Q. My wife and I have been married for 6 months. I’m very close to my ex — she’s the mother of our three children and the kids go back and forth between our homes. My wife was going through my phone and found some texts with my ex that she thought were too flirty and went ballistic. She said I’m too close to my ex and now really hates whenever I talk to her.
