I was raped four days ago in my own home by a man I know and my children were home. (They did not and do not know I was raped - thank God.) Everyone is telling me I need to press charges. If I hear "what if he does this to someone else" I'm going to puke again. I don't want him to rape anyone else, but I can not handle a trial, I can't even handle my own divorce. Pressing charges won't make me feel better. I don't think anything will. He'll get an attorney that will portray me as a whore and led him on. My life will be under a microscope and my actions will be scrutinized. I am honestly afraid of that and I don't want my children to hear about this or have to deal with this. Do I make sense to anyone or do I need to press charges?
