Dear Abby,

I am a 60-year-old woman who is married to a man who
acts like he hates me. In public, he pretends he
loves me and talks about how wonderful I am. But in
private, he shakes his finger in my face and calls me
the "B" word. He constantly tells me how ugly I am
without make-up. I've tried everything, including a
face-lift, botox treatments, and a chin tuck. I even
went on a diet and lost 20 pounds.

He left his job a few years ago after having an affair
with a woman in his office. He hasn't even looked for
another job. We haven't slept together since I
confronted him about the affair. He denied it, of
course, but everybody knew it. It was humiliating. I
believe he is still messing around.

While we both want to sell this house, we argue
constantly about when to put it on the market. The
house we want will be available in a few months. My
husband wants to put our house on the market now. I
think we should wait a while. He has already started
collecting boxes and packing up his stuff. Do you
think he is planning to leave me?

Dear Worried in NY:
I doubt it. He wants to move back into the White
House as much as you do.
