Question: My siblings and parents all live very close to one another in my home state. They see one another frequently and are very involved in one another's lives. My brother recently learned that his wife has been cheating on him, not for the first (or even second) time. When this happened before, he tried to stick with it and work it out for their children, but this time they have agreed divorce is the next step. They may maintain the facade until the end of the school year.

DEAR ABBY: I'm 17 and have been in a relationship since I was 13 with the same person on and off. I have been with him since my parents divorced, so you might say he has been my crutch for a long time. He makes it clear that, without him, I am an emotional mess. I spend every day isolated from friends and family, while he spends his time with his friends. (I'm not allowed to be with them.) If I'm out with a friend, it is a huge issue. I love him, and I don't want to break up, but it feels like I'm alone even when I'm with him. I'm sick of letting a man make me feel like he's my reason for being alive.

Pope Francis on Friday issued a much-anticipated document on family that overturns no major teachings of the Catholic Church, but calls on its clergy to be compassionate and to welcome divorced-and-remarried couples, gays, and those who live in an "imperfect manner. " The church and its clergy have been "wasting pastoral energy on denouncing a decadent world without proactively proposing ways to finding true happiness," Francis wrote in the document, titled "Amoris Laetitia ," or "The Joy of Love.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Four years ago, while waiting for our divorce to be finalized, I decided I'd start dating online and suggested she do the same. We were still friends, so I didn't think it was crossing any boundaries. My online dating efforts were met with peculiar results. All of the six women I connected with either stood me up or made excuses why they couldn't or wouldn't meet me in person. Out of frustration I began dating my wife again and we canceled the divorce proceedings.

An Orthodox rabbi from Lakewood, N.J., has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for orchestrating a conspiracy to extort religious divorces from unwilling husbands using beatings, stun guns, and an electric cattle prod. Rabbi Mendel Epstein, 70, appeared Tuesday for sentencing before U.S. District Judge Freda Wolfson in Trenton. In April, Epstein, dubbed "the Prodfather" by some in the media, was convicted by a jury of conspiracy related to the kidnappings and assaults on recalcitrant husbands.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: After almost two years of counseling, my husband and I decided this year we'd be happier apart. We've been married 22 years and have two adult girls. We are all in a good place. He and I will always be family, and we function well as parents and friends. For the last 15 years or so, I've been one of those people who sends out the Dreaded Christmas Letter. Only mine isn't dreaded. People look forward to it. Yes, really.

IT WAS PAINFUL, but it was time for a divorce. We had been together for decades, blissfully happy, devoted, sharing and caring. She supported me through dark periods, reduced my stress, helped me celebrate unlikely victories and commiserate after painful failures. She was always with me. Just before midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 9, I had my last cigarette. I divorced nicotine from my life. Well, not nicotine , as I am still on the patch. I will not vape nor suck on plastic cigarettes or straws because I've got to break the oral link.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My wife of 20-plus years says that she isn't getting emotional satisfaction from our relationship any longer and that I have to do something about this. This has come as a great surprise to me, but I'm willing to admit that, although I love her deeply, our routine may be just that, routine. But will just changing our routine get her to emotional satisfaction? Without a clearer understanding of it, I'm not sure what I am supposed to do. And I'll do anything.
