Do I say anything?

I just discovered that I work with the 1/2 brother of my ex. I've worked with this guy thru my messy divorce and had no clue who he was. I don't even know if my co-worker knows he has a 1/2 brother (my ex is about 10 yrs older than him and shares a dad that wasn't in my ex's life) I've never even met my ex's biological father.

Needless to say I'm kinda shocked here, a little embarrassed and not sure what to do.

  • I don't know how you found this out but I would simply go on as I had before and forget that I know this little tidbit.

  • You don't know if he even knows he has a half brother, so I'd keep my mouth shut, if I were you.

  • I would not say anything.

  • If it were me I would keep on as it is now and ignore the connection he has to your ex. If HE brings the subject up, then I would make tell him that I wondered if he was related to ex. Maybe he knows of the relationship but since he is on good terms with you he could be keeping that hidden as he knows how difficult the divorce and ex were, and he values your friendship and does not want to potentially ruin it by bringing up the ex.
