How was he reformed? His beliefs didn't need to be changed. He just exited the group. But while he was there, he did positive things for those that the group targeted. He's kind of awesome.

Thank you for sharing. My husband is 26 years older and it's shocking how much people feel the need to voice their opinions.

Although, I am incredibly relieved that this story ended happily. I feel there are many unanswered questions: Did she ever confront her abusers? Does she still have a relationship with her family? Who were the actual abusers? Were criminal charges ever brought against them?

thank G-d your relationship and marriage came without struggle or strife. the vicious cycle of abuse came to an end when real love was found. not all the abused become abusers or choose abusive partners. I'm sorry it wasn't until college and finding this someone that finally you could stand up to the parents .

What an incredibly whitewashed and privileged view of pedophilia. We get to hear about his "sex addiction" and his wife finding her strength and her poor children. Real live children were exploited to feed this man's pedophilia. Prettying it up as a love story just makes it grosser.

I haven't listened to this yet... I'm not sure if I'll be able to. roughly 2 years ago my other half had a psychotic break and for a long time I've been occasionally writing to her or myself...im not sure which sometimes. I write about how hard it is trying to help her while the new person that's taken over her tries her best to be mercilessly cruel. I don't know if I'll ever get to meet the woman I'm desperately in love with again. it's possible because of her family's history that the fix could literally be as simple as supplementing some lacking hormones naturally but after trying everything I can legally and other things that aren't, I haven't been able to get her the help she needs. I can't give up and leave her alone trapped by the unassailable reasoning of the illogical, where any and everything that happens is further proof of whatever she needs to deny the truth.
