I didn't know that.  Sorry PJ

Quoting muslimahpj:

I was verbally and emotionally abused in the past. My first husband was very controlling and very verbally abusive. I left once, went back and in less than a year I was gone for good.

My second husband is an alcoholic, there was a lot of manipulation, verbal and emotional abuse. He would act like he was going to hit me, but, he never did. He would tear things up in the house instead. Took me 6 yrs to get away from him. We didnt even live together for 2 yrs of the marriage. After moving back in together, within about 6 months, we were divorced. I cant tell you how many times I heard the promise, I will stop, I will change, please, yada yada, yada. It never ends. It's been about 4 yrs since our divorce and he is still doing the same thing, drinking and going to jail.

I was with my xdf the last 2 1/2 years. The last year and a half i was verbally, physically, and emotionally abused. I left him 3 times and the third time was 3 weeks ago. The first 2 times he promised to get help and change. He did for about a week after i came back. Then he was back to the same old yelling name calling person he promised not to be. Last month at my dds 8th bday party my mom pulled me aside and told me if i didnt leave my xdf she was gonna fight me in court for custody of dd. Ive had dd since i was 16 im not gonna let her be taken away for me to be with a man. I can find another man that will treat me and her right. I havent looked back since i left. I have a protection order and all of his emails are blocked from contacting me.
