DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE met someone new while my boyfriend is serving time in prison.
I’m 31 and my partner 34.
The new guy is 32 and everything my other half is not. He’s sweet and caring – and I’m falling in love with him.
I’ve been with my partner for eight years, but this is the second time he has been to prison.
He has spent four years in total locked up. I’ve been seeing this new man for the last six months.
I know deep down I don’t have the courage to leave.
I really don’t want to hurt this other guy and I’ve been honest about my boyfriend.
He’ll be released in a few months’ and I don’t know what to do.

DEIDRE SAYS: It’s unfair to keep your boyfriend in the dark but you have every right to end your relationship.
He will quite understandably be devastated if you tell him about your new man, so before you make your final decision, be sure it is the right choice for you and stick to your resolve.
But only leave because you are unhappy, not because you have someone new to go to.
There’s no guarantee a relationship with him will work out.
