Prudie kicks it off on a light note this week: We’re all going to die someday, and the sky is scary. Then, onto your letters! My partner is worried that I’ll be giving up too much if we move across the country so he can take a rare opportunity.

My boyfriend proposed and now refuses to talk about our wedding. I haven’t told my friends I’m bisexual—am I in the closet? I didn’t expect to fall in love with someone else six months after my wife died—and now I’ve alienated my daughter. Finally, how do I deal with an annoying employee?
