Get out of there.  Get your things together, get your finances in order and in your name and just leave.  Don’t tell him and don’t be alone with him at all.  He is dangerous.

Remember you are going to have the most wonderful christmas ever because this christmas you won’t be called retarded and stupid.

Lets face it….that one night a week you spend in the hotel wasn’t just because of the long commute, it’s because it was a night’s break for all that horrible abuse.

You take care and let us know how you are doing.  So many HUGS!

My heart aches for you. Nobody deserves anything that you have described here, let alone from someone who has promised their life to you. Keep taking these steps in the right direction, it will be hard and maybe seem impossible at times but you’ll get to where you need to be in no time. You just deserve an indescribable amount more than this coward and this relationship. Stay strong

You absolutely must leave.  He is an abuser.  His personality didn’t change.  He just let his real self show once he felt secure that he “had” you.

You have nothing about which to be embarassed.  He does.

Nothing much more to add, pretty much what everyone else has said. And good for you for telling your mom! That’s a great first step to leaving. Don’t be alone with that guy ever again.

You’re smart and you’ll be better off without him. Hope it goes as smoothly as possible, though with a man-child like that I’m sure you’ll have some rough times ahead. Good luck and it’ll be so worth it. Get your life back!

Firstly, WELL DONE for telling your mom! This will be hard but it’s the first step to a happier and safer you.

Secondly, your husband is an epic dickhead. It’s abuse plain and simple

Thinking of you xx

You did not fail. If anything you put everything into making this marriage work. Your time, effort and all your hopes and dreams. I’m so sorry you are in this situation but I am glad that you are prepared to move on. Best of wishes with your fresh start in life. Once the sadness subsides you will be filled with so much excitement and hope for a new and happier future. Trust me!

shellybelly83:  Hugs! Staying would have been throwing away years of your life–leaving is what you needed to do to pursue the possibilities of a happy marriage and happy family in your future. This is not your failure.

Best wishes to you, Bee. I know that this is hard, but you’ve taken the first steps toward a happier life.

shellybelly83:  I am so sorry you are going through all of this. Your husband is mentally ill, and needs treatment. You already know you must leave. DO IT. This is madness. Don’t keep feeding into it. Be frank with your closest friends and ask them to help you move. Move much closer to your job. One foot in front of the other, one step at a time. 

The subtext of your narrative is that you feel that you have only been married a year, which feels like a failure. YOU DID NOT FAIL. Your circumstances changed, your husband showed his true colors and is scarily controlling and VIOLENT. It is actually a life or death situation for you. MOVE OUT ASAP. I can’t stress that enough! Your wellbeing is far more important.

I wish you every ounce of strength you will need to get your life in order and on track to normality and happiness. Hugs to you.
