What makes you think that people are still talking about you - and who to?

One family member,on greeting her at a family event,turned her face away as I went to kiss her on her cheek,she is freindly with my ex.Family members,I dont really know,new generation,I have a quite big family,make contact,to say hello,then go suspiciously quiet.I know I maybe paranoid but it seems suspicious.I live 50 miles from main family group,Family events come and go,I dont hear about them,but then realise my ex wife attended..,

I am afraid that this is not unusual where there has been a divorce - sadly all to often people chose one "side" or the other.

There is nothing that can be done about this - it is basic human nature

If there is one family member you trust more than any other you could arrange to meet them ads ask them to be honest with you about what is being said and then tell them your truth, but this is not an area that the law can help you with I am afraid.

Please ask if you need further details
