I don't know about Jack, but I haven't had sex with my wife in four years. She has gradually ballooned in size and is now at least 100 pounds overweight. There are no physical reasons for her to be so heavy. It is simply a lack of self-discipline. She loves to eat and denies herself nothing.<p>Updated: Sun Jun 28, 2020</p> e5207ea64b5437e7a888681a07648aec Classic Ann Landers for 06/21/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/06/20/classic-ann-landers-fa938 Sun, 21 Jun 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

While I agree this is not the easiest work in the world, I feel privileged to be a nurse because I can make a difference in the lives of people when they need it most. I am honored to be a member of this noble profession and am sure there are thousands of others like me. &#8212; Becky in Charleston, S.C.<p>Updated: Sun Mar 29, 2020</p> 5770bbc5cb6fd4ecb4a19bf769dee906 Classic Ann Landers for 03/22/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/20/classic-ann-landers-2c762 Sun, 22 Mar 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

His mother-in-law, "Edna," used her granddaughter's name to get phone service, and then "Tiffany," the granddaughter, wound up $500 in debt. She filed charges against Grandma for fraud. You said, "Relatives don't do that to one another." Ann, Tiffany HAD to file fraud charges to get the negative credit removed from her report. Paying it off without disputing the charges would still cause credit problems for the girl.<p>Updated: Sun Mar 22, 2020</p> 6e8a374b3694a7bde8e163642a9a8ba6 Classic Ann Landers for 03/15/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/20/classic-ann-landers-dd1b8 Sun, 15 Mar 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.
