Some time ago my sister's husband made sexual advances toward me. It was extremely inappropriate and uncomfortable. It wasn't just verbal he actually tried to get physical and I had to push him away. He has a history of cheating on her. When I told my sister and mom about it, my sister questioned her husband and he denied it. She refuses to believe me. My husband and I have decided not to join family gatherings where my brother-in-law is present. Now I am being made out to be the bad guy who won't attend family functions. My family just acts like it didn't happen and that if it did I should just get over it. I miss my sister and the family gatherings. I just don't what I am suppose to do greensad.gif Suggestions?

I don't really have any suggestions, just wanted to say sorry you're having to go through this. I'm sure it really sucks!

Clearly they are all in denial, but given your brother-in-law's inclination for cheating, I'd say things have a way of working out :)
