    He Isolated Me From My Family

    I got married when I was 22 to a 36 year old doctor. My family wasn't impoverished, but they weren't that well off. My decision to marry him was complicated, and socioeconomics weighed heavily on it. He wasn't a bad man. He did good work as a surgeon, took good care of me, and he...

    My husband would do random phone checks

    and wake me up in the middle of the night to question mysterious numbers, "friends" on Instagram and pictures I would post. He said that if I wanted to stay in this relationship, I would not be allowed to go anywhere without him. I told him, I cannot do that. That restrained...

    He Likes To Think He's Right, But In Reality_________________

    As much as I do love my husband, he can come across as controlling in some facets. For example, he has told me numerous times what I can and cannot eat and when I can and cannot eat. I do understand that eating anything late at night ( 10 pm, for example) is a poor idea for...

    I hate my husband. I hate looking at his face.

    I hate how mean he is. I hate how everything is about his needs and wants and desires. I wish I could scream and never stop. I wish I didn't have to wake up tomorrow.
