Why does he write me saying I should hear " my side of the story"?
IS there another side? Even if she slapped him.... Does that justify the facts that he punched her, kicked with steel toed boots, and pulled his curio cabinet on top of her? Does that sound remotely like " tit for tat"?
I didn 't fall for the manipulation of writing him back. My teen son finds it inexcusable ( we saw her injuries btw.... )
He's pulling the I 'm in AA now ( yeah ya are, not the right kind of bars for drinkin) " things are going to get much better now. I will go to meetings once or twice a day. Great! More power to you, but your son is still disgusted and scared of you.
I'm getting off track, but the back story of his alcoholism goes back years. I actually quit the occassional drink because my son was so..,, disapproving and I felt it was in his best interest to not see me drink ever. It was pretty easy actually... Of course I was never dependent on it.
I've always said from drinking age " I don't do anything drunk, I wouldn't do sober" I believe that. If you want to cheat, bit o liquid courage will make it happen. It's the same with violence, IMO
SO, is there REALLY, in your opinion , a "my side of the story " of a woman beater? Is there a magic reason that make it okay to slam a piece of furniture on top of her? Even if there was a spat? I mean they were not EVEN DATING! Just roommates.
What 's a good reason to go all" Hulk " on a female?
Son made my husband ( whom he now calls daddy full time since this, change the locks before he gets out. He's a wreck over this whole thing, obviously.
Is there REALLY another side?
