TO BE OR NOT TO BE
Dear Dolores: I need your advice. I have been with my live-in boyfriend for two years, but I just found out he has a wife in Mexico. He says he didn’t want to tell me because he was afraid I’d leave him. I love the guy. What do I do?

LOVE IN THE TIME WARP
Dear Dolores: I’ve been in a relationship for 10 years. From the beginning I knew he had a girlfriend and that they lived together, but our attraction for each other was so strong that we plunged ahead. Lately he’s changed. We used to see each other every week, but in the last six months we only see each other once a month. I adore him, but I wonder if he loves me. I don’t think I can live without him. ¿Qué hago?

When the first Dolores Dice column appeared in the May 1998 issue of Latina, I had no idea it would be going strong for so long. I just want to take a moment to thank you for sharing your problemas, big and small, existential and non-existent, with me. I hope that throughout these many years, my comments have helped, enlightened or entertained you in some way. I know I have enjoyed every minute of it and hope we can continue to put up with each other for ten more years.

My mother favors my brother all the time. She never calls or looks for me. I was raised by my grandmother, but she passed away 20 yeas ago. I’m married and have five children. Can you give me some advice, please?

You gotta have friends
My oldest sister is shy and doesn’t have many friends, so she calls me constantly because she has no one to talk to. It’s my mother’s fault. Growing up she insisted we stick with the family. Mami only talks to my aunt on the phone and has no friends of her own either. I’m the opposite and enjoy a good social life. I love my sister but she calls me a minimum of three times a day, at the office or on my cell. I’ve tried talking to her about it but to no avail. How do I shake her off?
