My friend of 18 yrs called me this morning to let me know that her ex-husband threaten to kill her and their 4 kids. She said, she don't think he will go through with it, but I'm scared to death that he might, and I dont know what to do about that news.
This is what happen:
They met when she was 13 yrs old, he was her first everything. They were married for 12 yrs with 4 kids. He listened to his family to divorced her to marry someone else. When the marriage didn't work out, he came back and begged her to get back together, which they did. He left her again to be with another woman, but kept going back and forth. Finally, she got fed up and started dating after so many years. She met this older gentleman who treated her and her kids so good. She said he did things to her that her no good ex-husband had never done. The ex-husband still coming to the house asking for sex. Finally, she stood up to him and said no. She told him that she's in a relationship with someone now and doesn't want to mess it up, and she's tired of him treating her like a doormat. He has the nerve to tell her that she needs to get back to the way she use to be and do what he said or he will come and kill her and the kids...She took it as a joke, and I told her to call the police and file a complaint, because I don't think it was funny.
Should she tell the kids about what happen? Should she contact the police? What if he gets really violent when he finds out she call the police? I'm scared for her and the kids.
