A. and once I can afford to leave I will. He's not abusing me, so I think I can stick it out.

I stay hoping he will change. Total ass. Therapist says she don't see him changing. So only time will tell my youngest is 2 and it would break my heart for him and daddy to seperate (which dh should worry about that) been married 5 years married and we got together when I was 16 married at 19. Life is hard.

I'm no longer in it but for two years I stayed because he pretended to do the work to change. He was in anger management and counseling. He acted as if he was working through all of his issues but the truth was that he was going to those people and discussing me. After I kicked him out the final time I found out that his counselor kept trying to get me to come in so he could diagnose me with a personality disorder based off what my ex was saying.

A, b, and d. Mostly because of d. We were very happy together for a long time. I hope this is just a rough patch and we'll end up stronger when we get through it.
