Is This a Bigger Problem?
She wondered if her fiancé’s family’s treatment of An was indicative of a larger problem in their family dynamic, and whether she could continue to be part of it if it was.
This Is Child Abuse!
One concerned user said, “why aren’t you calling off this marriage after seeing how horrible your fiance and his family truly are? Imagine how they’ll treat your future children if they aren’t perfect?”
Another stated, “This is child abuse. You should call child protective services on the parents. An needs to get therapy and support for her disability.”
Should she stay out of her fiancé’s family’s business? Is it important to stand up for what you believe in no matter the consequences?
