In their advice column today, SR End Notes blog writers Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Nappi had this exchange for an interesing situation:
- Q. My wife and I divorced more than 20 years ago. We both remarried. Recently my former brother-in-law contacted me and he wishes to see me when he’s passing through town. My new wife is OK with it, but it still feels a little odd to me. Advice?
- A. Each family situation will be unique. But we advise erring on the side of reconnecting with in-law relationships, whether those relationships were lost through death or divorce. At the end of our lives, people often regret giving up on people who meant a lot to them at one time. More here.
Question: Have you kept in contact with former in-laws?
