Is It Time To Leave?Long story short...I've been married for 18 years (2nd marriage for both of us). I have an older son from my previous marriage, he has two daughters and we have 1 son together. He is verbally and emotionally abusive. He is also now disabled and loves to take out his frustrations on me. He insults me, tells me I'm a bad mother, calls me fat, and calls me offensive names when he is angry. He demands respect from our son and doesn't give any in return. He expects to be respected ba
I will be going to counseling with my son. I don't want my husband to go with us. I don't want to continue this charade of a marriage anymore. I gave him the best years of my life, and the only worthwhile thing he gave me was my son. My oldest son was raised by his father because my husband couldn't provide a stable life for us. Because he could not keep a job, we moved a lot. I didn't want my kids to have to go through that anymore. Of course,he takes every opportunity to remind me how I "gave my son away." His own daughters don't talk to him because he never paid child support. He owes a lot of money in back support (his daughters are now adults). That will not become my problem.
I've had enough. I am biding my time and am planning to leave him. I can't do this anymore.
