She's always making new friends, and she works at keeping relationships with high school and college friends alive. But three things have been bothering me.</p> <p>Issue No. 1: Several years ago, I found a man's cellphone number in my wife's cellphone. They had dated once many years ago. I asked her if she'd been calling him, and she said no. Later that night, I looked up old phone records and found they had talked on the phone many times, including one call the morning after she lied to me. </p> <p>I confronted her, and she apologized for lying. She said she was worried about my health and did it to spare my anxiety over nothing. <p>Updated: Fri Jan 24, 2020</p> a740ae3a59e62d1316b8e04e5d5fc103 And Now You Know the Rest of the Story for 01/17/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/01/20/and-now-you-know-the-rest-of-the-story Fri, 17 Jan 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p>We recently met Jason and Andrea. They were the lawyers whose relationship turned from professional to personal after Jason's wife died.</p> <p>They first met over 30 years ago, when they were on opposite sides of a case. Jason says he won the case. Andrea says she doesn't remember anything about it.</p> <p>"I was a young lawyer working for someone else and hadn't spent a lot of time with the case before going to trial. My impression of Jason was that he was smart, professional and nice."<p>Updated: Fri Jan 17, 2020</p> fe2de0f896d94b311992bbd70e7ce5f7 Once Again, Seinfeld Said It Best for 01/10/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/01/20/once-again-seinfeld-said-it-best Fri, 10 Jan 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Today's column proves one thing: Men and women can find each other anywhere &#8212; at a car wash, at an airport and even at a funeral!</p> <p>KYLE: Jeff, a friend, mentor and all-around great guy, died an untimely death. He was such a well-known guy that a two-day wake was necessary. While at the second night's gathering, I met Luann, who had known Jeff from business dealings. While Jeff's body lay in a casket 10 feet away from us, we kept commiserating about how much he was going to be missed. </p> <p>One thing led to another, and we exchanged phone numbers. She called me at work a few days later, and our first date was to a Tim McGraw concert. Luann and I dated off-and-on for the next four years.<p>Updated: Fri Jan 10, 2020</p> 6038d9a37d83938d059c2a67d2f6888c What to Save, What to Keep for 01/03/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/01/20/what-to-save-what-to-keep Fri, 03 Jan 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Nobody bothers to fix things anymore. When they break, we toss them. Your computer is acting funky? Get a new one. Your washing machine is doing the cha-cha? Get a new one. Your TV is on the fritz? Get a new one before the Super Bowl or "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returns. </p> <p>But what about your family? If it's broke, do you repair it or replace it?<p>Updated: Fri Jan 03, 2020</p> 512dfadfc1104306bdffd09087537bc8 Three's a Crowd for 12/27/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/12/19/threes-a-crowd-07bc3 Fri, 27 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>A few months after his wife died, Jason got a call from Andrea.</p> <p>They're both lawyers &#8212; she specializes in family law &#8212; and had met many years ago when they'd tried a small case against each other.<p>Updated: Fri Dec 27, 2019</p> 7051eab6377930fd881a2f70388c1a93 Santa's Not the Only One Who Needs to Check His List for 12/20/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/12/19/santas-not-the-only-one-who-needs-to-check-his-list Fri, 20 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>When they met, Nicole was 29.

We've been married for six years and have a 1-year-old daughter. We have a fairly good marriage, except for one major problem: his need to go to a bar with his friends. On weeknights, he'll leave at 8 p.m. and be home by 1 a.m. On the weekends, he'll be home around 3 a.m. I've asked him to come home earlier, but he refuses.</p> <p>I understand that guys need to be with guys to chill out, watch the game, have a few beers, play pool, etc.<p>Updated: Fri Dec 13, 2019</p> e215af519b88f595314b2b861748cef0 Sometimes in Vino, There's Just Vino for 12/06/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/tales-from-the-front/12/19/sometimes-in-vino-theres-just-vino Fri, 06 Dec 2019 00:00:00
