I love my wife. She is my best friend. We have no kids, just some great dogs and horses. We were very close until I went to jail, and the last day I was in there I got served with divorce papers.
I can’t blame her for how she feels. She says she loves me but she’s too hurt to continue. I love her and I’m devastated that I can’t fix this.
I have known her for 20 years and she means so much to me. I want to save our marriage, and for the last year I have expressed repeatedly how sorry I am. Any advice?
:Sorry In Tennessee
:Dear Sorry: Tell your wife (if the divorce isn’t final) that you are willing to do anything to save your marriage, and ask her if she would be willing to go to couple’s counseling with you.
Under the circumstances, her feelings are entirely understandable. If there is any love for you left in her heart, counseling may help to get your relationship back on track. However, if she refuses, you will have to accept her decision and go on with your life, having learned a very expensive lesson.
Dear Abby: I am a 23-year-old gay male who is interested in doing drag. Due to being unable to find work, I am hoping I can turn performing in drag into a source of income. I am not afraid to perform in front of crowds of people, so this could be a good idea. Do you think it is?

:Dear Potential Superstar: It’s not a bad idea. Your next step is to audition to see if you have the ability and the looks to succeed.
While drag is a narrow niche of show business, some performers have had successful careers in that area — and you might, too. You’ll never know if you don’t give it a try. I wish you luck.
