DEAR ABBY: I’m a 42-year-old woman who has been living with my boyfriend, “Matt.” He has asked me to marry him, and I said yes. The problem is, Matt is still married.
Matt and his wife have been separated for eight years. I keep telling him to see if she filed for divorce, but he keeps putting it off.
I love this man, Abby. Matt is good to me and to my children and grandchildren, but I don’t know what to think or do. I want us to buy a house, but I’m scared that if we do, she’ll try to take it from us. He says she wouldn’t. Please give me some advice.
