@mrshoneybee:  I think I would encourage your sister to talk to a trained professional and maybe even go with her at first until she feels comfortable.

@mrshoneybee:  Only you know your relationships with eachother – but it might be better if it came from you.  Does she know that your husband knows about the sexual predation that was a part of her relationship?  That may embarass her enough so she feels she has to be defensive and ‘protect’ her relationship with the sleazy guy.  

  Maybe you can give her an example of your relationship – how your DH would not treat you in that way.  Ask if she would like to hear a man’s perspective on the behavior of her hopefully Ex BF.

  I hope you can find a way to keep her from falling back into that trap.

I don’t think it’s a good idea and to be honest, if she wants him back, I don’t think your husband will be able to do much.  Unless there is physical abuse going on – I don’t really think he should be stepping in.


Also – what do you mean by sexual predator?  Is she underage?

@mrshoneybee:  I’m a little confused about what you mean by ‘getting her to see things from a man’s perspective’. Can you elaborate a litte more?

@mrshoneybee:  I mean this in the nicest way though it might not come off that nice in type.

If she has serious mental issues – I don’t think your husband will offer much insight that would be of use to her.  Perhaps she needs to see a different therapist?

I think, if she has serious mental issues, it’s best left to professionals and you and your husband can be there to support and love her.   Having him have a serious talk with her might just make her feel uncomfortable.
