DEAR DEIDRE: My partner left me when I asked him not to discuss his ex’s social plans.

He has conversations with her when they arrange drop offs and pick ups for their son. He then tells me everything she’s doing.

I don’t mind if they talk, but I don’t need to know where she is going for dinner

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

I’m 29 and my partner’s 31.

I asked him politely not to discuss her with me, because I don’t need to know.

I don’t mind if they talk, but I don’t need to know where she is going for dinner or who’s party she has been invited to.

Every problem gets a personal reply, usually within 24 hours weekdays.

The argument escalated and I became so frustrated because he refused to see my point of view. I completely lost it and we split up.

I’m happy this happened because he’s put me down, belittled and controlled me for years, but I need help to deal with this.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as if you have had a lucky escape.

His behaviour towards you was abusive and you are better off without him. Too many women stay in abusive relationships.
