a friend of mine felt like a bomb had been dropped on her head today. she found out her husband molested her eldest daughter. the daughter is her child from her last boyfriend. that makes the husband a stepfather. she's so lost right now coz she never thought this could happen to her. right now, she's packing her things coz she's moving out of the house while her husband ran away just this morning from fear of retribution. i really feel for her coz she has big plans for her family. she's been saving up for the renovation of their house. the husband by the way is jobless. he was taking care of all the kids. five including her stepdaughter. this eldest is sometimes a pain in the neck. she can be easily swayed by bad influence. i hope this serves as a wake up call for her to act more responsibly. it's so crazy how things like this is happening more and more each day. i don't know what drove the husband to do this but to my knowledge he had been using illegal drugs. i don't know what will become of my friend coz she's really deppressed right now.

you know, she's torn apart between suing her husband and just letting him go. after all he's still the father of her 4 kids. she can't think straight yet. the most important thing right now is to find a safe place for her and her kids and start anew.

Sometimes "sick" people are the ones we love. Who can one trust? Devastating. But she is doing the right thing by removing her family from such a dangerous predator. Prosecute him to the extent that the law allows. He should face the music for such despicable acts. There is no excuse for such action.
