Dear Jennifer, My fiancé had sex before me and I can’t get over it. ~Help
Dear Jennifer, I’m engaged to a Godly man that I love dearly but I can’t get over the fact that he’s had sex with a past girlfriend. I am a virgin and have been saving myself for marriage. I cannot get over the fact that he hasn’t saved himself for me. It really bothers me that he can’t give me his virginity when I’m supposed to be giving him mine on our wedding night. How is it supposed to be special to him if he’s done this before? ~Help
Mother-In-Law is too involved!
Dear Jennifer, My husband and I have been married for a year and have our first daughter on the way. We have been together for 6 years. We don’t fight much but his mother won’t let him go. He is an only child. It feels like his mother wants to also be his wife and still have a handle on his life. She can’t seem to let him be a grown man and be a husband. She has come between us a couple times. His mother and I did not really have a relationship until we got engaged. I’m not sure how else to tell him his mother needs to back off. I have told him it feels like he is more married to her than me and it’s supposed to be us who work out the problems and if we can’t figure it out than we ask our parents. I tell him I feel as if he doesn’t put me first, he puts his mother over me. I want him to have a relationship with her but also know he’s married now and has a wife. ~Shelly

I know, personally, the people that have hurt me the most were spiritual guides in disguise - they came into my life to teach me invaluable lessons. Even abusive people - they strengthened me, molded me, pushed me, taught me a resilience I couldn’t learn anywhere else, and. . .
