Happily Ever Asshole and Mild Kingdom

by Amy Alkon
Q: My husband of a year is the most selfish, inconsiderate, cold-shouldered man I’ve ever known. He’s 24; I’m 22. He behaved similarly when we were dating, but when he proposed, he made promises to treat me better, and I believed him. Well, we pretty much only do what he ...

Office Despot And Wane Man

by Amy Alkon
Q: I just started a new job. My boss and I were having a meeting, and he started asking me about my personal life — whether I have a boyfriend, who I live with. No biggie. He then began grilling me as to why I don’t have a boyfriend and whether I’ve ever had one.

Another Brick In The Wallow And Sum Girls

by Amy Alkon
