You did not play chicken by waiting until you were away from him for him to find out a report was filed, that was the safest thing you could have done!

Thank you for the update and I am very proud of you for doing this. Stay strong. It’s so great to finally read an update from a Bee that took initiative and removed herself from the situation!

I have a lot of respect for you for doing such a brave thing, and most importantly, the right thing.  You were absolutely right when you said you wouldn’t have had to do this in the first place if he’d never laid a hand on you.  Just know that you have a lot of support here, a lot of prayers for you, and a place to vent to.  Best of luck to you in this process – you are obviously a very strong soul.

You did the right thing.  My guess is he’ll play nice for awhile and he’ll resort back to old habits.  I don’t trust that this will improve his character one bit.

I am glad to hear you made the right choice. 

My only other word of advice is find another place to live for 30 days. He is mad. He knows where you live. He has access to a gun.

You did the right thing. He should not in *any* way be mad at you, he should be mad at himself. Wishing all the best for you.

I know this is hard – sending supporting vibes your way. Don’t be afraid to reach out to a friend or family member for support. It might feel impossible, but I’m sure they would want to be there for you.

I also wanted to chime in and say how proud of you I am! And you certainly did not do anything cowardly…you were making sure you were safe. I know that you’re hoping to salvage your marriage after this, but please be sure that you have a plan B in case he comes out of this counseling and nothing has changed.

Best update I’ve seen. I am so glad that you stuck to your guns. Dont let him guilt trip you. If he goes through the necessary training and steps, he will come back knowing that he cant just apologize this away.

I am so glad you posted an update!!  And I’m so glad (and proud) that you did the right thing and filed a report.

I just hope that this time apart will make you realize that you are stronger than you thought and that you don’t need him bringing you down.  Try to go out with friends and get your mind off of that loser.  He’s only mad at you because you stood up for yourself.  Just be careful and don’t let him back into your life too quickly or easily… He needs to earn your trust again if you really want to try to make this work.
