  •  It Hurts My Head (6+ / 0-)

    A few years ago my grandfather passed away. 93 years young. At the funeral a person said to me, "when your mom was married before your father ...."

    My mom and dad have been married 47 years. I had never heard this. My mom married before. I learned the man beat and raped my mother and in the 60s, she was strong enough to walk away.

    It isn't something we are allowed to talk about with my mom (wishes of my dad), but gosh darn it I love the fact she stood up for herself.

    I don't know how women can't do the same. Well I get it, but I wish other men like myself, my brother, my dad, would have their backs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
