Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for three years. It’s a second marriage for both of us. We are in our 50s.
Here’s my problem: My husband still keeps in close contact with his ex-wife. I understand that a certain amount of communication is necessary because they have grown children together. But I recently found out that he sent her money for her car loan and bought her a pair of sneakers, and I saw a text message in which he asked whether there’s any jewelry in particular she’s been looking at. He also commented that he thinks of her often.
