  • My hub was an ass too. In the beginning he was slightly on the crazy side but nothing too serious. Then he started being abusive. He didn't go to counceling ever but he did however stop after I had our son. Since then, he hasn't laid one hand on me in anger. Through the time he was being an ass he was also a SEVERE drunk, he'd drink a half gallon of gin every single day. He was a drug addict before that and replaced his use of drugs with drinking. NOW he's freaking awesome and I'm happy that I decided to stick by him but this is not something I would tell anyone else to do. I'm not going to be the one to tell you to get out of the relationship either. I told someone else this earlier and I think it's going to be my new motto, decide what you can and will not live with. After that then proceed accordingly. Good luck to you babe!

  • Ok let's see if I understand. You divorced him but lived with him and all was going well so you remarried him. Now you bought a home and the former anger issues have risen again? It sort of shows that you are used to his treatment of you and you just stay. I don't think you are your breaking point after being out of it then choosing to not only stay with him but to remarry him. Divorce him again and see if he behaves again. Why would you remarry a guy who abuses you. You are old enough to know they don't stop.
