Is my brother abusing this woman?
I'm not sure of the status of the relationship as my brother tells people he's "happily single" but there is this younger woman living in his house for the past couple of years. She has a one year old daughter and is 8 months pregnant. My brother has only brought her and her baby around us a couple of times. He's never claimed paternity, but the baby does run to him and say "daddy" when he's around. She looks like her mother, so none of us know for sure. I've tried talking to her but she doesn't talk a lot; in fact whenever you say something to her, she looks to my brother for a head nod (permission I guess), and then answers you. She follows him around like a puppy; seriously, if he goes to the bathroom, she follows. On Facebook I noticed him and his friends joking about his single status; one of them said "what do you call Alaina then?" and he responded with "she's not my woman, she's my property." I asked him what was she to her and if the baby that's here and the one she's carrying is his; he said "everything doesn't need a label" and "what do you think?" I've tried calling his house, but only he answers and he always says she can't come to the phone. I'm worried.
