Hus­band’s dis­tress over ex’s bad news per­plexes new wife

Prince Albert Daily Herald - - OPINION -

DEAR ABBY: I have been mar­ried to my hus­band for five years. He’s the man of my dreams, and we have a won­der­ful mar­riage. Re­cently we learned that his ex-wife -- to whom he was mar­ried for 20 years -- has been di­ag­nosed with a life-threat­en­ing can­cer. They have two adult chil­dren to­gether.

I have never questioned my hus­band’s love or de­vo­tion to me. What’s bother­ing me is his re­ac­tion to the news. They had a hor­ri­ble re­la­tion­ship and never got along, but he is very up­set over this. I’m not sure how to han­dle this. I don’t want to seem in­sen­si­tive, but the emo­tion he is show­ing for her has re­ally hurt me.

I re­al­ize she’s the mother of his chil­dren, but they have been di­vorced for years. Please help me un­der­stand what’s go­ing on with him. -- STRONG EMO­TIONS
