I've been married for 3 years.I have a 2 year old son with my husband.Over the years my husband has controlled my life and been abusive.I have put up with all of the abuse because he always threatened my life and my family's life.I now have proof that he has also been having an affair.He constantly degraded me.He even threatened to kill our child.I finally reached out for help after he got violent with my mother and grandmother because they tried to protect me when he was beating me.i made him leave our home.and got a protection order against him.I also want to file for divorce.In my heart I know I don't want him in my life anymore.I lived in fear,I couldn't see my own family.but he has told my lawyer that he will fight this and not let me go.My lawyer said I should think of my baby.But I also think that it's better for my baby to have divorced parents than have to see his mom get beat up.
File a report with the police. Take your baby and go to a secure shelter. You need to get out now. NOW. For your safety, your child’s and your family’s safety. Go get an EPO (emergency protective order). Buy a big dog. Take self defence classes. Tell everyone of his behavior so it is known. Get a new lawyer. Whoever you have is selling you bs. Your priority is you and your child. Do not become another statistic. Your child is far better off never knowing the domestic abuse as a baby than learning it is ok to see dad beat mom.
I just came across your post. I understand you are in a dicey situation and I can relate. I enjoy talking about this and related topics. I would love to listen to your story and it's status and hopefully help you out. Kindly stay in touch through my email ( gratefulsoul051 @ gmail. com)
Yes please get the divorce and protect yourself and your baby. Praying for you and your child for peace. Just know that the teen years will be the toughest but it will be good if he’s not around then because he would probably start beating your child. I’m sad for your situation. I’m so very sorry you have to endure this.
