     Before my sister and I and our boyfriends crowded into the rear of dad's Cadillac, my boyfriend grabbed me and fervently kissed me, just as our parents approached.  I didn't push away or object.  But I felt humiliated by his theatrics as my family looked on.  I didn't know what to do.   Years later, my sister and her husband brought up the incident to show how “not nice” I had been.  I felt humiliated.  But this time, I raged at their judgement.  I felt I had been assaulted twice.
