How would you explain this?

I just talked to my fiance and he said that his fingernail scratch/mark that is on his face was as a result from him slapping my son. What I am wondering is how does that happen? Wouldnt if you slapped someone that just your hand would be the only thing that touched the persons face? This is making me wonder if he was really upset when he slapped him and just how hard did he do it. Well it doesnt matter because we are leaving Friday for a women's shelter. I have had enough of his abuse. Whether it be mental, emotional or physical.

  • Slapping as in on the face? How old is your son? You are right to leave him.

  • You go girl sometimes thats what you;ve gotta do. When I was a teen I ended up in a shelter with my mom and it wasn't all that bad. She got her independence back in no time.

  • I just did this girl, good luck and stick to the exit plan. If at first you don't succeed try try again. I don't know about how this could happen, what he is telling you is a lie or distortion of the truth because thats the MO of a guy like this.

  • I wouldn't be wondering what happened, I would just be getting out. Do not take the abuse, I've been there done that and it is not a life for anyone to have. Protect your child, stick to your plan and leave as soon as you can. If someone told me they slapped my child, that would be the end of it, no explanation necessary. Of course he is going to lie about what happened and he will blame it on your son. Leave, and good luck.
