Ooh Redpepper *HUGS* I'm sorry they took it so hard and in the way they expressed their concerns to you. Hopefully time will heal this too. From what I have read of your posts, you seem to be a very strong woman. I have every faith that you will come through this even stronger than before.
Wish I could give you a real hug.
You mentioned about the relationship being strong before saying anything. Those were our thoughts as well. I'm sure no one will be able to shake your family. And you do have a wonderful family with your husband, Mono and your son (again, from what I've heard).
Hopefully they will get over this sooner rather than later.
