Refusing a proposal due to concerns regarding the family's chastity and modesty

Q: Would it be wise to marry my first cousin whose sister got divorced but his family sent her back with her ex-husband (who actually orally gave her talaaq 3 times) knowing the ex-husband had given his sister divorce? She is now living with her ex-husband and his family. Thus frustrates me and her brother has asked for my proposal. 

A: Your concerns are valid. There is no respect for modesty and chastity. How can you be comfortable in such a home?

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
