OPP: Family Taking His Side
Today, Angela joined us live on the air to discuss her OPP.
Lately, she has been going through a rough patch in her relationship with her husband, along with her family. She has been married for six years and when she came downstairs one day, he had gone to the bathroom so she took a look at his computer and saw he was in a chat room with some girl! Now she doesn’t trust him anymore, doesn’t appreciate it and can’t even imagine what’s next if this is the kind of guy he is. She doesn’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth about it, so she’s done…She’s ready to sign the divorce papers. She turned to her family for support, but they don’t see it as a big deal and have completely taken his side. She feels like no one is listening to her. Is she crazy? What do you do when you’ve made a decision and no one supports you?
Slacker wanted to know if she had full trust in her family and friends. If everyone was telling her it wasn’t a big deal, than maybe he thinks they’re right. Slacker thinks Angela may be overreacting if her friends are taking his side. He’s afraid she has a history of overreacting because he can’t see why her friends and family’s wouldn’t be behind her on this…
Slacker was in this position with his ex-wife. She found his family to be a source of strength during their relationship, so when they got a divorce his family backed away from her and she didn’t know what to do…
Have you been in this situation before?
Do you think Angela has a right to be upset about this? What advice do you have for Angela?
