WHY are they introducing new vocabulary--chồng cũ'-- in the third pass???? The problems with DL modules is that they typically contain too much vocabulary to be truly learned and incorporated and retained in five passes through the material--sometimes 40 or 50 words---and adding more just makes the problem worse.

Doesn't "ex" indicate already divorced?

The point of the sentence is that he SAID that BEFORE they divorced.

Well, they divorced, but the husband said he would not when they were in relationship.
