LIBRA DEAR ABBY EEE Dear Abby: I’ve been married to the same woman for 24 years. We have been faithful since we took our vows and have never had a reason to stray. I have looked at her throughout the years and thought to myself how lucky I am to have such an unbelievably beautiful woman by my side. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more — intelligent, empathetic and a fun and outgoing person to be in love with. She keeps getting better looking. My question is, after all these years, is it unnatural for me to just want to be near her, to smell her, to hold her? I really can’t keep my hands off her. — Handsy in New Mexico As long as your wife doesn’t feel encroached upon, your need to touch her is not only natural, it is enviable.

It’s a reasonable request, and it shouldn’t offend anyone. place than hosting you at his. Why that would be is anybody’s guess. Maybe he is lazy and doesn’t want to straighten up for a guest. Maybe he’s unwilling to provide food or a beverage you prefer. Are you sure he lives alone and there isn’t another hen sitting in his nest? You haven’t said how long you have been together as a couple, but it does seem like he is taking advantage. Unless he can explain to you WHY you can’t come over, your negative thoughts about this may be warranted. (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Home is where it’s at today.

SAGITTARIUS EEEEE Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sit tight, observe what’s going on and respond to the situations that surface before you consider making a change.

He is always at my house, but I can never go to his to sit around and relax. When I get upset about it and want to talk to him about it, he tells me that’s not the case at all. I’m welcome anytime. But when I suggest it, I am always turned down. I’m trying hard to be optimistic, but I have so many negative thoughts about this.
