He wanted to try again, but by then the children were either at boarding school or university and my mind was made up.It became pretty acrimonious because he wouldn’t accept that I wasn’t coming back.Our first son, Richard, was born in 1976 and Edward came a year later. We had a very happy but busy life with a huge six-bedroom house, complete with ten acres, as well my own business.But around 12 years into our 23-year marriage, we began to grow apart.
We love each other very much, but now my ex-wife has threatened to sever all ties with her sister and turn the family against her if our relationship continues.
Victoria Craig, 66, runs a knitwear company and lives with her husband Nicholas, 67, a retired solicitor, in Corbridge, Northumberland. That night at the wedding, we talked until the early hours, and a couple of weeks later he rang to ask me out.
The couple, who have three grown-up sons, first wed in November 1972. When I was 25 and Nicholas proposed, I had no doubts that he was ‘the one’. As the day approached, I became incredibly nervous as it was a very formal ‘society’ wedding held at my parents’ mansion in Wiltshire with 300 guests.
I never told my ex-wife’s family about her cheating because I didn’t want to embarrass her. SOSDear SOS: It seems to me that if your ex-wife really has the power to banish her own twin from the family, she also has the power to yell, “Fake news! You and your new love should do what you want, while understanding that you might not be able to control the story — or the consequences.
DEAR AMY: My 16-year-old stepdaughter came to live with us full time rather suddenly.
