I Survived

Yes i survived - but my marriage didn't. He never trusted me in the first place and never allowed me to have a life, I think when he came back he couldn't handle his jealousy and I think he thinks I did stuff when he was away - I didn't. When he came back he was sooo aggressive and although we tried to make it work I couldn't put up with the controlling and violence.

Thanks Mandy :)

I am really sorry your marriage could not survive this. I know a friend who's husband left her while he was in the service as well. Something changes about them, especially if they see anything traumatic like their friends dying....<br />

I wish you the best of luck in sorting things out. Whether it be you being strong in your new life or him realizing you didn't wait for him for nothing.

Yep I know - still hard but I'll get there!

I'm glad that you survived...sorry your marriage did not, but if he was violent and controlling then the best thing was to get out.
