Expensive Abby: Ought to I transfer throughout the nation to be with my boyfriend whose ex nonetheless asks for booty calls?



DEAR ABBY: I just lately met the love of my life, and I’m planning to depart my life and household in Arkansas and transfer to California to marry him. He’s just lately divorced after a 25-year marriage. My drawback is that his ex needed the divorce, however now she desires him again. She is aware of he has met somebody, however she’s always telling him she desires a “booty name.”

They’ve two grown kids, and their daughter is being married quickly. His ex is now threatening that if he brings me to the marriage, she is going to do one thing loopy. I do know he loves me and he talks to her solely to maintain her calm, however I really feel if he doesn’t take me to the marriage he might be extremely disrespecting me. He nonetheless talks to her despite the fact that she has mentioned some nasty issues about me, which can be hurtful. Am I being too delicate? — PERPLEXED IN THE SOUTH

DEAR PERPLEXED: When this man’s ex tells him she desires a booty name, how does he reply? If he’s nonetheless sexually concerned along with her, your odds of success with him are zero. He could discuss to her (regardless of her saying nasty issues about you) as a result of they’ve kids and presumably grandchildren in frequent. That he would REPEAT her lower than complimentary feedback to you doesn’t say a lot for his judgment.

Below these circumstances, I don’t assume you need to insist upon attending that wedding ceremony. As a substitute, think twice concerning the knowledge of leaving your life and household and relocating until you may have a job ready and a assured timeline concerning marriage.

DEAR ABBY: My 50-year-old nephew has all the time used girls and was lastly caught embezzling $60,000 from considered one of them. He was arrested and ordered to pay restitution, or he would keep in jail for years. After solely two weeks of incarceration, he cried and pleaded with our household and promised he would pay anybody again the cash if they might pay his restitution.

My sister was a wreck and got here to me. I got here up with the cash and acquired a promissory be aware from my nephew. Lengthy story brief, he caught my sister with each fee. When my sister went bankrupt due to it, I requested if he may not less than pay $25 towards what he owed, however he did nothing. My sister lastly repaid every thing my nephew owed me, and now she expects us all to be one large, completely happy household.

She has invited me and my husband to come back for the vacations, which is able to embody my nephew. I advised her I’ll by no means once more be in the identical room with that liar and cheat, so now she’s upset with me! Am I making the fitting selection? He used all of us to get out of jail, by no means paid anybody again and remains to be utilizing girls. For that I’m speculated to embrace him with open arms? I believe it might be condoning his actions. — UPSET AUNT

DEAR AUNT: I agree with you about that. Your instinctive response to maintain your sociopathic nephew at arm’s size (and even additional) is HEALTHY. It’s safer to maintain folks with no ethics at a distance. After what occurred, as a lot as your sister would possibly want it, you might be now not one large completely happy household.
