Dear Nicola, My boyfriend thinks i’m cheating on him and it’s really getting me down. He is jealous of my and my ex-partners relationship as we have a child together. He found some messages on my phone which were innocent but he assumes we are having an affair behind his back. This is putting a lot of pressure on our relationship, please can you help advise me on the best way to stop his accusations as I love him so much. Thanks Ailsa
Hi Ailsa, your partner has to understand you have a past and he has to accept you have a child with this man which is for life. There are ways to try to make him see sense and reassure him there is nothing going on with your ex. Maybe suggest involvement and introduce him to your ex if he comes to the house. Keep him updated so he feels he’s not being isolated and he can see there is nothing to worry about. Give it a try and hopefully this will gain his trust in you and everything will work out fine.
