DEAR ABBY: For years I was married to a very abusive man. I have a female cousin who stood by me through it all and helped me to finally free myself from him.
Since childhood this cousin and I have confided in each other about everything in our lives.
Now I find out she's dating my ex-husband! Abby, I feel betrayed. I also feel I can no longer confide in her. What should I do? -- CONFUSED BEYOND BELIEF, BEVERLY, MASS.
DEAR CONFUSED: Start praying for her. Because you've been in her shoes, you know firsthand what the future holds for her.
