Need a bit of advice, my brother has been in a relationship with a lady for about 8 years. He lives and works in NY so only comes home for a few weeks in the Summer and then at Christmas, but up to a couple of years ago he was paying for this lady to visit him in NY. Over the last couple of years their relationship has become a bit ‘turbulent’, mainly I think, because he has stopped offering to pay for her flights to NY (he’s 65 and says he needs to start thinking about finances in his retirement). Anyway I have become quite close to this lady, I think she knows the relationship is on the wain, but doesn’t want to accept it, she says she wants to remain friends with me even if they split but whenever I see her, she gets very emotional and just wants to get info out of me, re my brother (and to be honest, I don’t know any more than she does) I feel I’m in the middle of the pair of them, both telling me ‘stuff’ about the other and I really don’t want to take sides. Do you think it’s possible to remain friends with someone in these circumstances and if not, how do I go about telling her?
