Should I Stay Or Go?
Ok, so recently me and my wife got into a huge fight. To make a long story short, it got loud and out of control and she threw an etch-a-sketch at me (which I also threw back at her). After that she proceeded to slap me twice. After getting slapped twice I pushed her backwards and told her to stop hitting me. After being hit I contacted a friend and asked if I could stay with him for a while until things cooled off in my house. As I was packing and getting ready to go my wife just up and left the house and left our 2 year old with me. So I waited until she got back because I could not leave with our daughter being there. Well she never returned but the MP's did (I'm in the military). They asked me a few questions and told me I was being detained and asked me to come with them to make a statement. I was placed in handcuffs and had to wait for child services to come take our daughter. After a few hours passed and my wife and I had both made our statements I was taken aside and told by CID (criminal investigative dept) that they had determined that my wife was in fact the aggressor and that I was the victim of this arguement; which they would indicate in their report to the court. They proceeded to release me to my battalion and told me that my wife was being charged with criminal domestic violence. I am now stuck in the barracks for a minimum of 30 days. Since I have been in the barracks she has told me she loves me and is so sorry for what she has done and is begging for me to give her another chance. But the thing is I dont know if I should (or can) give it to her. First of all we fight all of the time as is and we have always said we will make it work and give it one more chance. We've tried counseling too and that did not work for us either, so I'm at a loss as to how it will get better even though she swears it will. It's so hard for me to decide what to do because of my daughter whom I love more than anything, seriously. But, it's so hard to forgive her for humiliating me and for what she did. So, what should I do? Should I stay or go?
