It will be a complete uphill battle for Kathy to stand her ground with Rich. I was like that with my first husband and he was totally shocked when I became a strong woman....no, change that to "when the strong woman in me" came out and no longer took his controlling ways. Hope she stays the course.
I don't understand Melissa's total devotion to a man (her father) who was not a good example of a father or a husband. Guess it's the old story of the abused child loving the abusing parent the most, which is very sad. But she talks about him with such devotion all the while it was her mother who stayed the good parent and raised her while daddy was out playing around on the whole family. Hard for me to understand.
