My step-father touched me inappropriately (under my shirt but over my bra, and in my pants but over my underwear) when I was 17. I am now 27. I have forgiven him. I was able to put that aside and look at all the good qualities that he has...he was a good dad. He just messed up. My husband respects my choice but he said that he couldn't forgive someone for doing something like that. I am wondering if you could forgive someone for this? I don't want to put a rift in the family and I do want a relationship with him because he is a good guy. He just unfortunately did this bad thing. What do you all think?Answer Question

I was sexually abused by my step-dad for several years. It started when I was about 8 or 9. It has caused major conflict between my mother and me. They are now divorced. I didn't tell my mom about it at the time. I was young and I didn't want to be the reason they got divorced. I finally told my mom when I was 18 and she didn't believe me. My step-dad finally confessed to my mom. At the time she stayed married to him and forgave him.
