Subject: Abusive Relationship
Dear Steve and Shirley, I have been with my soon to be ex-husband for 7 years. We have 3 children together and I have 3 from a prior marriage. When I first met him, he brought so much joy into our lives… at least that’s what it seemed like at the time. He became verbally abusive and at times, physically abusive. He started telling the children very negative comments about me, for example: lazy, not a real mother, sorry excuse for a woman, he calls me the H-word, B-word, low-life and it goes on. He has also cheated to the point of taking my daughter along for his flings and has brought one back to our home. I found pictures of her on my bed. Well, to make a long story short, he tried to have me arrested after he was the one that physically hurt me. I could never call the police and have him arrested… I couldn’t see myself sending him to jail. Now we have a long battle ahead of us. We both filed domestic violence and restraining orders. I also filed for divorce. But I can’t help but still feel guilty and sad. Somehow, I still feel like I could have done something different in our relationship. My family thinks I am crazy for still being so nice, even after everything he’s done to me. Steve please give me your opinion. I want to hate him so I can get over this. The children are so sad that he is gone. He was very active with all of the children.
