ARIES. (March 20 - April 19): People aren't coming through for you as expected, but were you clear about what you wanted? It doesn't hurt to ask again – and this time nicely. (click for more)

Dear Abby: My husband has always had anger issues. Recently, they have progressed from targeting inanimate objects to targeting me. A few weeks ago, when he got upset, he punched the navigation screen in my car out. Then he proceeded to grab my hair and slammed my head into the car window (it didn’t break, but my head hurt for more than a week). He apologized later, but I can’t forgive him. Maybe I never will. What’s worse, I haven’t been able to bring myself to leave and don’t really know how to. Is this behavior a deal breaker? Stuck in Minnesota Dear Stuck: Yes, this is absolutely a deal breaker. Do not minimize what he did to you. I’m sorry you didn’t go to the emergency room after it happened. Each time your husband attacks will be worse — increasingly so — until he maims or kills you. For your safety you must get out of there, and the sooner the better. For directions on how to safely make your exit, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The toll-free phone number to call is 800-799-7233 or visit www.thehotline.org and a counselor there will direct you. Dear Abby: My 5-year-old daughter, “Maude,” is afraid of large dogs. In the past, my husband has publicly scolded her when she cowered away from them. A friend of our family has a dog that Maude is especially hesitant around, and my daughter recently confided that she no longer wants to go over to this friend’s house because of it. She made me promise not to tell her father why. When I told him privately about our conversation, he rolled his eyes and accused our daughter of having a “weak” mentality. Is he being unreasonable, or is it just me? Phrustrated in Philly Dear... (click for more)

Dear Abby: My wife died recently. We were very happy. We had six beautiful children and were married for 58 wonderful years. It has been a month since her funeral, and I have been able to cope somewhat with her loss. But suddenly, a couple of days ago, I experienced a tremendous wave of grief and thought I would go crazy with not being able to see her again. I began to be afraid I’d have to be hospitalized, perhaps in a psychiatric ward and medicated. But my son told me this condition (everything “hitting” you in a delayed reaction) has been documented in a majority of cases. Is this true? Grieving Texan Dear Grieving Texan: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wife. I am sure you feel her loss profoundly. Not everyone grieves in the same way. Some feel numb and can’t understand why they can’t feel anything after a loved one dies. Others feel the loss immediately and can’t sleep, eat or stop crying. Your son is absolutely right. What happened to you is not unusual. If feelings of being out of control persist, however, you should discuss them with your doctor. Dear Abby: One of our in-laws recently confessed about a long-term affair. The details are widely known. The closest family members, and especially the couple’s adult children, are shocked, devastated and angry. No one wants to even talk to the cheater. The aggrieved spouse wants to keep the marriage together. It is hard to imagine that time will heal these wounds. How can my wife and I support the aggrieved spouse and the devastated children? Should we try to re-establish ties with the cheater? If so, do we just talk about the weather, or do we acknowledge the elephant in the room? Trying to Do What’s Right Dear Trying: If you...
