  • YES!!! A man that loves the both of you would never say such things. Move on to bigger and better things!!!
    And SMILE!!
    Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile!!

  • You need to be respected in a marriage, and it is obvious he didn't respect you. Now if you left after he said it in one fight I would say you were jumping the gun. However, I doubt that, and I think that you know what you are doing. :) Good luck with your new found independence.

  • Whoa...... Strong negative opinion he has there! Don't question yourself - stay strong, you did what you did because you know it was the right thing and if you think about it from the outside if you knew someone this happened too what would you tell them to do, you'd tell them the same. You did awesome. Be good to yourselves he obviously wasn't.

  • I'm sure there's more to the story than that, but whatever it is, if you follow your heart you'll be fine. Your urge to protect your child is a good one and that is never a mistake. Good luck to you!!!

  • Yes. Once people in the relationship start with the very cruel and hurtful accusations and name calling. Your a whore, your a bad mother, etc. I truly believe you are at the point of no return.

  • Yes, of course you did the right thing. You must know your daughter deserves better than that, surely you know that....but it doesn't sound like you know that YOU deserve better than that too. You do.
