@Jw1724:  I understand exactly where you are coming from. Hard to give up on someone you love who is doing what he can to make a change for the better. Good luck.

@Jw1724:  ‘I’m happy about your update.  

I doubt anyone here or anywhere else could  post about the not so great moments in our relationships and not have everyone shout “breakup!”  

People aren’t perfect so relationships aren’t either.  Its lovely that your FI heard you,  cared and is making a real effort.

@Jw1724:  I’m so glad you guys had a good talk!

If you can sift through the “kick him to the curb!” replies that pop up, the Bee is really an amazing resource for advice. I get ideas for better communication with my own DH when reading other Bees’ threads.

Well, good for him (and for you) – hopefully things only get better.

 I’m glad things worked out! Keep in mind that we can only comment on the information we are given.  So of course, when you’re angry and venting, a situation can seem much worse than it really is. And yes, you will see a lot of knee jerk reactions. If I said ‘my fiance and I had a fight and he cursed SO much’, I guarantee you people will say he’s horrible and abusive and to leave him. When in fact, we both curse on a regular basis, and it’s not anything significant.

@Jw1724:  I’m glad to see that things are getting better. I have to say that I was one of those “kick him to the curb” bees (sorry!) but that’s my knee-jerk reaction to jealousy (from my own bad experiences in an emotionally abusive and controlling relationship).

I’m glad to see this update. I think he really is turning a corner and that night was a wakeup call for him.

Jw1724:  That is so incredibly fantastic! It shows great strength to recognise when you are making yourself miserable and to be able to reach out for help to better yourself. But I also know that he struggled in this process and took it out on you.

It was through your own strength of character and wonderful support you have helped him to be able to recognise what he was doing and to seek help.

Long story short, I think that together you are building a wonderfully strong relationship and I wish you all the best for the future.
