I have a bit of an indepth question.
It is understood that parents are to be respected and loved and ties with family are to be kept.
what happens in the case of abusive parents? Do they loose their right to respect and obediance because they neglected their responcibility for caring for their children?
I had a discussion with my husband, he was angry over a man who was abusing his friend, and was wanting him dead. After getting at him about how such thoughts are wrong to wish death and suffering on someone, I asked him "well what about my dad, he has doen the same to his wife and to me" he told me its different because he is my father.
Why is it that if a husband abuses a wife she can leave and people dislike him and he looses his rights to her (as it should be, no woman should be abused) but it seems that if a father is abusive to his daughter she is supposed to sit back and deal with it because it is her father?
This doesn't make sence to me.
Don't get me wrong I don't want my dad dead, but I havn't spoken to him since I was 16, and I know he still hasnt changed cause I havbe had a few dangerous run ins with him over the past 10 years, and my aunts keep me informed about him. If he would change I would work to reconcile, I have tried 3 times before with all attampts failed. I feel like he has lost the priviledge of being involved in my life because of what he did and he is not sorry nor has he changed.
Am I wrong?
