  • yes it's best not to say yes or no. they have to decide for themselves what is best and will make them happiest

  • Why did they split? My brother is also going though the same thing except he's wife is cheating on him for the second time. And I told him just to let her go, she has never put him first, this is not the first time and she is always bitching that he is lazy when he is not and does work he ass off for her to keep up with her sisters. By the way she has 6 sisters and they have also cheated on their Husbands.

  • I think you did... I'd have said something like "only you and he know if it's worth another try but I will still care for you both regardless of whether you're together or not".

  • I think you said the best thing you could say. You didn't tell her to give him another chance, and you didn't tell her not to. You advise her to do the right thing, to be sure she does what she really wants. I think you gave great advice!
