Ask Amy: Husband says wife must not roam from home

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Tell her! Say, “I think I’m not ‘supposed’ to feel this way, but – honestly – when you duplicate my purchases, I notice it and … it bothers me.”

Dear Amy: My wife and I are planning our anniversary celebration for the end of July, with more than 100 expected guests from nearby cities and a few from out of state on our invite list.

When should we send invitations?

– Wondering

Dear Wondering: July can be a busy month for people who may already be scrambling to put their summer plans together.

Send a “Save the Date” email now, noting the particulars and asking people to put this on their calendars.


Send your invitation in late-May or early June; this will give everyone several weeks to RSVP.


(You can email Amy Dickinson at or send a letter to Ask Amy, P.O. Box 194, Freeville, NY 13068. You can also follow her on Twitter @askingamy or Facebook.)
