Don’t cover for divorcing brother, but don’t volunteer info



December 11, 2019 - 10:02 AM

Hi, Carolyn: My sister and I recently became aware that our brother, married for 12 years — we thought happily — with two young kids, is leaving his wife after having an affair for months. He’s moving in with the other woman and has declared they are “in love” (gag). We are still reeling from this news.

My brother has told our parents about the divorce but has been vague as to the reasons.

Consequently, my parents believe the marriage may still be salvageable and are dead-set on helping them through this “rough patch.”
