Warning - Choking Hazard

Here's how it all shook out.

My sister went back to her husband.  Awwww, it's like a storybook romance by way of Jerry Springer.

Mom and dad insist they did not convince her to go back.  This is odd, given that, just a scant year ago, they were encouraging my sister to DTMFA as soon as they reached their ten year anniversary so she could get a cut of his retirement.  Had a lawyer picked out and everything.  Now, she's taking off from a monster, and they are perfectly cool with this.

Mom told me my BIL has never hurt my sister before.  I said bullshit, that's not how abusers operate.  How does she know he never physically attacked my sister?  He told them.  Yeah.  THAT I believe.  And it still doesn't change the fact that he still abuses her mentally and emotionally.  According to them, that you can shrug off.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.  As if all you have to do is dismiss the thoughts and they instantly no longer affect you.

This is to illustrate to you why I don't tell my parents jack shit about anything I'm doing and when they ask me about anything, from my dating life to my regular job to whatever, I just say everything is okay and subtly change the subject.

So, to review, my ethnic make-up is apparently Polish (my mom's side), German (my dad's side), and white trash (everybody).

You gotta love a family where the guy with a thing for mermaids and watches My Little Pony is more of an outcast than Drew Peterson Jr.

I'm glad that got a laugh. You have to admit, what I've described? It's pretty much the only thing that fits.

I appreciate the well wishes for my sister.

This makes me very sad. As someone who was emotionally abused by my husband, I know first-hand how awful that can be. I've been divorced for almost three years now and I am still trying to get past all of the pain and undo the damage that was done to me. You know we've discussed this, but I have to say again that I hope your sister finds her way out of this. ♥

I thank you for the hopes for my sister. The things she has done have nothing to do with this, as I refuse to believe that ANYONE deserves to be hurt by someone who has allegedly pledged their life, love, and protection to them. She has a lot to make up for, but being someone's punching bag is not how it's done.
