It isn't about his abuse - as someone else said - it is about how he is not dealing with it.

Run, but do him a solid favor and make sure he knows it is about how he is dealing with the abuse and not that he was abused.

He can get help, he can recover and live a wonderful life. HE has to do that though. No one can do it for him.

As lame as it sounds (I know it takes a lot of hard work to heal), every day since I heard the story I have been saying I love you and Im sorry and thinking of my survivor.


Dear mkn10 you got many good advices in this difficult situation and I'm happy that you found some strength to take care for yourself. As Still said you are real diamond and I've seen you shining through this topic.

There is nothing left to say beside:

We love you and we are sorry!

Others have already given you good advice. The situation doesn't sound healthy for you but even though, like another poster already mentioned communcate that you left because he is not dealing with his abuse.
Im also worried about possible STDs.

Pleae, get tested. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Stay strong. I wish I had my youth back. I would have left. It's much harder to do with children and ailing health. still, it is a choice, though.
Be well.
Find a man who treats you well.

Hey girl, my, my, you've had some tough time for weekend.
Please try next time to avoid to get drunk and then to talk with man who is survivor using drugs, alcohol and has many other problems. That is the worst case scenario. And something is telling me that you are not aware in full with what you are dealing and that you here also have serious issues.

Please be more careful and more protective to self and think what more you should do for yourself, it seems you need some help and additional support.
Read more here, please. There are many similar stories where is more than visible how toxic such relationship can bee toward spouses.
Take care of yourself diamond!

You aren't describing a situation that I or any of the other wives that I correspond with regularly, can relate to. You also are not married nor do you have children with this man.

Get the hell out of Dodge!!!! GTFO!!!

Marriage makes things more complicated. Kids--10 times that. My husband has never, NEVER, spoken to me like that, treated me like that. You cannot save him. I'd be more apt to say wait and see (if you so desired) if he were getting help. But he's not!!

Run!!!!! Would you take that shit if he weren't abused?? I hope not!!!

And the STD thing is real. Do you want kids one day? Maybe you'll get lucky and what you catch won't impact your fertility (if it doesn't kill you first). I'd ask for a show of hands of wives who discovered the infidelity because of the STD. My gyno told me I need to get tested for the next EIGHT years (and I came up clear--this time!) It enrages me to think about it so I stuff it down until its time for my annual.

YOU KNOW!! You get to choose!! choose well! choose health. choose wholeness!

Many of us wives had no clue our lives are in danger because of the promiscuity. Emotional abuse and verbal abuse is unacceptable. I'm begging you, leave!!!
