Question: I live in a small village with my husband and teenage children. We built a house on the site of my parents’ farm.
My brother has returned to live in the empty farmhouse. He lived abroad for more than two decades and is recently divorced. The problem is that he is living what he calls his “best life” and it is quite embarrassing and a very poor example to my children, who all adore him. There are numerous local rumours about his behaviour – none of which he denies. He seems to have slept with half of the women in the locality over the age of 25, some of them being either married or engaged. He has parties in the house all the time, and on several occasions during the Covid restrictions I thought that he was going to be arrested for hosting very large gatherings.
