This would be a good project for a graduate student in sociology. ...Read more

Is it love or fear?: It is indeed a difficult situation. We all want a trouble-free life, but there is no such thing. I would definitely talk with him about the issue and express your concerns, and maybe during this process you may find solution to help your man and his teen. A meaningful relationship is a 2-way street, a give-and-take, a compromise between the two to make things work. Communication is key. Good luck. ...Read more

Let her know that keeping her happy is the most important thing to u & she'll likely honor & obey. ...Read more

Is it selfish to marry your boyfriend even though you know you might not beable to go through with having kids? I'm convinced im going to die
TO marry or not: Is not really a medical topic for a forum like Healthtap. What I can tell you is you sound like you need to solve some more serious issues than whether to marry or have children before you tackle those decisions. If you are convinced you are going to die at age 25, you need to look into that before devoting your life to someone else, be it a husband or a child. ...Read more
Sir am going to marry soon. And I want to look fairer and healthy. So please suggest me some food which makes me healthy and fairer. Thank you.

If your new husband doesn't like your skin color because it is distinctive for you, then he does not deserve you. A sensible diet and especially a strong commitment to lifelong aerobic fitness is the best gift you can give your husband ; you. ...Read more
