My husband and I live close to him, but he rarely visits us.
Listening to my friends talk about their relationship problems is getting really tough.
I’ve tried to be respectful to my ex-wife and keep things private, but our mutual friends seem to be taking her side.

His mother had to give up her first boy for adoption, and she never told her second son. I don’t know whether I owe him the truth.
