I Finally Had To Leave...I thought I had finally met the greatest man. I had already been married before for 10 years to the father of my children. We met on an on line dating website and dated for almost two years. Everyone said we had the "perfect relationship" and I thought we did too. My kids loved him and I had no doubt I would be married to this man for the rest of my life. Boy was I wrong! About 6 months into the marriage things went downhill. He became jealous and started calling me names. I could not go anywhere without him. He was so critical of everything I did and constantly was putting me and my children down. Then at about the 1 year mark it happened, he slapped me across the face. I just could not believe it. To make a long story short, over the course of four years the name calling, put downs, and slapping became more frequent. The end game though came one night when out of no where and really over nothing he punched me repeatedly in the jaw and chest. That was a first. I left him a couple of months ago. It is still hard but I am much happier and so are my children.
