DEAR ABBY: I am ashamed to admit this, but years ago I had an affair with a married man. His wife had no idea, but all of his friends knew about it. She recently left him because she met someone else, and he’s not only bad-mouthing her, but also using it against her in their divorce.

Black Friday comes now: I have found three “early Black Friday” offers on products I have highly recommended the past few months. If you were looking for a better deal when you first read about them, now is your chance!

Sometimes talent is passed down through generations, and sometimes, unfortunately, it’s health challenges such as obesity and addiction. A new study published in Translational Psychiatry explains how choices made during pregnancy and breastfeeding affect the health of future generations.

Q: We have two phones and two tablet computers using our home Wi-Fi network. Lately all the devices have been getting a “your connection is not private” warning when going to some secure websites (they have “https” addresses) that sell airline or entertainment tickets. I use the Google Chrom…

Let’s face it, closets can be messy! One of the main culprits often relates to a lack of proper organization. The key to a well-organized space is for everything to be in place and to have a place.

Dreaming about honeymooning in Europe might conjure images of Santorini suites with private plunge pools, or swanky beachside hotels in Cannes, but these vacations are undeniably pricey. For couples on a stricter budget, there’s no need to sacrifice a gorgeous European getaway. Below, we’ve …
