Dear Dr. Hedda:   I’m sure you’ve heard this problem before.  It’s my mother-in-law.    Carol and I have been married for 12 years.  We have two wonderful children who are 7 an 10. She’s a stay at home Mom.   Her mother doesn’t like me.  Hasn’t from the get go.  Never been that warm and loving mother-in-law we all wish for.  Instead she slanders me to...

Dear Dr. Hedda, There is a lot of controversy about the young show biz couple Rihanna and Chris Brown. They split after he beat her up over a year or more ago and now they’re back together and it looks like they may be heading to the alter. What do you think their chances are for a successful marriage? Is it possible for someone like Chris to change? Is she too blind to realize the reality...

While you may want to stay in bed with your hunny, the 9-5 grind is a part of our Monday-Friday routine. Finding a job you truly love can be hard and a position with urgent priorities can put stress on any relationship. Competition and working towards career goals can actually be quite healthy in the scheme of love, by supporting each other in decisions and dreaming big for the future this can act as a point of growth. This definitely sounds easier than it actually is… so if your partners on the road or you work overtime on the regular...

Dear Dr. Hedda   Jeff and I have been together since our senior year in college.  Luckily we both found jobs in the same city.  We’ve been living together for a little over three years.   He tells me he loves and I believe him.  But, he’s never mentioned marriage.  I’ve met his family and he has met mine.   Last weekend we had a wonderful loving evening.  It was perfect. ...

Dear Dr. Hedda     After twenty years of marriage, my husband left me for another woman.   I didn’t know anything about this until he told me. He said they have been in love for over a year. She is about my age, not any prettier or smarter than me.  What did I do wrong.? My heart is broken and I am crying all the time.    My friends and family have all been telling me bad things about him that I didn’t know before, but I still want him back.    What can I do to make this better?   Carrol.   Dear Carrol :   Abandonment...

Dear Dr. Hedda: I’ve been having an affair with a wonderful man for three years. He is married but tells me that his wife is an invalid in a wheelchair for quite some time and they haven’t had a sexual relationship for over ten years. He won’t leave her because she is so ill. I can’t call him, email or write to him because she may find out about us. And in a strange way I admire his feelings for her. Yet we only get to see each other a few hours a week. And they are wonderful hours. I recently joined a professional...

photo credit: Adam Foster | Codefor Dear Dr. Hedda,   I’ve been living with the same man for the past 24 years.  I think we have a great relationship and many of our friends think we are married, but we’re not.  I’m 54 and Edward is 61.  I’ve been thinking that it might be a good idea for us to marry but I’m hesitant to bring up the subject because Edward has always...
