I have been single for four years and have finally met a really lovely man. He is kind and sweet, but there’s one sticking point.
He was married in his early 20s and has two sons who are seven and nine, but he never sees them.
He said the divorce was really messy – his wife had an affair – and he cut them off.
When I told my mum she was horrified and said a man who can walk away from his kids isn’t to be trusted. But he is so lovely in every other way that I am worried I will be throwing away a good relationship.
I have told a few of my friends and two of them have said the same as my mum.
I tried to talk to him about his sons and suggested he should write them a letter and try to attempt a meeting, but he shut down and told me it was none of my business.
Is this issue too big to ignore?
