BY NOW we all know that Josh Duggar, 27, first-born of the TLC network's "19 Kids and Counting" Duggar clan, has admitted to molesting five girls (four of them his sisters) over the course of a year when he was 14 and 15. Last week, he resigned from his job as executive director of FRC Action, the lobbying arm of the ultra-conservative Family Research Council. About five minutes later, TLC canceled repeat episodes of "19 Kids" and General Mills pulled its advertising. Here are my 19 thoughts about the scandal: 1. I feel bad for Josh Duggar's victims.

Testing and counseling for those at high risk for the AIDS virus began in the Personal Health Services portion of the health department in January, according to Jean Rabenau, supervisor of staff development. "I think the demand is growing slowly for all the AIDS services," Rabenau said. "It's not that we're being overwhelmed by numbers; it's just that we're increasing our service to the county.

It's called DHC, or Desktop Housing Counselor, and all 25 Philadelphia housing counseling agencies soon will be using it, thanks to Fannie Mae. The Federal National Mortgage Association, the nation's largest source of mortgage funds, developed the computer program and is donating copies of the software to the city-subsidized non-profits to help process the thousands of potential homebuyers they counsel each year. Serving these low- and moderate-income clients, who often have income or credit problems, is a time-consuming job that generates tons of paperwork - two things that DHC is designed to significantly reduce, said Barry Zigas, who heads Fannie Mae's housing impact division.

At a public hearing last night, board members presented details about the proposed center to parents and students. The Human Services Department has proposed establishing about 30 school centers throughout the state next year and has allocated a total of $6 million for the program.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for almost three years to a woman who refuses to share the same bed with me. It started on our honeymoon when, after having sex, she chose to sleep in a different bed whenever there were two beds in the room. She's in her late 40s and had never been married before. We have been intimate only twice in the last year. Moreover, she doesn't let me sit next to her while we watch TV, and there is no kissing, no touching, no affection of any kind, physical or verbal.

Question: I've been separated for a few months from my wife of 19 years and three kids. The separation stemmed from my infidelity - a mistake I made to run from my marital problems instead of to communicate, try to work through them, and take a stand for my happiness. It was cowardly, and I regret it deeply. We are in couple's counseling and both want to find a way to reconcile, but we are struggling to get there. She can't forgive me, and I am unable to convince her I am sorry enough without completely submitting and denying my authenticity.

DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend and I have been together for three years and have a 1-year-old daughter. Unfortunately, our fights have become more frequent now. She suggested counseling, which I agree with. However, she insists that I'm the one who is causing the problem and that I should go first. Sometimes, we fight about finances, since I work to support our family while she looks after our daughter. We are a mixed-race couple, and sometimes race comes into play. She accuses me of making demands on her because of my ethnicity (e.g., "You want an obedient partner because you're Chinese")

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: Is there a benefit to premarital counseling if the couple have no major problems - or, at least, aren't yet aware of them? I think I've seen a few times in your column that some people have recommended it in all instances, but I'm not sure how I would initiate that process, or suggest it to a fiance(e), when I don't have an issue in mind that I feel we need to discuss with a counselor. Any advice on when such counseling is worth doing, and how we get the ball rolling if it is?

DEAR ABBY: Thirty years ago when I was an Army officer, my wife "went crazy. " She had an affair and wound up getting pregnant. When I got out of the Army, she saw the man one time more before we moved and got pregnant again! We had a child together later. When I found out my eldest son didn't have the correct blood type, I confronted her and she admitted it. I then had all my children tested and realized only the last one was mine. I love the other two as well as my son, and I would not destroy his or the other boys' lives.

An anti-abortion group with no religious affiliation cannot claim an exemption from the Affordable Care Act requirement that employers provide employee health insurance covering contraception, a federal judge has ruled in Harrisburg. U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III found that Real Alternatives, a pregnancy and parenting counseling agency that advises women to carry pregnancies to full term and avoid abortions, has no right to an exemption from the ACA requirement, because it cites only moral objections to it and provides no religious basis for its position.
