    Holiday Blues

    Dear Dr. Diana, Last year, the holidays were a time of great sadness for me.  It was the first Christmas and New Year that I had experienced on the heels of a terrible divorce.  I was in love with my husband and didn’t want the divorce.  A couple of months ago I started feeling better than I had...

    Politica and Marriage: Part II

    Dear Dr. Diana, I read your recent column about political differences in a couple.

  • Torn between my guys

    Dear Dr. Diana, My 16-year-old son moved out a few months ago to live with his dad who never paid child support and was barely around. My son told us he was moving out with a nasty text.  My husband (his stepdad) and I were angry and didn’t let him come and get his stuff at first.  Recently, my...

  • Is insecurity a reg flag?

    Dear Dr. Diana, Having been divorced once, I’m afraid of making the same mistake twice.  My girlfriend is living with me and we’ve been talking about getting married but I’m not sure it’s a good idea.  She has an insecurity complex and no matter what I do to reassure her, she is very clingy and...
