So my husband is not the man i married, he does not work and always complaine about having to "babysit" our son while I am in work o while i'm in class(I work and go to school full time). On top of this he does not do ANY work around the house and has the audacity to call me a bitch or a cunt EVERY day because we argue. I have decided this is not the type of environment that I want to raise our son in and I have begun looking at daycares and I have talked to the court and they will provide me with a lawyer at little or no cost because of my low income and student status. I am sure that i will win custody of our son as my husband has a felony and will not have a home, job, or car (i payed for all of these). My question is, are there any other women who went through this and is it normal to feel scared/unsure of your future? This is so difficult and if anyone has any words or wisdom I would really appreciate it.Answer Question

Yes... I have BTDT!!
I took my three kids and started over almost three years ago. Yes, I was scared and it was a hard step to take, but we are SO much better off without my ex!! He was a lot like yours... wouldn't work, stayed drunk, was verbally and physically abusive.... He was NOT a good example for my kids and I couldn't let him abuse me any more in front of them. Abuse, whether verbal or physical is never good for children to have to deal with!!
It sounds like you are on the right track!! Please ignore the anon above that obviously has no clue what kind of situation you are in! You are only putting your son's needs first, and that is what is most important right now!!
You are more than welcome to private message me anytime you need some encouragement!!
