DEAR DEIDRE: I CONTACTED you when my fiancé’s family were making my life hell.

They hated me when we first met four years ago and tried to turn him against me.

I’m 38 and he’s 40.

They accused me of being manipulative, of cheating and of being money-grabbing.

My partner always took my side. He knew what they were like.

But the result was they didn’t come to our wedding.

Despite this, he still loved them and tried to make an effort.

But you made me see that we were dealing with narcissists who were never going to change, and that cutting them out of our lives might be for the best.

You steered me to, which helps people estranged from family.

Since then, we’ve had no contact with my husband’s family and it’s been a blessed relief. He is happier, too.

I’ve told him that I won’t stop him from seeing them in the future, but I don’t want to be part of it.
