Dear Dr. Wallace:

I’m 21, and my girlfriend is 19. We live together and both have good jobs. We get along great, but there’s one issue that she hounds me over constantly — her concern about my beer drinking! Yes, I’ll quaff a beer or two after work most days, but that’s it. And on the weekends when my guy friends come over, I rarely drink more than three beers a day, and that’s over several hours at a barbecue, for example.

Write to Dr. Wallace at rwallace@galesburg.net.
