He moved back in with his parents in another state and went to college, graduating with honors, but we rarely saw him. I stayed in touch with his parents by email. About two years later I met a wonderful man. We also married, and he became very close to my son. My son knows he is not his biological father, but he calls him DAD. Last week I got a call from my ex’s mother saying that her son had remarried and has another child. He would like our son to meet his sibling. I am at a loss for how to handle this. My son is 8 years old. What’s good ex-etiquette?

Dear Answer Angel Ellen: How do I decide if I’m wearing too many accessories? The other day I was going to a fancy dinner so I wore rhinestones: earrings, necklace and a rhinestone belt.
