Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My true confession. Bash if you will

I am leaving my husband. He is an abusive controlling asshole. 

But I am not leaving yet. 

He does not hit me or my children. Its emotional abuse. And only at me, not the children. (otherwise this wouldnt even be a question) 


I am staying with him until i save money. 

Im a SAHM. He is the worker. 

So that means, I am using him for his money.

It does have an effect on the children indirectly. So its like they are the ones its directed at as far as the children feel. You want the money if it makes to feel better take the paycheck and go.

This was me about two years ago except he had control of the money so I was trying to figure out how to get money. Yes, I know...get a job...but he would control that money, too. Luckily one of his good friends finally stepped in after seeing how he really is and got me out of there. My parents stepped up after and now here I am. Remarried to a good man and a new, happier life.

I'm in the same exact situation. But I did get a job. Trying to save money is hard and I don't know if I'll be able to afford living without him. :(

Your children are silent victims so don't think they don't get hurt from it

good for you to get away and you're playing it smart and doing what is best for your kids by waiting until you are financially on your feet. Good luck wit the job search! (if you can get some education out of him too, that would be good.) He owes you all the money he's got for how awful he's treating you.

btw you know you'll get child support, right? Like don't stay too long and waste too many more months on him when you can have a good bit of the money anyways.
