Agony Aunt

I read Dear Abby on Yahoo every week and I absolutely love it. here are some excerpts that I thought were worth sharing. Kindly lend your advice to these dilemmas which I think are problems which very many young people all over the world can relate with.

Mom Bars Teen From Wedding Of Old Friend Marrying Young

DEAR ABBY: I am 16 and my old friend from grammar school is getting married next month. I just received a wedding invitation in the mail. However, my mother does not approve of her getting married at such a young age (she's 18) and has forbidden me to go or even talk to her. 

I haven't seen this friend in more than two years because she moved away and has only recently returned. I want to attend her wedding. How can I go about convincing my mom to let me go? -- INVITED IN LAS VEGAS
Teen Would Like To Stiff-Arm Mom's 'Affectionate' Friend

DEAR ABBY: I'm 16, go to high school, play football and make good grades. 

At church every Sunday, a lady who is one of my mom's friends always makes a point of coming up to me to talk. She says things about me growing up to be a man, and asks me if I'm dating. She always gives me an extended hug. It's really uncomfortable for me, and embarrassing.

I tried to talk to my mom about it, but she just said her friend is a very affectionate person. To me, the way she does it is creepy and scary. I don't want to be unfriendly to anybody, but this is different. Any suggestions? -- ENOUGH ALREADY, IN SOUTH CAROLINA
