My Brother Did Something So Disgusting-
Find a Conversation

My younger brother (16 years younger- and one of twins) is going through a stressful period right now, new career path, unhappy in his marriage and has been drinking a bit heavily I suspect, in the evenings. We have always been close, as I feel like I practically raised him. Our mother really didn't want additional children when they ( the twins) came along so she basically neglected them, did her own thing and I picked up the slack. I graduated from college, moved out , and have a very successful career and family of my own. I've always encouraged my brother to realize his full potential, encouraged him to finish college, helped him with homework or whatever he needed and he's now , career wise, in a good place. He's said many times he's very grateful for me and the support I've given him. This past weekend he texted me and was talking to me about pressure that his wife was putting on him to leave his new position so they can move closer to her family. She is unsupportive of him, and evidently they argue a lot. Somehow during the texting my brother started taking the conversation into an entirely different, not so good, direction. He had been drinking for sure, but he started making derisive comments about my husband... Who is a great guy by the way, and started making sexual comments to me...IIke "If I weren't your brother I'd do this and that to you..." I was very uncomfortable and told him so. He apologized , and I stopped texting and went to sleep. The next morning I wake up and there are several additional messages of the same type and a picture of his genitals! I can only imagine he must have lost his mind! I talk to my husband about it , deciding what to do and say... But before I can do anything he send an apogetic text saying he was drunk and she shouldn't have spoken to me that way or sent pictures. I haven't responded because frankly I have no idea what to say. I'm so freaked out and disgusted that I'm at a loss for words. I don't see how we can ever have a "normal" relationship again. Suggestions?
