Couple saw something, but won't say something

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: A year ago my husband and I went to visit his relatives for a week. At the time I was pregnant with my first baby.

Toward the end of our visit, while conversing in the kitchen, my brother-in-law showed us some pictures of us that he had uploaded onto his iPad.

He handed my husband his iPad to have a closer look.

In that moment, going through the pictures, we saw some other pictures.

The moment was brief, but we both saw pictures saved on the iPad of nude young girls. They appeared to be very young pre-pubescent girls.

My husband and I saw these photos very briefly and next thing we knew, the iPad was back in his brother's hands.


My gut instinct told me that something wasn't right. Amy, I chose to not report it as we didn't know for sure what we saw, and I didn't want to stir up drama.

So here we are a year later and the whole thing still doesn't sit well with me.

Any time I bring it up, my husband says we should have reported it when we first saw it.

I'm torn. I can barely talk to his brother. I don't want him staying with us. To make it more complicated, he's my baby's uncle.
