Delurking to ask, does anyone know what exactly transpired between MS and Logan's parents?

Also, I love reading all of your perspectives. I just thought her life was such a hot mess, I could not wrap my head around her or her constant issues.

Wow – I had never read her before this post. I have only gone back as far as a couple divorce posts, but wow these are heartbreaking. I'm sorry the whole thing is such a mess.

Melissa told her MIL something very personal in confidence. Her MIL then told the SIL who then told her pastor, etc. etc. It was at a time where Melissa was just coming to terms with telling select people about it and she felt (rightly, I think) that her MIL had horribly betrayed her by passing along extremely sensitive info about her to other people.

 

That coupled with her father's subsequent suicide and no wonder Melissa has trust and intimacy issues. I'm not excusing her behaviour, but that's a lot of baggage to carry.

And she later announced that the 'very personal' issue was her childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her father. The long-term ramifications of sexual abuse on your mental health cannot be underestimated.

Yeah, if this story is true, her ILs really are awful, awful people. Which explains Logan.

From her facebook just now:

 

"Logan Summers hacked into my domain hosting and changed my information redirecting my website, inexplicably, to Uncrate.com.

 

When I got emails notifying me about pending changes (I didn't make) I asked him if he was trying to change the registrant information.

 

He said he wasn't.

 

When I called today to find out why my website was forwarding to Uncrate; they told me Logan had called to change the information on the same day the site was set to forward to Uncrate.

 

When I asked him about this again…he admitted it. I am beyond livid.

 

Shocked. Stunned. Pissed."

I think too that they were pretty indignant that she was hurt or upset in the first place, which just kind of compounded the whole thing. I believe she'd said something like the fact that they never thought they did anything wrong at all was most of what the problem was.

I wonder if this will be the first of many cocktail shaker-aided acts of assholery. I'm staying tuned.

This guy is a piece of work.

Who's the crazy one now, mofo?

Why the hell did he redirect her site to uncrate.com.  Is there something about that site she hates? 

And why is Logan antagonizing the mother of his children, a woman he knows to have suffered from deep instability?  I had some sympathy for him because dealing with mental illness is hard.  But this action shows him to be a colossal prick.  You don't prank the unstable woman who has birthed your kids.  You don't behave this way, period.

Christ, what an asshole.

Wow, color me totally shocked, seriously. People do that? I always thought she was the sole possessor of the crazy, but now, not so much.

Yeah, this. Eff any more "we don't know the whole story" speculation on my part. The story is that he's a douche.

Melissa has always struck me as painfully fragile- like a turtle missing its shell, she is so raw and wounded.

 

And I have always wondered about Logan, what is damaged in him that he needed a wife who was so wounded and fragile. Whole, healthy, emotionally intact men want to ally themselves with strong partners.
