HELP: "His ex-girlfriend won't accept that it's over"


Anonymous from Klerksdorp writes:  

I have been with my

boyfriend for four years.

He has never cheated on me but

I have lost interest in him. This

is due to his ex-girlfriend, who

doesn’t accept that he met me

four months after they broke

up. She phones and insults me

and her siblings do the same.

My boyfriend completely lost it

and ended up slapping her. They

don’t have a child but his mother

invites her over and entertains

her. Where does this leave me?

Everytime I let him go, he pleads

with me to take him back but I

can’t tolerate his ex any longer.

Sis Naledi answers:

You need to focus on your

relationship together and

keep everyone else out of it.

His family may have loved the exgirlfriend

and prefer her than you,

but if your boyfriend doesn’t love

her anymore, there is nothing

they can do about it. If somebody

harasses or insults you, you need

to report that to the police and

apply for a protection order

against them. Your boyfriend is

also a victim of his ex, and it is not

fair to hold him responsible for

her behaviour.
