Good for you. It's amazing the number of ******** out there. There are good, honest, caring men, but they are often hard to find. You can do it. Trust me.

My husband had an affair when I was pregnant with my first son. I should have left, but didn't have the courage to do it alone. I am inspired at your strength.

Wow, I'm so glad you posted this. I never thought I would find someone to relate to. I am going through the exact same thing right now. Now that its been several years, how is everything going?

Wow you are very strong, more power! Godbless!

wow you are a very strong woman and power to you for staying strong

stay strong, never lose that bond with your child, you are his everything right now and he's so blessed to have a mom that loves him so very much. My best wishes to you and your son. Karma be with you on your journey through life. Peace and Light

that's good you left him, unfortunately not many people will get out of an abusive relationship. Being a mom is the best but sometimes it gets frustrating lol. I know i'm 23 with two kids but I still have a little help from my husband (their dad). You are a great mom already because now your son can grow up without having to know the abuse his dad would have probably given him. I hope you get full custody of him :)

I really admire you. I wish I can be brave enough to raise my children alone. I think you will be a great mom and find another wonderful man in your life again.

I am currently going through a very hard time deciding if I should leave my baby daddy. I love him dearly but I am in an abusive relationship. I am scared to be without him but scared to be with him. Your message is relieving and giving me hope that I can be strong through a very very tough time.

Good luck to you! It is better to remove you and yours from a volitile life than remain in it just so the child can have 2 parents. I admire your courage and wish you the best.

congrats on leaving him...some women don't have the courage to do it especially if they have a child by em

That is great you have a kid. Plus you deserve better and shouldn't have to settle with a creep like him. You can do better and will be happy once you do.
