Cindy says: I love Tom, and this sounds so petty, but his habit of chewing with his mouth open is driving me crazy. I can hardly stand to eat with him. Is there a way for me to not let silly little peeves like this get in the way of our relationship?
An old classmate “friended” me on Facebook, but I don’t want to accept. High school wasn’t my favorite time. Is there a way to do this without being really rude?
Q. We were invited to a friend’s wedding and were told on the invitation that our young children were not included. I think weddings are the way we model family values – should we just boycott the wedding?
Q. My kids fight me about getting dressed up for Mass – I think the girls should wear dresses and the boys should wear dress pants. They think clean jeans are fine. Now that they are teens, the battle is getting worse.
Just a few months before our wedding, my husband and I attended a retreat for engaged Catholic couples.
