I'm dating a girl and have been off and on for some time now.
She was aloof and distant and hard to get to open up emotionally for awhile but said shed explain one day. I assumed it was child abuse but let her take her time in telling me.
She told me that when they were younger her family was barely making ends meet. Her dad was under a lot of stress financially so she says her dad made her and her brother pose for child pornography in order to sell it to make money. She says this lasted till she was 13 and they said they couldn't sell it anymore because she was too old.
She told me thus story with tears in her eyes but says she doesn't blame her dad for initiating it or her mom for letting it continue. That her dad was under a lot of stress and they needed the money.
I tried to get her to explain what happened, just to wrap my head around it but she said I didn't want to know because "it would piss you off too much" but did tell me that she wasn't penetrated by him.
But we live with her parents now. And I'm uneasy. She sàys it doesn't bother her, that despite everything she still loves her parents.
I'm angry for her and don't know how she can just let the whole thing go.
I want to know what happened in detail. Not a easy thing to ask her.
What are your thoughts?
