  • I was. My first two marriages were physically and mentally abusive. I took some courses at the church that really helped. There is a program called celebrate recovery and they have a course for co dependants. Look up celebraterecovery.com. It is amazing!

  • Honestly if you are in an abusive relationship, you need to call the police. They will be arrested and they will go to jail. My husband and I went through this two years ago and it was for the better. He went to jail, and had to fines and had to take a LONG class. We have been married for 4 years (celebrated yesterday!) and it was the BEST thing I ever did. It didn't feel like it at the time, but we both agree it was the needed shot in the arm for our marriage.

  • If you are truly in an abusive relationship that you DON'T want to save then you need to start planning for your escape. You need to start socking away some emergency money and start planning for your kids. There are places that accept women and children that need to stay hidden for awhile. Call your police department and they will direct you to where you would need to go.

  • No, but I grew up in an abusive home. Saw my mom get beat all the time. She never got the strenght to leave, she waited until my dad humiliated her by getting another woman pregnant and left her. If you are in an abusive relationship, please leave. It will be hard, but so will staying. It is better for you and your kids to leave!

  • I think you should get out for your kids, if nothing else! What are you teaching them? You deserve better, and remember, what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger!!
