    all of this history is “just that”, history. which is useless unless you’re writing a book! We could say the person is a social deviant but then a label doesn’t help either! You cannot change another person’s way of life, even if he asked for your help, you still cannot do any good! The only thing you or I or anybody is to show compassion and be a role model. Any counselor will agree, you or I will have to sit and watch and hope for a change. As for his wife she is an enabler, although she probably doesn’t know this, but she keeps him in an area of which she can have a control over a particular part of his life, in other words the family structure is defunct!
    a popular reason of why so many people disagree with the message, is because their insecurities are a sign of problems in the near future.
