Should I leave my marriage?
So my husband is working away.. he puts no effort into talking to me or our daughter. I even paid for an apartment so we could all move there together and now a week from moving he has stopped talking to me. What kills me is that I have been with him through thick and thin and he has done horrible things to me.. He's lied, been verbally abusive and I'm still here... Is it time to leave? I mean all he does is hurt me, I have no friends because of him, I have no social life and I'm always at home.. Please help.
I'm so sorry you're facing struggles in your marriage. Have you tried discussing your feelings with your husband? Before you decide to leave him, I'd encourage you talk to a marriage therapist or counselor who would be able to give you some clarity on how to best handle your situation. And, if you reside in the United States, you may call this number 855-382-5433. They provide a free phone consultation with a licensed counselor. Praying for you!
Yes, I think you should end the abuse you're suffering from this man. Seek individual counseling with a therapist trained in emotional abuse. Do not go to couples/marital therapy. That will hurt you and give him more ammunition to use against you. Learn to set strong boundaries and have enforceable consequences. Give yourself the kind of love you've been giving him.
