And that stopped me. ” During this time Mary had been able to buy a flat of her own, using money that she could take from Peter’s business account, since she kept his books. Peter says this was not the first time that they had considered divorce. They had started drifting apart at the time that their daughters left home, when they discovered how few interests they now had in common. He feels that Mary was now exploiting their unhappy situation. “I do honestly believe that Mary was using this allegation as a lever, so she could demand whatever she wanted, knowing that I couldn’t object to it because she would then publicly announce that I had been accused of abusing my daughter.

So I did, I phoned them and told my mother-in-law, ‘Janet has announced that when she was a child both you and grandpa sexually abused her’. It wasn’t an easy thing to say. Mother-in-law was just totally and utterly… she couldn’t believe it was me. She kept saying, ‘Are you really saying that?

They tried to get an early ticket to come home, and when they got back Mary wanted to go and see them with Janet and all the family and confront them.

Why would she say these things? At first I felt that I was the victim, but about two weeks later, after I had spoken to a few people I got the sense that they didn’t believe Jane’s story. So I said to myself, ‘I’ve got a clear conscience’. That’s when I was able to start sleeping again. But we didn’t tell most people, mainly to protect Jane. We still don’t talk about it, and there must be some people who have only heard Jane’s side of the story who still believe it. ” Wendy has supported Mark throughout this ordeal, and now takes up the story.
