Dear Abby: I have been married to a wonderful man for six years and we’ve been together for 10. We bought a house a few years ago and since then our sex life has significantly decreased. I know the stress of being homeowners hasn’t helped our situation and over the last year I have felt like I’m falling out of love.

A few weeks ago, I ran into a man I dated before my husband and there was a spark between us that neither of us can deny. He broke my heart years ago, but I can’t shake this feeling of wanting — needing — to be with him. I can’t get him off my mind.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also know as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
