My husband told me on Friday that he is a survivor of 10 years of very frequent abuse by an adult male family friend. My world is crumbling... I'm so sad though I feel that the heaviness of this has not yet hit me all the way. My husband and I have been together 10 years and married 3. I can not believe that he could not tell me until now. It was only until a week ago when he threatened suicide and later decided to go to treatment for alcoholism that this all came out. I'm just... overwhelmed and sad.
