Incredible they caught the perpetrator. Heartbreaking for the family to find out their daughter and grandson were not alive. Very disturbing that the boyfriend/ father would commit such gruesome murders.

I’m surprised they didn’t test for drugs and alcohol following  Tiger Woods’ crash. I thought that would be standard procedure

That is so infuriating! I feel so angry about this. I'm sure the jerk will reoffend at some point (possibly has already). 

There is clearly not enough support for victims in this situation.

Great innovation. I'm sure it will help.

She sounds amazing! Love her empathy and world view. Let's move beyond patriarchy and capitalism to systems, communities and values that support everybody, especially the vulnerable. ❤️

I don't follow people like her as I would be too deoressed to get out if bed. But I've learnt the hard way and I feel.sorry for my daughter and other young women who have yet to realise that following people with unattainable beauty is bad for your mental health.

Omg the frustration and stress of living with someone who is terrible with money! I chose to get out of for this and other reasons. 

Well done!

I'm sorry but this husband is kind of hopeless. I've never been with a man who couldn't do basic things like this. Sure I've carried the mental load in many was but my 3 long term partners have all helped out waaaay more than this dude.

In our culture it's so unacceptable to be old, but most of us hope to live that long??? I realise when I watch comedies how many jokes there are about “old people”.  The older I get the more uncomfortable these make me feel. I guess I realise that I'm visibly getting older, moving into the unacceptable category.

How revolting! That some police officers admired this killer for “cleaning up the streets”... ie murdering marginalised women making a living in a bloody racist patriarchy.

I gave up drinking mid 2019 after I found hangxiety was becoming crippling. It’s almost 2 years now and I’m so used to not drinking I rarely think about it. But whenever I’m invited to a party it is something I stress over as I know everyone else will be drinking. But overall the pros of being sober far outweigh the cons.

I also wanted to add that problem drinking can be a symptom of undiagnosed adult adhd, which was true in my case. Now I take medication for my adhd and it really helps me with emotional regulation, social skills and focus. Which in turn helps me to stay sober!

“Because, as long as making major life changes and personal sacrifices to support your wife’s happiness are considered signs of weakness, we have a problem.” - well said!

@Zepgirl I am always a bit shocked when I see American women birthing on their backs in movies or in other media. It seems so Victorian. Is that part of the problem- that they don’t practice more active labour like we do in Australia  ?

I can so relate..spent almost a decade with a narcissist. After a few years, I remember feeling like it was so much easier and nicer when he was not home! As the author said, as soon as he walked in the door, the entire household had to revolve around him...When he was out doing whatever the F he wanted, at least we could have fun and relax.

Wow. I hadn’t thought of it like that. At the time it seemed like or the perception was that it had been a deliberate act to get publicity, a stunt. But the forced apology probably had a lot to do with that. Very unfair!

Inspirational story!

Had a similar thing happen to me. It’s painful and there is nothing you can do - no legal avenues to try to get visitation as far as I’m aware. And it’s not something you can really talk about with most people. So yeah, it’s lonely.
