  • If he's in prison for 2 years for domestic violence against you then it was probably something very serious. He tried to KILL you? Why the HELL would you want someone like that around your kids, father or not?

  • OH my girl! I am worried for you! Please DO NOT go back to him! Just because he went to jail does not mean he is rehilibitated!!!!!! What happens the next time he gets mad??? you DID mention that he tried to KILL you!!! think of your kids here if he was successful where would THEY be??? let alone you??@?! JMO but I would divorce him before he comes out then run and NOT have anything to do with him and I would even not let him see the kids unless supervised! You need to protect yourself and your kids.... screw what he is thinking and feeling!

  • Let him go....or you are going to be dead before your kids are grown.

  • I can't say if prison is changing him or not but do you really want to put yourself and your children in that situation again? Lots of people claim to change and jail or prison does make them sing that song for as long as they are in there. They may act sweet and changed when they first get home but old habits die hard and tend to resurface. I do commend you for trying to stick it out for 2 years while he sits in prison, but if it were me I would move on. Good luck with this and may god bless and guide you.

  • It would not be wise to take him back.

  • he's likely stewing in prison and will get out angrier and more violent than before. I am nearly 100% certain he wont get out on time, though. He'll fight in there and have additional time added on.

    1) are one/both of those kids his? get DNA tests if needed and get his rights terminated
    2) move
    3) get orders for protection for you and any family/friends of yours he knows the address's of
    4) contact the warden, parole board, and local womens shelter for help, funding, legal aid, and suggestions on additional things to help keep you and those kids alive when he's released.

    good luck, think smart. that love/relationship is over. period. you do not want to have a violent felon with you and your kids. it's a bad thing.

  • I'd move on. If he tried to kill you, under meds or not, he tried to kill you.

  • from my understand people come out of prison even worse off than they were before. why would you want to go back to that? you still have a few hrs, hopefully you'll met someone decent in the mean time.

  • The predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Very few violent men ever change. Why put your kids in that position?

    I would move on. Are you surviving without him? Probably YES, so why take him back? Is he good for your kids? Be honest with yourself.

    Good Luck to you and your kids. God Bless You All.
