Today, my family got very upset with me when I advised my brother’s girlfriend to take the kids and leave. They’re more upset with me telling her that, than the fact that my brother is an abusive serial cheater and a raging alcoholic, who hits her and the kids. FML

You did the right thing! Your family is just blinded by their love for him. Thank goodness you’re not! I sincerely hope his wife listens to your advice

You did the right thing op, I did the same thing to my dads new wife. That didn’t go down well either 🤷‍♀️ keep your head up, you are a good person.

As someone who grew up in a domestic violence situation, also due to a raging alcoholic, you can't imagine the lasting effect this has on kids. A few other suggestions: she should first and foremost get out, take a self defense course, and get "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin de Becker, a six dollar paperback by a guy whose father killed his mother. If all else fails get the police involved.

OP, this isn't a FML. you have done a good thing or are trying to do a good thing for her. which speaks so many volumes, dont ever feel bad for doing the right thing and dont consider doing the right thing to be a fuck my life. its a fml that your family even had that reaction to begin with

would that more people the world were like OP. you gave solid advice to a woman in an abusive relationship, advice meant to save her and her children from being used as punching bags by an asshole. your family's reaction to you doing this says more about them then you.
