We just bought a rental property with an existing tenant who is in the middle of a year long lease. We plan to honor the remainder of the current lease without changing any terms. However, when the lease is up for renewal we would like to enforce a no-smoking policy. Unfortunately, the very nice current tenant does obviously smoke. YANML, but how can we go about making that change in a lease renewal without it seeming like we are trying to evict him by adding restrictions? [more inside]

I'm a 39-year-old woman in a long-term (16 years) heterosexual relationship, and in the past year or so I've had a big unexplained drop in libido. I've had my hormone levels checked, which was the only test my doctor did in response to the problem, and they're normal. One big problem is that, suddenly, sex is often painful. [more inside]

What are the differences in couples therapy? Is there one method that's better for dealing with grief than another? Confused by "emotionally focused" vs. behavioral or gottman, etc. etc.
My younger brother's fiancée recently sent an email to attendees of their wedding, which will be in a couple of months. It was a friendly reminder of various logistical details, and included the following stipulation: "We have chosen to make our wedding a cell phone-free event. You can leave your cell phone in your car or check it in with one of our gracious cell phone valets!" [more inside]
Last night my 18-year old senior in high school son called--he was out with friends, was super stoned and wanted permission for his friends to drive him home in his car. They got him home and he went to bed. I've got this question because this the second time in a year and a half that this has happened, AND there are other factors. [more inside]

Looking for some perspective on how to deal with my brother's partner. I will try to explain the situation as best I can but please forgive me if I am not coherent. The circumstances are this: We (me – Aunt and my mother - Grandmother) look after my three-year-old nephew every weekend and before and after school on three days per week. Myself, his grandmother (80 years old), his two uncles and his mum are the only family he has. This arrangement of childcare has been more or less forced (emotional blackmail/manipulation of my single parent sister) upon us but was just about proving to be workable, however, it leaves my mother with zero energy to do anything else in her life. I manage it by working part-time and having no other commitments. [more inside]

I'm transitioning as a trans woman. My fiancee is rather dependent on me, and I've never been a single woman. We've agreed to a trial separation this summer vacation (we go to the same college and share an apartment). We agreed I can date others during this period. How can I make the most of this, and hopefully know more confidently if she's the one, or if we should break up? [more inside]

A friend of a friend of a friend inadvertently let me know that our friends-in-common are getting a divorce. It was completely by accident and she was mortified. I feel so bad for my friend who is going through this. Do I tell her that I know, and see if I can do anything for her? Halp. [more inside]
I'm selling a specific kind of high-end furniture, in the range of $10,000-$20,000. Not from a showroom, direct-to-consumer. Where do I place ads to reach the right consumer, and what else should I consider in my messaging? Right now, we are taking a social media approach, so I'd also love to hear of any high-end social media profiles anyone here tends to follow. Lastly, please do mention any magazines I should consider. Thanks in advance!
