DEAR DEIDRE: OUR kids are miserable thanks to my ex forcing them to live apart.
We were married for 15 years. He is 54, I am 48 and we have two sons, aged 14 and ten.
When he moved out three years ago, my ex insisted one child should live with each of us. We alternate each week.
Everything else had been a battle, so I agreed. The kids seemed OK with it and I wanted to keep the peace.
But the boys hate living apart and miss each other, so I said we should have them both every other week.
My ex was totally against that and now won’t answer my calls.
