In part, I have always wondered if keeping the rape under wraps led to her breakdown. She'd loved Bill before the rape. And well after she wanted to be with him over Mickey. But she never really faced the rape. No idea if that ever came into play during the initial breakdown story. Probably not. Its safe to say no one in the family knows about Mike's true origins.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Bill's rape of Laura was before my time. Anyone remember how it was handled? Did he experience any remorse or shame? Did he face any censure from his family or the town and have to redeem himself, or was his crime swept under the rug because he married his victim?
The rape was never revealed, to my knowledge. Bill was drunk and he definitely assaulted Laura. Bill did not remember what happened and when he asked Laura, she said she had turned him away and nothing happened. She lied to preserve Mickey and Bill's relationship.
That's interesting. I didn't think Jennifer ever knew, but I always wondered about the rest of the family.
