The topic is sensitive and tends to make people uncomfortable. The destructive behaviors revolve around her abuse to my husband, identified as emotional incest. Enmeshed family dynamics exacerbate the behaviors.

My husband and I have spent the first ten years of our marriage overcoming her toxic ways, seeking some sense of validation that we were doing the right thing by standing up to her, no matter how great the punishment. While there are clinical books available that have helped us better understand what my husband is victim to, there are few memoirs or stories detailing the various paths. We searched for any thread of hope, strength, and perspective we could find to help overcome the challenges and struggles.

We hope our story will do this for someone else in a similar situation. The abuse is so shameful and easy to ignore. It tears up so many marriages. Disrupting my husbands family of origin, for us, trumped the decision to forge a healthier cycle for our own family and children. We think this abuse is more pervasive than what families admit to, especially in a society where men tend to disengage and women tend to use their children to fill the emotional void. Thank you for listening to our voice!
