Tell Me About It

Dear Carolyn: I am wary of dating guys whose parents are divorced. My parents and most of my friends’ parents are happily married. I think people whose parents are divorced may have a different sense of marriage — i.e., that it doesn’t have to be for a lifetime. I think it does. I basically have no idea how to deal with someone whose parents are divorced because it’s foreign to me. So, how do I? — D.C.

Answer: As with any unknown animal, you approach slowly, with your eyes cast down in a nonthreatening way. Offer a biscuit if you have one.

That’s what my dog thinks, anyway. She filled in for me while I was off retching.
