I lent a family heirloom to a friend. Now she’s going to burn it in honor of her deceased child. Can I ask for it back? “Nope!” says Prudence.

Then, author Saladin Ahmed joins Mallory to advise on your questions: Can I delay my breakup for financial gain? My partner won’t stop waking me up for trivial reasons! How do I get my Trump-supporting roommate to quit crashing my parties? I don’t want my “ethnic” in-laws to watch my baby! And I found out my best friend slept with my husband before he died—should I confront her?
