Our expert says:
I think your idea to write a letter may be a good one, but making sure that within it you make clear that it comes out of concern rather than wanting to tell your mother what to do. Your Mom may also feel that now that she has raised her children that she wants to have a relationship of her own, but as you say her choice of partner is causing some controversy within your family. You may also think about talking to some older people in the family who are sympathetic towards your mother who may also advise you as they will know your Mom well and what she may best respond to.
In your letter try to find a way to let her know you are concerned and care for her without it coming across as you being angry or judgemental, but rather you are worried for her.
