Abusive ex can prove he’s changed by staying away



August 29, 2019 - 10:23 AM

Dear Carolyn: Five years ago I started what would become a three-year relationship with a man who I now recognize was extremely controlling and emotionally abusive (and, once, physically abusive). He finally stopped calling two years ago.

Fifteen months ago, I started dating the wonderful, caring, supportive man who recently became my fiance. I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Six months ago, ex emails me to say he’s changed, life is good, etc. I responded that I was happy for him and was dating a great guy.
