Dear Abby: Ten years ago, I had an affair with a married man that resulted in a pregnancy and then a miscarriage. I was also married at the time. Pathology testing revealed that the child had a rare genetic disorder inherited on the paternal side. My husband’s genetic test indicated that he was not a carrier. The revelation led to my admission of the affair and our divorce. I didn’t tell the other man. His wife was unable to have children, so I didn’t think it would impact him. I recently found out he is divorced and remarried to a younger woman. I have no idea whether they plan to have children, but I’m torn about telling him he is a carrier for that life-threatening disorder. (click for more)

I’ve been thinking about the English language lately, mainly because it’s the only language I know. I’ve decided it needs a boost, so I’ve come up with a list of the 10 Most Beautiful Words. This was not an easy task, considering there are more than 470,000 entries in the Merriam-Webster Unabridged English Dictionary. But in a recent column I came up with my Top 10 Driving Irritations, and I whittled that down from a list much longer than a measly 470,000. We might not know it, but everyone has their favorite words. Whether we’re talking or writing, there’s a conscious or subconscious satisfaction in using certain words. When it comes out of the mouth, or when it’s typed onto a page, it just feels good. (click for more)

Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I both got divorced about the same time, but his took much longer to become final. It is finally over, so we have begun talking seriously about marriage and starting a family. During one of our conversations, he mentioned that his ex-wife doesn’t intend to change back to her maiden name. I was shocked because she took advantage of him financially and was emotionally abusive all during their marriage. They had no kids, so it has nothing to do with her wanting to share the same name with them. They were married only a few years, so she isn’t well established under that name, either. When I asked him why she wasn’t changing it, he told me she said his family was always nicer to her than her own. (click for more)

“Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today.” — “Groundhog Day” On or about Feb. 2, the pagans celebrated Imbolc, halfway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. Winter still reigned, but way far on the horizon was the green of spring, the beginning of hope. The high priestess wore a crown of candles to acknowledge that light was winning in the battle against shadow. The Christians turned this into Candlemas, a celebration of the Snowdrops, or Candlemas Bells, the first flower of the year. The priests handed out candles, and the congregation believed that the longer the candle, the longer the winter would be. (click for more)
