We have been married for a few years and over time our fights have escalated. My husband has pushed me a few times but not every time we argue. Last night, it got to the point where he was so mad, he came over to me and physically held me down and was in my face. I told him repeatedly that he was hurting me and to get away from me. He wouldn't and this only continued. He told me that the only reason it hurt was because I was fighting him and he would ignore my attempts to get away. Finally I fought him off off me and went to the bedroom.
From there he went into the room and started arguing with me some more and telling me everything that is wrong in our relationship is because of me. I feel so beat down and defeated and if I left, I don't know what to do, I've been a SAHM for years. What do I do?

There are all kinds of abuses--verbal, emotional, mental, and physical. Anytime someone is demeaning towards you, makes you feel inferior, outright blames you for things beyond your control--that would be considered abuse!
If you are not happy with how you are treated, you CAN leave! Call a women's shelter--they will tell you what to do and to proceed. They will support you, help you find a job, and get on your own two feet. EVERYONE has marketble skills, it just may take a little introspection and confidence for you to realize you ARE worth something and you DO have skills and talents that WILL benefit someone else.
Everyone deserves to live happily ever after!
