A 14-year-old girl overheard her 18-year-old sister, Abby, flirting with her elder sister’s 32-year-old husband, John, while on a family vacation. She was uncomfortable with the inappropriate exchange and was unsure whether to disclose the affair or keep quiet, so she turned to Reddit for guidance. Unable to make up her mind, the girl apologized to the internet community and got advice on how to get her family together and tell them about the upsetting discovery.
She described what happened after making her confession in a later post. After confronting Abby and John, her parents and older sister Claire found out that they had been involved. The fallout was severe: John departed the lake house following a fierce argument with Claire and the girl’s father, and Abby was immediately ejected by her mother.
The 14-year-old was happy that her sister knew the truth, even though she felt bad for interfering with their vacation. Redditors that Abby get therapy in response to their horror at the 32-year-old man’s exploitation of an 18-year-old girl. Regarding Abby as a victim, some questioned whether the parents should have kicked her out, while others discussed how John’s authority as a police officer played a role in the unsettling affair.
