Marriage (Indifference/Expression of Affection)|

My wife and I have been married for six years and have two small children. For some time now I have not been giving my wife the attention that she deserves.

I forgave her because I realize that what happened was my [...]

Case 712

Step-parents|

My stepson doesn’t get along with our son, though they both have the same father. My stepson constantly tells his brother that he doesn’t want to play with him, to get away from him.... He even went to the extreme of telling him that he wished him dead so that he could be an only child. That was the breaking point for me, and I asked his father to not bring him to our home [...]

Case 711

Infatuation/Falling in Love|

I am twenty-four and my relationship with my girlfriend ended recently. She was always complaining because I lost my job and didn’t have money to take her out. I tried asking her to do inexpensive things together, but she said no. She made me feel like a loser because I couldn’t find a job, and it felt even worse when we broke up. I feel like I am not able to have a relationship with [...]

Jealousy / Envy|

My husband cheated on me with a number of women, so I left him. After twelve years of being divorced, I met a man that is several years older than I am.... He is a good man with a big heart and many great qualities, but he is extremely jealous. He imagines things and accuses me as if I had done those things. I have explained to him that I detest infidelity... because I have [...]

I am thirty-one. I was working at a job with a toxic environment that caused me to suffer from depression and chronic anxiety.... So I resigned and was out of work for two weeks.

I dread reading my emails for fear that there will be a negative message [...]

Case 708

In-laws|

Six months ago, I married a man who loves me and respects me.... We get along well, but I have noticed that, for everything he is going to do, he calls his mother to let her know.... He tells her absolutely everything, from what we’re having for dinner to what time he gets up in the morning. And if he doesn’t answer her messages, she gets upset with him.... We visit my mother-in-law every Sunday, [...]

Case 707

Marriage (Conflicts/Insults)|

I have been married for fourteen years. A few months ago, I discovered some messages between my wife and her ex-boyfriend. He asked her if she remembered when they were dating, and she responded that she remembered it as good times.   According to the Bible, that was adultery. When I confronted her, she tried to deny it, but later she admitted it. I managed to convince her to block her ex-boyfriend on social media, [...]

Case 706

Parental Responsibility|

I have never gotten married nor had children of my own, but I take care of my nieces and nephews as if they were my children. That is because their parents are irresponsible and love to party. The father is an alcoholic, and the mother doesn’t have the least bit of affection for them. Neither of them takes care of the basic needs of the children, such as their education, housing, and food.... They are [...]

Case 705

Romantic Relationships/Courtship (Uncertainty/Doubt)|

Two and a half months ago, I met my boyfriend, and everything was beautiful. But his attitude suddenly changed, and since then he has treated me very badly. He told me that he would change, but now... he blames me for everything that happens, even though I believe I haven’t done anything wrong. I want to understand him because I love him.... I’d like for you to tell me what to do to help him [...]
