  •  SO when I read your story (13+ / 0-)

    about the guy, and how he lead you on, alcohol, lies, it read very much like a roommate I had through and after college who was in a similar situation. She was probably 21 at the time. The guy was very abusive, she would show up with bruises, they had terrible fights.

    Then she got pregnant and it turned very ugly. Like you, she had a sister who refused to help. The guy also refused, he wanted her to have the baby. We all moved to help her out but she insisted we stay out of it. She had been trapped in the abusive cycle and would not allow it.

    Her dad was in 'Insurance" in New Jersey but we all knew he was Mafia. He took care of the situation after she showed up over Christmas with a black eye. No one ever saw the guy again, and we didn't really ask (not saying he killed him, but definitely sent him a message of some sort). She was never happy about how it shook out. It was hard to watch happen, we all loved her so much. The effect was deep and the scars were permanent. We all went or separate ways after that year, and she has had a difficult life.
