Ask Amy: Board members are afraid of confrontation

If things don’t improve, see if he can be removed from the board.

Dear Amy: I am in the process of divorcing my second husband.

My first marriage happened when I was too young; we divorced when I was 29.

I was single until I was 48 and married at age 50.

This man was the love of my life. Over the course of eight years, I found out that he was doing some bad things, and I couldn't stay with him.


I filed for divorce. I was devasted.

I'd like to be friends with him, but for him, friendship with me causes him to automatically assume that we will be together.

We live in a small town. I don't know how to walk the line between friendship and no contact.

I want to support him, but do not want to partner with him, ever again. We share animals, all of which are with me. He wants to be involved; this means he's over almost every weekend.
