You have to think about WHY you stay with a man who treats you like he has.
You don't list ONE good quality of his.
Do you feel sorry for him? That is a hold. So is finances and good sex and some couples stay together for the kids.
(Please use punctuation in your reply. It is difficult to read when it runs together.)
I do care for him but I do feel sorry too. I don't know why ?We don't have kids . I'm the head of household. Sex is okay is just I have no passion for him . Good qualities he can be romantic , he'll go out of his way to help you if you're stranded,and he can b nice if he want to be .I guess what sets me off so bad there is no talking to him without him getting defensive you tell them he did something wrong he brings up everything you have done wrong ,like u cash the car and that was to years ago .I myself would like to figure this out.
That may be HIS temperament or your temperament. Who knows? In any case, you two are like oil and vinegar.
How about learning how to discuss, not argue?
Google "How to argue constructively" on the web. Maybe there will be some tips
Your heart is gone, you stated that. That means you will eventually walk away completely somewhere down the line.
You're still thinking about him, but you need to think about yourself and your actions.
If you've had 3 affairs since you left, then your actions are speaking, you've gone somewhere else to give you comfort.
He states, he can't be with a woman who doesn't respect him but his actions have spoken to you numerous times with violence...this is no respect for you there. And you state, he's been disrespectful to you since the first 6 months together.
Your husband is a man who will struggle with any relationship because he resorts to physical and verbal abuse... that's immaturity (at the very least) among other things.
If he says you have provoked him (an excuse) then he has 'anger buttons' pretty close to the surface and unless he realises this and looks at helping himself, then I don't understand why you would want/need to be with someone who causes you damage in every way.
Yes, it could be you feeling sorry for him...you could have a guilt burden about it all, but if you have, you'll never move on completely because you'll be shackled to him.
10 years marriage is a long time to get over, it's a substantial period of your life but if you can't look forward to the next chapter in your life without this man, then the next chapter will just be the misery and confusion you know now.
