I don’t know what to do. I live in what has been an amazing culdesac with 4 couples and their amazing kiddos. We have all been here for 6 years. My neighbor sexually assaulted me. Short story; get together at my house and I go to my bedroom and pass out he comes in while everyone is in the kitchen and starts touching me. I wake up, stop it, but a few weeks later he continues to make advances. His wife is my friend. I would want to know but it will fracture our kids and our relationship.
