Ask Amy: Wedding planning gets very awkward

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

My wife had our vehicle, a charge card for gas, lodgings and meals, as well as my blessings and cooperation.

She was happy, and so was I.

Life can seem very short. Many opportunities come but once – and then disappear.

Illness has no calendar for good times.

"Stuck" should get unstuck, tell her husband to take a hike, and see what life has in store for her.

I wish the girl I first saw at 18 were here for more "girls’ trips" – and me!

Dear Mark: I have a feeling that when you close your eyes, you still see your wife “in all of her summer beauty.” Thank you for this.
