DEAR DEIDRE: I LOVE my ex-husband but my daughters blame him for their brother’s suicide and won’t have him in their lives.

My son was 29 and took his own life two months ago. I was devastated.

I divorced my husband 20 years ago.

I am 55 and he is 57.

We still love each other but he drank heavily and was violent.

He is teetotal now and wants to rejoin the family but my daughters blame their brother’s depression on how his father treated him.

They want nothing to do with him and say it’s too late for forgiveness.

They are 25 and 22 and threaten to leave home if I invite him here.

DEIDRE SAYS: Suicide casts a long shadow but your son lost his struggle with depression for complex reasons, not just because of his father’s abusive behaviour.

Has your ex apologised to them?

He must own what he did and earn his way back.

For now, best meet him outside the family home.
