I’m still in love with my ex
Q My ex left me two years ago when I challenged him about having an affair. I hoped we’d work it out but instead he chose to leave me for her. They are now married, but for the last six months we’ve been seeing each other again. I am still in love with him and he knows this, but although he’s made a mistake, he can’t leave his wife. I feel trapped – what should I do? Name and address withheld
A Your ex betrayed you and then left you for a woman who is now his wife, only to betray her. So he’s neither reliable nor honest, which makes for a shaky future at best. If he left, you need to consider life in five years time or 10. If you’re looking for love and happiness this won’t happen if you stay tied to this man.
