Pest wife regression & Speaking ill of the dud
Q: Two years ago, my man left his 22-year marriage to be with me, but he told me he loved his former wife and would always want a friendship with her. I accepted that (I m friends with my ex), but I m bothered by the amount of contact they have. They do have two adult children and own property together. But, although she s living with a new partner, she sometimes wants to borrow his car, have him pick up the dogs, or drop off some paperwork. They phone about every other day, and not a week goes by without his stopping over occasionally for a family dinner. I get plenty of his time, energy and affection, and I know their relationship isn t romantic. The issue is split loyalty all the effort he s putting into remaining loving friends with a woman who d love to see our relationship fail. Am I being petty and jealous? It feels like she’s clinging hard and so is he.
