DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife told me her new guy is moving in with her and our children next week. I think this is all wrong.
We have been separated for two years and they have been together a year.
She said her partner was keen to meet me and discuss what the new reality might look like. But I’ve not taken them up on this offer.
They’ve now told me I have a three-month window to explain the new situation to my kids and to meet them together to discuss any concerns I have.
I’m 33 and my wife is 31. I replied that I wasn’t happy.
I don’t agree with their plans but can’t block them, as it’s her house.
I also said I’ll never let our children see him as a stepdad, even if they get marred.

DEIDRE SAYS: I hear your unhappiness but it will be your children who will be worst affected if you keep up a feud with your ex-wife and her new partner.
They sound to be trying to handle this tactfully.
Best for your children if you accept the new reality. You will always be Dad to your children.
