DEAR ABBY: Punctuality is important to me. My husband has many great qualities, but punctuality is not one of them. We have been married 20-plus years and, after many discussions, have not been able to come to agreement on this. We are late to church almost every Sunday and to most parties and family events.

The close family connection began between Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip due to the fact they encountered each other in several occasions in their early years. By the idle of the 1940s, they were seeing each other often and strong hints of romance was in the air.

DEAR ABBY: After 40 years of marriage, I just found out my husband has been having an emotional affair, in addition to an actual girlfriend he had 15 years ago. I forgave him the last time. This time, he has only said he is wrong, but he hasn’t offered an apology, nor is he remorseful.

But nobody should be goin’ thru life sittin’ on ‘em.”
