DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife had an affair last year and I am seeking a divorce – but her side of the family are under the impression our marriage has collapsed because I cheated on her.
Should I sit them down and set the record straight?
I am 47 and have been married for 12 years. I had a heart attack a year ago and while I was in hospital fighting for my life, my wife started an affair.
Soon after I recovered and was sent home, she left me and moved into a flat above the restaurant where she works nearby.
Weeks later, I found out she had had a fling with one of her male friends.
I have moved on, and am looking to divorce, but I am bombarded with calls from her family.
They accuse me of being unfaithful and treating my ex like dirt.
I’ve asked her to be honest and tell them the truth, but she is refusing to.
All the hassle is causing me stress that I do not need.

DEIDRE SAYS: Her family sound like bullies, and the way to deal with bullies is to stand up to them.
It is certainly not OK for them to harass you.
Give your ex a set amount of time to set the record straight. If she doesn’t, tell her you will.
My support pack called Standing Up For Yourself will help you to be assertive.
