Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I now live in a party destination, and I regularly get family and friends visiting to experience the city. This includes "Kathy," who has been in a long-term relationship for seven years. When we were out, I came back from the bar to find Kathy making out with a guy who was rounding third base. I hated that she made me an accomplice to her cheating, and I ended up mostly breaking off the friendship. Now two years later, mostly reconciled, Kathy confronted me drunkenly at a birthday party for "treating her like a whore" and "making her feel bad for what she did. " It all came out that Kathy and her boyfriend had made their relationship open before her trip.

DEAR ABBY: I lived with my mother, who passed away recently. I invited my cousins over to the house for Thanksgiving. One of them invited a cousin-in-law I had never met. When I woke from a nap, the cousin-in-law was here and asked me about our walk-in bathtub, which means that while I was asleep on my mother's bed, she had entered my mother's bedroom and private bathroom. I was flabbergasted. She also asked to keep a program I showed her from Mom's service. I wanted to refuse (I still haven't sent programs to out-of-state friends and relatives and am unsure how many I may need)
