    I met him when I was 16 working at a pizza

    place. We moved in together 2 months later as my dad decided to abandon me. I broke up with him twice b/c I was feeling unhappy. But he always made me feel awful and guilty enough for me to return to him. I ended up marrying him thinking that there is no one else out there that...
