You've told family and friends that you're really not into gift-giving so that no one feels obligated to get you anything, but they send gifts anyway. Is there anything else you can do to convince them not to do this? And if they still buy you presents, do you have to reciprocate?

A 27-year-old man from a very traditional Jewish family got serious with a Catholic girl in college. His parents were never supportive; hers always were — and not only supportive but welcoming. The girlfriend insisted that she would raise the children Jewish, but the young man still had doubts. He recently broke off the relationship but wants to know where to go from here, especially since he still has feelings for the woman.

What do you do when a number of colleagues ask you to support their children's fundraising efforts, especially when lots of them are for Catholic schools? If you don't contribute to each one, will they resent you?
