I would suggest going to see a counselor. They will be able to help you sort through all of the things you are feeling.

I am so terribly sorry  that you are going through all of this.

I’m really sorry sweetie. I read through some of your old posts, and all I can say is that the mental issues he has are extremely difficult to deal with & severe personality changes are common with the disorders he has. I’m sure that he loved you, and meant his vows. Religiously…often with personality disorders people go through phases with religion too. I wish I had advice for you, but all I can really say is that you deserve stability in your life, and he is unable to provide that for you. God has a funny way of pushing us into the lives we’re supposed to lead. It hurts now, but you have wonderful things ahead of you. Try to talk to your pastor, friends, & family often and build a community of support. It will get better, stay strong.

@nyscpa2be:  I’m so sorry for what you’re going through.  I know this is hard, but perhaps “his” rule that the two of you have no communication may actually be the best thing for the both of you. You were abused and it is usually best for victims of abuse not to have contact with their abusers.  I know that you really miss him right now, but there will come a day when you won’t anymore.  Someday you’ll be COMPLETELY glad to be rid of this man, especially after you’ve moved on with someone who you’ll have a healthy relationship with.  It’s heartbreaking that you didn’t know that your husband was like this before you married him but sometimes that’s just how it goes and it isn’t your fault.  Perhaps it isn’t even really HIS fault either.  Mental illness is an extremely powerful and sometimes unpredictable thing.

As for the whole part about the vows, it’s sad but a LOT of people don’t actually mean their vows–they’re only saying whatever they have to say to get married.  Your husband is certainly not the only one who was insincere about it although that doesn’t make it right.  It’s also entirely possible that he DID mean his vows at the time and perhaps now he doesn’t anymore as a result of the mental illness he appears to be suffering from (if I remember correctly from your previous posts).  The best you can do is mean your own vows and someday you will find someone who will be worthy of them, someone who will also mean his vows in return. 🙂

Try to believe me when I tell you that better days lie ahead.  You WILL get through this.  Hang in there.  We’re here for you.

I’m so very sorry that you’re going through this. I understand this grief. It’s completely normal, and you should allow yourself to grieve. The death of any major relationship, let alone a marriage, is a terrible event. My thoughts are with you. ((Hugs))

This quote always give me comfort. 

“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”
 
 You’re going to be ok. One day it will hurt less.

Oh, I am so sorry for the heartache you are going through. I am sure you are having trouble reconciling the man you once loved with the man who was so rotten, and even abusive. It sounds like once you got married, his true personality came out. Everyone says you are better without him, and they are right. A man who treats a wife like that, a man whose wife cannot feel safe with him, does not deserve to be married. You have to believe this, and realize that everyday it will get just a little bit easier.
