Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband and I have been together for more than a decade and have two sweet, young children. After months of a nagging feeling and begging my husband to tell me the truth, he finally admitted this weekend that he has visited prostitutes and massage parlors for years. The last year has been a sad, miserable time. He was emotionally retreating out of shame and guilt. The quiet tension has taken a toll on us and our children. He can get therapy to heal his addiction, but it won't be with me by his side as his wife.

Javien Elliott was giving away six inches and 61 pounds to Carson Wentz when Tampa Bay's fourth-string, undrafted rookie cornerback found himself confronted by the onrushing quarterback early in the fourth quarter of Thursday's exhibition opener. Wentz had momentum on his side as he executed an option bootleg to the left, a lot of momentum, and had already picked up five of the six yards needed for a first down when Elliott realized his coaches would expect him to do something about this.

In his fiction, Jay McInerney chronicles New York City life. From the coked-up wannabes he portrayed in his now-classic first novel, Bright Lights, Big City , to the titans of various industries who are now a good three decades older in his new and eighth novel, Bright, Precious Days (which is out on Tuesday), McInerney gives us characters and dialogue that could happen only in Manhattan, and we love him all the better for the critical lens he shines on these very particular island inhabitants.

Throughout his week in Las Vegas earlier this month, Jay Wright hustled from coaches meetings to team meals to practices, keeping company with the power people in USA Basketball, and not once did he experience a moment alone with the most powerful of them all. Wright spent those seven days in the desert as an assistant coach with the USA select team, the group of 23 young NBA players charged with preparing the U.S. national men's team for the...

As Hillary Clinton formally becomes the first woman to win a major-party presidential nomination, I am flooded with gratitude for my mother and my grandmother, the sort of humble women whose shoulders Clinton and so many who have broken barriers stand on. They are women denied opportunities by the conditions of their times, but who nonetheless fought for a better future for their children. At the turn of the last century, my grandmother Margaret Lynch, a first-generation immigrant, attended Hunter School in Manhattan.

Or ever get into a good college? - Questioning Teen DEAR QUESTIONING: Sending nude photos at any age, especially if someone is underage, is extremely dangerous to both the sender and recipient, and I hope you will never do it again.

SAN DIEGO - Dylan Cozens clutched the black bat in his hands like a toothpick and unleashed on a batting-practice fastball. Dozens of scouts watched from the stands Sunday afternoon at Petco Park, where Cozens displayed power to all fields before the annual Futures Game, a showcase for the game's top prospects. His mere presence is arresting; Cozens, a former defensive end, is almost always the largest player on the field at 6-foot-6, 235 pounds. The 22-year-old lefthanded hitter has slugged his way to prominence while playing for double-A Reading, the team with the best record in organized baseball.

Who's on first? That's a question Phillies fans have rarely had to ask since Ryan Howard arrived in the middle of the 2005 season and blasted his way to the National League rookie of the year award. Sure, there was that time at the start of the 2012 season when Howard was sidelined by a leg infection after undergoing offseason surgery to repair the torn Achilles tendon that brought the 2011 season to a crumbling conclusion. Charlie Manuel tried to temporarily replace the Big Piece with Ty Wigginton, Laynce Nix, John Mayberry, and Jim Thome, but all were fruitless attempts.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, "Paul," and I have been together for five years. We want to get married, but his mother is Catholic, and she doesn't approve because I am a Native Alaskan, which from her perspective makes me a pagan. Paul hasn't attended church or held any Catholic views for many years, but he won't tell his mother, because he's afraid it would devastate her. She has told me we are living in sin, that our marriage could cause him to be excommunicated, and that if we have children, they'll be bastards who will go to hell.
