brother and me and our parents, she blamed and called out our father for abusing her sexually, and our mother for being complicit from the time that she had told her about it when she was thirty. I’m asking God to resolve this situation fairly because I love all my family, and I’d like divine intervention for God to [...]

Case 694

Infatuation/Falling in Love|

I have dreamed of having a family. I never had parents. That has caused an emptiness in my heart. And that’s why, for me, marriage is very significant and lasts a lifetime. I have a boyfriend, but I don’t see that he is interested in getting married. Besides, he has a bad attitude. He doesn’t call me, he doesn’t write to me, and he blocks me on his social media. I feel like I’m wasting [...]
