My husband of 13 years is awaiting sentencing. I am having the hardest time deciding how to handle this situation. Maybe some of you can help. He was always a wonderful husband and father. He was the one that my kids always went to for anything. I couldn't have asked for a better marriage. Then my world came crashing down 4 months ago. I found out that he had inappropriately touched our daughters several years ago. When confronted about it he fully admitted what he had done and drove to the police station to turn himself in. He gave a full confession and was incarcerated. My husband is currently looking at 3 to life. My daughters are pushing for him to get one year and outpatient treatment but the District attorney doesn't seem to want to do that. They have expressed that they are more hurt by having him out of their lives then anything else. The both insist that what did happen was a long time ago and that it was very short lived. They cant stand the thought of being away from their father untill they are 18 ( that is a few years away for both of them). Part of me hates him for what he did and another part of me is trying to understand him. My daughters are fighting to get him back but I am not sure if that is the right thing for them. I am so upside down right now and don't know what the right thing to do is. Can anyone help?
