My own situation is that my mother was the perpetrator, and while my family presumably didn't guess what happened back then (although I think some suspected), they continued to support her as she continued to be emotionally abusive to me throughout my life. I moved hundreds of miles away, but continued to be in close contact with my mother, largely by phone, in a weirdly intensive, and utterly unhealthy, relationship. My father's been out of the picture since the divorce, in my teens. I finally broke off contact with my mother a year ago, and since I knew my family would always support her over me, I broke off contact with them as well. It wasn't easy, a few of them were nice people in many ways, but it remains the best decision I ever made, and I wish I'd made it much, much earlier. It's very hard to explain to other people, however, since I don't generally explain about the abuse, and our society treats families as holy, never to be disrupted. Which is a joke, because frankly I wish I'd grown up in foster care.
