Dear Abby: 3/9/16

Man looking at gat porn may be more than merely curious

DEAR ABBY: I’ve been with my fiance for three years and I’m very much in love. A few months ago I asked to use his phone to look up something on the Internet because my battery had died. It opened up to a gay porn site! I was shocked and asked him if it was something he was looking at. He admitted that it was.

Couple sharing household should share expenses too

DEAR ABBY: I need some relationship advice. How do you handle household expenses with a partner? 

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 10 years. In all this time, he has never once split any of the expenses with me. I pay for everything. He does buy groceries, although not all of them. He also helps around the house and with my daughter.
