I was in a serious relationship with my boyfriend for a little over 3 years. Things were great in the beginning. Then, I started getting upset over things he would do, like putting friends and drugs before me. We eventually got passed that until I did something unreal. He had a best friend who treated me like I was lower than dirt. I felt like everything with his friend was a competition between him and I. Until one day, when my boyfriend and I got into a huge fight, his best friend was the one there to comfort me and I ended up sleeping with him.
After that one time I should have just told my boyfriend what had happened but I didn’t. His friend started using it against me and, before you knew it, I ended up sleeping with him multiple times over a span of about a year.

After he found out we did, he wanted to know everything, and I still continued to lie about what had actually happened.
I blamed every little bit on his friend when I was at fault in some way too. I mean I did go through with it and all.

My sibling, who is my only living relative, is currently incarcerated. The crimes committed were quite serious, involving major breaches of trust but not violence. After having been imprisoned for about a decade, my sibling may be released soon. Because of a substantial difference in our ages, we did not grow up together. As adults, we lived in different cities.
If released, my sibling will be destitute, divorced, childless and most likely without friends. By contrast, I have had a successful career and fulfilling personal relationships. I am now retired with savings that are sufficient for my needs, but my retirement planning never anticipated support for an unexpected dependent. Any estate remaining upon my death has been pledged to scholarship funds at my undergraduate and graduate school alma maters.
I have no positive feelings toward my sibling and I have no interest in beginning a relationship now. Experts whom I have consulted have described my sibling as sociopathic. Am I ethically obligated to provide for my sibling upon release?

However, the problems presented by the sociopath tend to be mostly social problems rather than symptoms of mental illness or criminal behaviours, although these are not excluded in some sociopaths. They view the rules and expectations of society regarding acceptable behaviours as inconvenient and unreasonable and impediments to their inclinations and intentions.
Sociopaths can be identified in adolescence or even earlier. Children who regularly engage in arson, vandalism, consistent lying, theft, aggression towards others, and the torturing of animals are showing the early tendencies and signs of sociopathy and they are indifferent to parental punishment and pain. They are self-centred, narcissistic individuals who are impulsive, manipulative, and consistently untruthful.
As sociopaths grow into adulthood they often engage in alcohol and drug abuse and this serves to exacerbate their behaviours and conduct towards others, and they can show extreme violence towards others when under the influence of alcohol or drugs, yet blame the drink or drugs for their actions.
