All I can do is be here for her.Yes,she is the Friend who has the Abusive Husband and won't leave.It's not that she isn't interested to leave,it's that she is hoping he will help get her debt knocked down before ousting him.
Kitt,I can't report to her Family or local Adult Agency.They are a "get on the defensive real quick" type People,and if I were to do that all h*ll would break loose.
Her Son,DIL and Adopted Daughter lets her do her own thing knowing she has a problem,but they have problems of their own.
Her Son is distrustful,leary and paranoid of everybody.Her Daughter won't keep a Job,is constantly in trouble with the Law (Tickets,Warrants) because my Sister Friend stayed with their Abusive Father.
Her first Husband Physically Abused her for 27 Years of Marriage and also hit around on the Kids.What made her finally get out of that Marriage is he put a Gun to her Head in front of their Adopted Daughter.
She Married her second Husband whilst Married to her first..her second Husband died about 5 Years into their Marriage.
She has some really severe "issues" that Years of Therapy isn't helping,but then again she refuses to stop living in the past.
