Dear Abby: My wife of 10 years keeps all kinds of secrets from me. We let her adult daughter, “Maude,” move in. Maude is 35 and has one daughter. I recently found out that Maude is pregnant again. I heard they had decided to “surprise me” with the news. (The father is the same guy as before.) I’m tired of being the third wheel and I think it’s time for me to call it quits. What do you think? — Stay Or Go In Connecticut

Dear Stay Or Go: I’m glad you asked. What I think is that you are outnumbered. Maude should be living on her own or with the father of her children. If I am reading between the lines correctly, you have allowed yourself to be stuck with the financial burden that Maude and her irresponsible boyfriend should be carrying. I also think it’s time you gave your wife an ultimatum — either Maude and her daughter move out or you will. Whichever option she chooses, your situation will improve.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.
