BoyFRIEnd’s tattoo of his ex-wife’s name is an annoyance to woman
Dear Abby: My boyfriend is divorced. His ex’s name is tattooed on his arm. Although I don’t like it, I realize that it was long ago and before I came into the picture.
As we have grown closer over the last two years, I’m often tempted to ask him to have it removed or covered up. I think it’s tacky, and I don’t like it AT ALL. I know I can’t demand he remove it, but would a gentle request do? Or should I wait until I have more of a formal status in his life?

The South one (thank goodness), and my girls are doing pretty OK with the news.
During this last year, I graduated with my AA degree. I am very proud of the achievement, but have never had a celebration. Would it be in bad taste to have a housewarming, graduation and almost-40 birthday party and ask for gifts for my new house and the girls’ bedrooms?
