DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex-husband is marrying my former best friend. I can’t get over it.
My husband left me for my best friend just after our silver wedding anniversary four years ago. He is 55, I am 50. I had no idea they were having an affair.
We stay civil for our sons’ sakes.
They are 23 and 21 and accept that he is getting married again.
My ex and my friend have bought a stunning new house together.
I never expected to meet someone else but I did last year and we are getting married too.
We are not well off but very happy together.
Why am I still angry about my lost lifestyle?
It was quite a controlling marriage.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is only natural to feel angry after your world was upended, even though you have new blessings to count.
Safely letting out that rage will help.
Whenever your blood boils, beat up a couple of pillows, pretending they are your ex and his partner.
Keep reminding yourself you are lucky to have found your own new love.
Given people don’t easily change, your former friend now has a controlling partner.
