Ask the Advice Goddess

By Amy Alkon
I married a domineering man 20 years my senior. We have two college-age kids. I've spent the past 22 years (half my life) navigating his ill-temperedness and high expectations, and my life is often chaotic and unhappy. For nine months, I've been infatuated with my super-hot 25-year-old co-worker, "Dax."

Seven months ago, when I met my boyfriend, I had no idea he had so many female friends. I'm 26; he's 30. I understand having opposite-sex friends to get perspective on dating, but he's like one of their girlfriends.

The guy I've sorta been seeing travels around making videos for an extreme sports company but lives two hours away in the mountains. We met through a mutual friend, went to dinner and then had sex.

I met this man, and it was instant attraction. I'm a 40-year-old woman with my own place, a car and a good job, and he's an ex-convict who served four years in prison for selling meth.

For years, a group of us girls has gone camping, to dinner, to concerts, etc. Our husbands do their own thing together while we hang out. When they bring a new guy into their circle, they seem to think we should automatically accept his female partner. We normally do because we're nice like that.

What is an appropriate amount of togetherness time for a couple? My 9-year-old son spends half the week with me, plus every other weekend. My girlfriend of a year wasn't happy with only the other half of my time, so she started joining my son and me.

My boyfriend of two years is best friends with his ex. During their 14-year relationship, he says they had a codependency, becoming each other's social world. They were still roommates when we started dating, and she refused to even let me into their house.

I'm in love, and I just said yes to marrying the man of my dreams. We've only known each other for two months, but we're in the Peace Corps. You really see the core of a person when conditions are not so comfy.

I've been separated from my wife for three years, but I find myself craving her. I say "crave" because I don't think I ever really loved her. We only got together 15 years ago because she asked me out.

I'm in love. This person makes me feel like a shaken-up Coke bottle ready to explode with happiness! But not even my therapist understands. She wants to hand me pills for the problem.
