Thanks Van….If we had a stronger presence of men in our family I know it would help. Her brother is disgusted with her for staying. He’s much younger and in a wonderful marriage with a great woman and he would never think of abusing her. He can’t see his sisters problem. Plus he lives too far away. All the other men, her dad and uncles, are dead or not around. When her dad was alive it was not as bad. Truthfully, I think I would die for her and those kids if it would get him out of her life.
