Most of you know that Clemon and I met in 1997 through our professions in real estate. It was strictly business. Last year I happened upon him in prison where he had already served 7 years of a 10 year sentence for taking the law into his own hands. After much communication we entered into a relationship. Next, he began to introduce me to his immediate family. Initially, his mother and sister was absolutely THRILLED about our relationship. I would talk with them for hours over the phone. We live in different states. Long story short, after a couple of months of communication with them. They began to disclose things about his past in a means to end our relationship. This include matters about some arrests for petty things when he was younger. They have attacked his character and have pretty much written him off as a lost cause. Nonetheless, whenever he and I speak he always talks about how excited he is about me bonding with his family. And that he can't wait for all of us to do things together when he comes home. Yet, he has no clue that his mother and sister actually want nothing to do with him. It hurts me to listen to him express his love for them. Knowing fully well their feelings are not mutual. I've been so tempted to tell him. But I'm not sure if I should. Yes,he has done some things in his past. But, I know for a fact that he has changed tremendously and that he's changing constantly. I often wonder is they recall one fact. He committed those petty crimes as a young adult. Later to become a VERY SUCCESSFUL real estate investor. It wasn't until many many years later when someone stole $50,000 from him that he took the law into his own hands and is now serving time for it. What should I do? Tell or not? Renee'
