D EAR ABBY: My wife and I have been together for 10 years. As all couples do, we've had our ups and downs, but we love each other very much. Two months ago, we welcomed our first son into our family; we are overjoyed. Raising a newborn has its challenges because babies don't come with an owner's manual. Our communication has always been good, and we work hard in our relationship to keep it that way. When we disagree, we try not to fight in front of the baby or raise our voices.

Q: I HAVE A QUESTION for you, Steve and Mia: How many partners have you each had? Not that having 1,001 makes one more or less knowledgeable about sex and how to make a relationship work. I have danced a few dances in my life - in fact, I have turned down more women than most men dream of. Again, it does not prove anything. Hot sex lasts as long as one or the other person wants it to. And what is hot for one may not be for another. I am assuming that most of your readers are quite young and with limited experience, based on what I have read.

From a recent online discussion. Question: My friends and I are at a loss for how to help our good friend chill the hell out about finding a partner. It occupies an inordinate amount of her considerable brain space, and it shows. She's had two short but serious relationships in the 10 years I've known her, and both were mean man-babies. But she has had thousands of micro-relationships in her head with any guy who enters her orbit. There are new prospects every week, and she checks what little she knows about them against her spreadsheet of desired qualities in a guy. Her deal-breakers go way, way beyond what one typically applies to that term.

The tsunami of mergers announced last month - Aetna's purchase of Humana and Anthem's purchase of Cigna - is expected to transform the health insurance industry, if the deals survive antitrust scrutiny by regulators. The consolidation will create three national giants, including UnitedHealth Group Inc., each with more than $100 billion in annual revenue, and add to the pressure on smaller Blue Cross-Blue Shield operators to merge. But don't count Independence Blue Cross, the region's largest health insurer and a major Center City employer, among those on the ropes.

TORONTO - Throughout the months of speculation regarding where Cole Hamels will pitch the final three-plus guaranteed years of his contract, the Los Angeles Dodgers have often been mentioned as an apt trading partner for the Phillies. That remains the case in the final days leading to the highly anticipated trade deadline. But with the days passing until 4 p.m. Friday, the Texas Rangers - reportedly along with the Dodgers the front-runners to land Hamels - might be the ideal team for the Phillies to trade their 31-year-old ace. Despite entering the week 47-50, 7.5 games behind the American League West-leading Los Angeles Angels and 4.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins in the crowded wild-card race, the Rangers could acquire Hamels with an eye toward next season.
