"My boyfriend and I have been together a little over 8 years and we have been talking about marriage for the past year. It was never a rush for either of us, however, recently I have felt like we needed to make the step. I casually brought the topic up during dinner last week and my boyfriend became defensive. He is rarely hot-headed and never really raises his voice, but this night in particular was so much different. He began screaming about me not being happy or satisfied with anything he does and accused me of trying to change him. Me being the type to avoid altercations at all cost, I quickly changed the subject and called it a night. He nor I have talked about the incident and I am kind of nervous to bring it up. Neither of us has ever said we didn't want marriage or was against it, and I don't get where his anger stemmed from so I admit my feelings are hurt. Am I not good enough to be a wife? How should I handle this situation or is it even worth handling? We have had a good 8 years and I don't want to ruin it because I'm overreacting or making a bigger deal out of something minor." -Rosalie

Hey Rosalie! Let me start by saying you are good enough to be a wife and you do not have to lower your standards for him or anyone else. I believe that men sometimes entertain conversations and thoughts just to get through them and if this is the case, then I would say your boyfriend reacted the way he did simply because he never took the thought seriously. He is most likely content in the state that your relationship resides, and the realization f your desires came as a surprise. I would not pacify my feelings because by doing so you are denying yourself the life and happiness you desire. Bring the conversation back up and do not sugarcoat it because you can only be taken as seriously as you present yourself. If marriage is your desire then go after it. If it's not what he desires then you must ask yourself if that is a sacrifice you are willing to make for your future and this relationship or if it's time for you to just part ways. Sometimes people are meant to be in our lives for a season and we emotionally keep them around past the expiration date. That's something you must figure out as an individual. I truly hope you can work this out because you both deserve the happiness you seek. -SSS

Q&A: Spouse Debates Court As He Fights To See His Daughter After Girlfriend Moves Into Hotel With New Boyfriend

"My ex-girlfriend moved out of our apartment into a hotel room after she received her money from taxes. She said that she wasn't happy and felt we needed to separate. Against my objections, she packed her and our daughter's clothes and left. Since her departure, there has been constant bickering over when I can spend quality time with my child. I have kept my composure and tried my best to keep tensions calm, however, a mutual friend of ours recently told me that she has a new boyfriend that she has been spending quality time with. I brought the topic up to her, and she started calling me jealous and so on. My only point is that she has a man in a hotel room staying with my child. I feel as a father, I have a right to question these actions. I responded by assuring her that I was not concerned with whom she wished to be with, but I would like to care for my child when he is around until I knew him better and so forth. I also brought up the fact that for her to be so comfortable with the new fellow, she must have known him for a longer period of time than said. Which in my mind would explain her recent departure. She became extremely upset and began whopping and hollering about me wasting her life and wanting to control her. Since the incident, I have only spoken to my daughter over the phone and have yet to see her. I don't want to cause problems for our family. What can I do without involving the courts?" -Xavier.

Sibling Relationship Ruined After Brother Throws Miscarriage in Sister's Face Behind New Girlfriend

"My brother's new girlfriend is highly unaccepted by my family for multiple reasons. One is that he ruined his childhood friendship and highly respectable relationship to be with this person. The female has a five-year-old daughter and is very financially unstable. I watch as my brother who is not the child's father wakes up to get the baby dressed, fully bathed, and fed while her mother sleeps past noon. On multiple occasions, the child is absent from school and my brother will miss work to stay home and accompany the two of them. What baffled me is not only does he lay out the child's clothes but her mother's as well. Along with her toothbrush and etcetera. For the entirety of their relationship, they have been living pillar to post, and my brother has even started lying and hustling money from family members who are growing tired. His girlfriend constantly spends money she receives on marijuana, which she freely uses in front of the child before anything else. I expressed how this was not his job and that he was bringing himself down for a woman trying to take care of them while she had no initiative to care for herself or her child. In response, my brother reiterated the fact that I could not have kids and went so far as to call me jealous and say that it was the reason I miscarried. I am extremely hurt however my family is saying I should just calm down. Am I wrong for saying that my hands are washed with him? " -Candace.
