Our expert says:
Firstly, how does your cousin know this and where did they hear this?
If your cousin hadn't said this would you have suspected anything? The best way to deal with this is to get the full story from your cousin and then tell your boyfriend what you have been told and go from there. Some people will go to great lengths to cover up if they are lying - but turning yourself into some kind of spy or detective is also not going to feel very positive for you. So when you meet him again be honest and take it from there.
