So Many People Are Hurt
My wife's grandfather was a *********. He died before I met her, and he never molested her, but his memory still haunts us. My mother-in-law was terrified that my wife would be molested by her grandfather, or any man for that matter, and so she never let her be alone with a man, including even my father-in-law. This suspicion of men persists in my wife.
She tells me that she trusts me with our daughters, but I know she says those words as much to convince herself as to reassure me.
