My Ex Is My Neighbor

Group Therapy: My Ex Got Married and Moved to My Neighborhood

My boyfriend of 10 years broke up with me a few years ago. We were even making plans to get married! Now, he's married a woman after just meeting her in Alcoholics Anonymous and kept it a secret from me. I was devastated when I first found out from someone I work with (he also worked with me just a few offices away). After his quick marriage, I tried my best to not have any contact with him, but he would go out of his way to be around me, which made things difficult. After a couple of years I had the opportunity to leave the state (from Washington to Texas) for a better job, and I thought it would be great not just for me professionally but also simply to be able to get away from him. That was five years ago, and I just found out my ex has moved not only to Texas, but into my neighborhood. Could this just be a coincidence? Why in the world would he do this?
