  • I left my abusive husband years back.
    I had saved up money
    was had it all planned
    was in contact with an abuse center (leaving is the most dangerous time)
    he found my saved money- took it, emptied out the bank accounts
    laughed at me and handed me a 100 dollar bill
    I LEFT HIS ABUSIVE ASS with 100 dollars, and a credit card in my name with lots of credit- which i racked up quickly
    but i was safe

    he NEVER thought i would leave after he took all my money
    he was wrong

  • If there is abuse going on or you are in danger, look in the phone book or online to find a women's shelter nearby where you can go. The staff there will help you find resources. If it's not a situation like that, you need to start stashing away money. Do you have things you can sell? Can you get a part-time job?

  • you leave because it's not good for you to stay in a unhappy marriage. Why do you have nothing? no friends, family, good health. Sounds like you are really down. get some support from us ladies on here, maybe we can help!?

  • You seek help and make things happen.

    What is going on ?

  • A bad marriage gives you less than nothing. Leaving puts you at zero, which is more than less than zero.

    If you're being abused, you call 211 and find a shelter. Even if you're not being abused, you call 211 to find services to help you. Then you find work.
