Me and my wife broke up last year although we kept in touch. She says she wants to fix things but something does not add up. I want to introduce the no contact rule. Should I tell her or just cut links between us?


This is a tricky one as you do not say if you have children together or any joint financial assets or liabilities. If you do, then you will need to adopt a modified form of no contact.

As you have been keeping in touch with your ex, it would only be polite to let her know that you want a clean break for a short while. Explain that this is something that you need to do for yourself and is not intended as a punishment for her.
