yeah everything going on, i was told i needed to stop smoking so my neck can heal right. but seeing how these people are in my wife family. i feel alot of them have turned thier backs on my daughter, and even me and my wife. with my son he did for his wife, just because she dont get along with my daughter and even hadnt tried. and now my wife second cousin did the samething for his girl friend who is my daughter in law cousin. and to me all the other neices and nephews turned their backs on my daughter because they hang out with that dude who tried to raped her. i told my wife i would never turn my back on my family for her, or anyone else. and i would never allow her to do the things my daughter in law and her cousin did and does. because it wouldnt be me and her. so could you turn your back on family for dumb things like this ?

I never face this type of situation, even if I face this type of situation I will make decision myself according to my career. And I think its not necessary to turn back on your family because if we can't live under his/her control.

I am very sorry again and I am not sure what's wrong with your wife's family, and is that man family? why are they so keen on him? That is plain weird. My grandma who raised and my mother are in heaven, one of my favorite aunts is with them too and my family is all keeping to themselves so if they talk to me I will talk to them and if not I will not try to talk to people who change their phone numbers at will and basically ignore me.

no i would not either. say for the daughter who was tried to rape her. and if we say something worse happened, let say, she was actually raped and got pregnant, i will not turn back on her. a good example of this is my wife, who was raped, according to her, by her former boyfriend. then her father knew about what happened to her. but he never got mad but he loved her much more and the baby.

I don't think you should turn your back on your family, but there are times when you have to get tough with them and point out that there are certain behaviors that will not be tolerated, and sometimes that means saying, "If you can't live by our rules, you'll have to leave." Or it might mean saying, "I cannot be a party to your bad behavior," and limiting your contact with the offender.

No but if I were you, I would stay as far away from these people as possible. And to protect your daughter keep her even further. Good luck
