Dear Ask Mommy,
The man who I have been dating for the past year, is divorced and has no children, yet he and his ex-wife still have the same accounts for cell phone bills and car insurance. He says that they just never separated those two bills. Should I be mad?

Dear His New Woman,
My understanding of divorce is that it is OVER! When you still have things together, that means that there still has to be some communication. Now, I am not saying that they have to hate one another but they don’t have any children, so I would assume that they don’t need to talk to one another often. As adults, I can’t understand why they would share a cell phone bill. Even if you had to break the contract, they both could go half to pay any penalties.
I once dated someone who was in the same situation (cell phone) and his ex-wife was calling and playing on my phone. She got my number by going online and looking at his outgoing calls. At first he didn’t believe that she would do such a thing but when I finally confronted her with some things that I knew about their relationship that I really shouldn’t have said (messy I know) and she called him to confront him, he obviously believed me and got his on phone line.
Car insurance, may be a different thing, if it was cheaper at one address than another, yet, it still goes back to breaking ties.
If I were you, I wouldn’t be mad but I would tell him how I felt. Maybe he just never thought about it. If he’s REALLY into you and once he has heard your views, he will make the necessary changes.
Good luck and let me know how things go.
