Social Security: Beat procrastination by changing your direct deposit early

Ex-etiquette: Father finds out daughter is not his biological child

Q. I just split up with my ex-wife. She told me our last child was not mine and I just couldn't take it anymore. I demanded a DNA test – and sure enough she was right.
