Dear Abby: My husband ‘cancels’ me any time I try to start a conversation
DEAR ABBY: My spouse “cancels” me, and I am no longer willing to accept feeling devalued. How do I convince my spouse this is detrimental to our relationship, or is getting through to him even possible?

DEAR ABBY: More than a year ago, I heard my co-worker, whom I consider a friend, talking to another co-worker (who is a gossip) about my belly.

Dear Abby: Teen feels betrayed as parents plan an adults-only trip to Europe
I accept that they’re a married couple and occasionally want to travel without the rest of their family.

That effort not only led Decatur to a three-set win (25-12, 25-15, 25-18), it also caught the attention of high school sports fans across the region. Hall made her varsity debut as a freshman on a Decatur team that saw its season end with a loss to eventual state champ Mendon in the Division 4 district finals, but her role on that team is far from where she finds herself now. “She’s really smart about what she’s doing, and her mentality is, ‘I don’t really have to always hit it as hard as I can, but I can be smart about it. “This year, she’s really stepped up as far as being a leader,” he said. “That’s the thing that I need her to really, really excel at.mlive.com
