After a relaxing family trip I was driving a van full of my wife’s family. 5 kids, including my own, and four other boys. I missed something and out of nowhere my wife’s sister’s husband is beating the shit out of his 10 year old son. My sister in law did nothing but say, "Wait until you get home and beat him then.
I was so mad that I was about to pull over and scream at him. My wife begged me not to with a face I won’t soon forget. The thing is my mother-in-law was there and didn’t say a word, nor did the head of the family, my wife’s older brother…a very nice guy that I do consider my brother.
I know there is a whole procedure in handling this…if Mom doesn’t say anything, nothing can be done. Have any of you married folk had to deal with this kind of thing?
