Things have been very rocky between my husband and I for awhile now. He has been verbally abusive and emotionally abusive. I have done things I am so not proud of that have helped break down our marriage. The sad thing is, as I look back, our relationship has always been like this. Even in the beginning he always put his wants and needs before anyone else’s. If I would call or text him, he would ignore me but if I didn’t answer right away to him then he would pitch a fit. When we did argue, I would ask him why he ever proposed, he said he was desperate or he thought i would say no. I just kind of brushed it off as him being mad. He has never cheated on me that I know of but he does go to the bars every single weekend while i am home with our son. We fight about that. He says it’s his time and he will do what he wants. Not once has he ever offered to watch our son so I could maybe go out with my girlfriends. He says I need to get a sitter. Our son is only little once, so why would i want to lose that time with my child just to go to the bars.
Today would be our 2 year anniversary adn we haven’t spoken to each other civilally in 3 days. We have the usual conversation about the laundry or dinner or whatever but nothing else. Haven’t said I love you to each other in 2 weeks now.
I have nothing in my heart for him anymore. He is mean to my girls. He said they need discipline. True, but they don’t need to be screamed at or made to feel like crap.
I have started trying to find a new place to live. I thought about renting a mobile home near my daughter’s school because I like the area.
I am just numb. I don’t think there is anything worth saving or even trying to save.

It doesn’t sound to me like there’s anything worth trying to save either. You should leave if this is how your life is. It’s not worth it. He’s not worth it.

I know this is a hard time for you. If you ever waiver, I want you to remember the reason my parents divorced: they wanted me to know their relationship wasn’t what I should be looking for. It doesn’t sound like you and your husband’s relationship is the kind that you’d want your children in, either, so you’re helping them to see that (and also getting yourself out of what sounds like an absolutely untenable situation).

Sounds like you made the right decision…. even if it was tough. I’m glad you are thinking of your children. Like dr phil says… for children it is better to be from a broken home than living in one. Stay safe xx

@mrskisstobe: I am so sorry this is happening to you, but you are making the right choice by leaving. You need to put yourself in a more positive environment – not just for yourself but for the kiddos. ::Hugs::
