I'm not sure what to do. My husband recently sold his business because he wanted to spend more time at home with the kids and to look after his sick elderly father (who lives in a flat on the ground floor of our home). I work from home full time, but it still feels like I do all the housework, child-raising, and act as the primary carer for his dad. He is trying to start an online business bu...

Hi, I'm hoping you can help me. I'm a Christian pastor, and there is a woman in my congregation who is my age, and single. I'm interested in her, and want to ask her out on a date.

I met this guy May 2021 and we started hanging out. He started pursuing me after a couple of months and I was upfront about my situation at the time but he never disclosed his side. We then started dating end of October 2021. I found out he had been talking to a girl he had fling with early 2021 which was okay with me until he started being shady about it. I later found out that a day before w...

Myself and my partner have put up with years of my sister in law doing ridiculous things that have cause us hurt or anger. She recently met a man and they've been going fast in sense of house babies etc. He seemed nice and we all got along fine. However in recent weeks they came to my partner (her brother) and demanded help with something in their personal life. They didn't listen to his...
