User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
my boyfriend of nine months has been divorced for three years and has two children with his ex wife. Well, I have never been in this type of situation before, but to make matters worse he would constantly hang out with his ex's family members and would regularly see her. He tried to make me believe it was for his kids. Our relationship was intense and loving. I would get jealous of this and felt bad for it. We have broken up due to some of these complications... he texts me now... two weeks after breakup, that his ex-wife wants him back and he has a lot to think about! The point of me telling you this is... your jealousy is warranted and if i were you I would run in the opposite direction and follow your gut feelings on the situation. Had I done the same I would have spared myself a lot of the pain I am currently feeling.
