    Girl you need help to see what a normal family does. They don't pin you to the floor and beat you or lock you in a closet!

    What the heck? I like actually don't get this story. First off you had a normal family, but their abusive. But you love them together but yet you wanted them divorced? Did the open relationship help that abuse and now your parents are happy? Do the other significant others know about the past abuse? And now your parents are supportive for you? What happened between you and your supposed friends are they like not your friends because of your family? And why the heck do you still love your parents?!!!!!

    I am against open relationships, specially when you are married. Like marrying someone means you are gonna devote your life to that person and only that person. Yes you can divorce if things go south, but it’s not like an open relationship

    I can't believe the hateful comments here. This girl poured her soul out about her past and how she accepted her family and how they were able to heal. It was clear that the parents knew they were being abusive and sought a solution. This was the solution they found and it apparently worked. She said "who knows where we would be..." Most likely the parents would be in prison and the kids would be in the foster system or worse. This open relationship clearly saved them from all that!

    It's clear that these parents had issues and that they knew it. And they found the strength and courage to find a solution. And the storyteller was happy that they were now a loving and stable family. It took her a lot of soul-searching (things like this always do) but she remembered where they were before and it shows that she's accepted it and that they were all better for it.

    She said that people shouldn't be quick to judge. But apparently, that fell on deaf ears!

    Okay this is why I think some of these videos are made because Oh a open relationship is sooooo terrible(which really is) oh but the physical abuse is fine! Like if I was her I would call 911 on their @$$e$ because I knew 911 sense I was 3 BUT OOOOHHHH Your okay with your dad not telling you this until your 15 THAT'S JUST BAD like she would BE WAYYY MORE MAD IF YOU TOLD HER SOOOO LATE! And what? The husband has 3 wifes?? And I just it's totally stupid! Also if he felt so sad to tell her that he was "cheating" Why would he do it anyways? Same as the mom! LIKE TALKING TO HER CHILDREN SAYING I WISH YOU WERE NEVER BORN?! AND THEY DO NOTHING ABOUT THAT but the WHOLE THING IS PAYED ATTENTION TO NOT HOW THEY TREATED THEIR CHILDREN?! I'm surprised the neighbors haven't heard about this CRAP! I'm glad that this girl got a successful job and stuff but if I was her I would leave them and this is opinion so don't @ me!

    Nothing wrong with open relationships or polyamory. The abuse of the kids however, that was wrong. Unequivocally wrong. The parents should have sought help for the mental health issues they were having.

    Thank goodness for Paul.
