I'm still not sure how I feel about this
I started going out with my first husband at 14 ( I knew him from the age of 9) he used to help my brother babysit me.
He was 23 when we started dating. That might sound awful, but I was very grown up at that age and was very independant. My parents worked a lot and I never stayed at home during school holidays.
We never had a physical relationship until I was 16. We were together until I was nearly 40. It was a relationship that was fraught with difficulties not least the dis approval of my parents. Trust me I'd jumped out of bedroom windows and all sorts.
I was quite aware of my actions and when we moved in together at 17 it wasn't easy keeping up the rent on our bedsit, working and generally being ostracised from family.
Eventually my family did accept him and they became very close, although his parents never approved of me, very odd.
So I know he was in a position where he shouldn't of crossed the line and certainly should of backed off enough to give her a chance to have a young life and wait, but sometimes it's the here and now that matters more .
I live a few hundred yards away from him now and we get on fine, it was just we spent so much time on trying to survive and bringing up our children we somehow lost what we were about which was sad, but we are both happier people for it.
I hope the full force of the law is not used to the letter it is a very emotive time for them both
