'Tired' Husband Finds Energy to Leave His Wife, Daughter

DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I are very much in love and plan on being married in October. We're both in our 50s.

I have a secret that I haven't told him and I'm afraid to because I'm worried he won't love me anymore if I do. My secret is I wear dentures. He's always telling me what beautiful teeth I have and he wishes his were as pretty as mine.

I feel that I should be honest about this before we get married. Should I tell? -- SPARKLING WHITE IN TEXAS

DEAR SPARKLING: Of course you should tell him -- because he is going to find out eventually anyway. Here's how to approach it. The next time he compliments you, tell him if he wants teeth as beautiful as yours, it's doable; all he has to do is call your dentist.
