My husband has always been emotionally abusive, but tonight he reached a new low--he punched me in the chest twice, threw me against a wall, and choked me, all while I was holding our two year old. Then he yanked her out of my arms. I tried to hold onto her, but then I felt it was like King Solomon and I should let go so she wouldn't get pulled apart. He locked her in her room and kept screaming at me. He told me to get the hell out but hid my keys. I told him I wasn't going anywhere without my little girl. I told him that I should have left him long ago and I really should now. He said it was illegal for me to take her across state lines. I don't think this is true, but wanted to make sure. I tried googling the law but nothing came up. We live in Arkansas, but my family are in other states.
