When I got divorced, my ex-husband’s entire family stopped communicating with me.
I’m not trying to be funny by saying this, but often times, if you can’t stand your in-laws, your divorce suddenly has a plus side. You never, ever have to go out for lunch or brunch or dinner with them ever again!
But, what happens if you actually like your soon-to-be ex’s family and friends, and they basically tell you to lose their number?
My elder sister, to whom I’m very close, just got back together with her ex-boyfriend.
There was an incident, though, not long ago, when her ex and I were feeling sorry for ourselves and got very, very drunk, and accidentally slept together.
But what about the relationships that have formed with other people because of your marriage?
The two of you have made a decision to disconnect, detach and distance yourself from each other.
And 'irritation’ is not quite the word for what your sister might feel once he’s blurted. OCTAVIA This boy went through the whole process of getting back together with her and didn’t at any point say, 'Oh, listen, there is this slight spanner in the works you might object to.’ And he thinks now is a good time to bring it up?You could try (a) confessing before he does, or (b) the Murdoch approach: denial, denial, denial, even in the face of counter-testimony. I’m not convinced their relationship is long for this world.How will the story stack up against the greatest films about business? In other words, when it comes to divorce, what do you do if your in-laws dump you?
No one knows, but he wants to confess and start afresh, with a clean slate. VICKI Neither do I, my dear, but he won’t heed your say-so.
I have no sister so I know only – from being a first-born – that elder sisters tend to be irritated by younger siblings who come along with their sense of entitlement to everything we had to fight for.
