Dear Carolyn,
My boyfriend and I are having a few problems. The main one is that he’s not divorced yet from his wife. He’s a long-haul trucker and she’s a stay-at-home mom. She handles all the business side of trucking including paying the bills, taxes and fees. They have both agreed to a divorce but it’s taking a long time due to finances. We started going out a year ago and he really loves me. However, he doesn’t want to rock the boat with his wife because times are tough and she’s really good at all the paperwork.
I want to be with this guy but I’m not sure it’s going to work out.
What do you think?

Dear Jessie,

I’m just say’n,
