If you want out, contact an attorney. The laws are different from one place to the next and you need to know how much the laws will or will not support you and your kids. Since he is making good money, he should be able to support you, but you need to see where you stand legally. Thank you for your website. I too am divorcing my abusive husband. It is very difficult because no one sees the person you are dealing with. My husband is very successful, wealthy VP in a large company in Atlanta.
He is very charming and looks non-threatening but he actually has gotten more controlling and financially abusive as our divorce has dragged on for 3 years. I have no family here and my extended family of the past 15 years know nothing of the abuse, just his view of what is going on. Which I guess is normal, since no child grown adult or otherwise want to believe their father can be such a monster.
Not one word from any of them.
The court system ordered him from the home but outside of that, with his financial means he controlled everything , he can continue to drag this out forever. Even though, he is not under the same roof, the control he has over my ability to move forward is immense. I believe he is a sex addict and his secret life will be fully revealed. My concern is for my 13 yr old daughter who may become the victim of his emotional abuse because I am no longer as accessible.
I tried to get a restraining order on my husband but they said unless you have a black eye or broken limb the judge will just laugh at it and throw it out. Thanks for your blog. I am hurt, sad, and frustrated by the actions of my coworker who I believe after doing some reflecting on the past year is passive aggressive.
He started pursuing a friendship with me over a year ago. At that time, red flags went up in my mind but I pushed them aside. He talked about how rough his life has been and how he believed his wife cheated on him. Somehow even after the initial red flags, I let myself fall for him and get too attached to his friendship. We talked all the time. I even let him say inappropriate things and would just laugh it off.
She intercepted a text I sent him saying I missed him. He know blamed me for everything. I feel like a fool for letting myself get used and fall for him. Trying to work through my feelings, but I keep looking back and get upset. Elaine When we become emotionally attached to someone, our perceptions tend to become distorted. It is why it so important to pay attention to those red flags and explore them and if uncertainty exists, keep your distance.
Of course that is sometimes easier said than done. Your friend seems conflicted. He feels his wife has cheated on him, yet he blames you for the destruction of his marriage. Conflicted people say conflicting messages, so anything he has told you is probably a half truth Vulnerability can be a strong aphrodisiac. For those who want to comfort or help others, it is an open door to get close to others. If the hurt persists, find someone to work with who can help you work through your thoughts and emotions and get you back to a productive mindset.
And finding someone to work this stuff out as if it was just a distraction? Sure, it sucks for the guy, but it sucks for Elaine too. I hope this helps! My situation was alot more complex. I had a step father growing up. Im in college and currently still living with him and the rest of my family. Me and my brther were givin harsh whoopins by him sometimes for deserving reasons, but for the Most part, unexplainable ones. For example: I had one for flipping the channel without permission not an initiated rule, no warning My brother had harsh whoppins from age for just about any reason.
Our intelligence was sometimes belittled not directly but through insinuating questions. The reason why i have been so uncertain is because im not sure whether all this was intentional or not. For some reason i feel like i can never approach him about it. He was addressed one time about an incident but it was quickly denied as a misunderstanding.
After reading this I have confirmed that I what i have been feeling in my relationship is true…. I knew this, but never had it put in my face crystal clear until now. I have been in a relationship over a year.

I hurt him by cheating in the beginning and ever since then he has done almost everything on this list. He himself retaliated with many different means to hurt me, except physically hurting me. When I read that list I thought I was reading his biography. I felt his verbal abuse was a result of my actions and I deserved it.
But I did all that one should do when in the wrong and none of it ever made a difference and now I know it never will. I have to let go. I walked away recently, but my emotions are actually wanting me to ask for him back. I will do my best to continue to cut him off, but I am emotionally weak right now. Thank you for sharing your situation and I am glad this site helped you come to some realizations. Your question and concern is how do you change your relationship to yourself, to your needs and desires so they support you as an individual.
There is a need that has you wanting him in your life more so than wanting to be independent. This is not a conscious decision, it is an emotional one and the part of you holding on is holding on to what you fear you will be losing in yourself if you let go. The million dollar question is how does your unconscious create this need. It is not a chemical imbalance, it is not because you are weak, it is not because you are undeserving. But your relationship to yourself will need to become more self supportive. Making a decision like this can be difficult, because relationships are seldom cut and dry.
So while this may bring up conflicts, you have to make a choice and no one else can make this for you. If you need help to sort all this out, find a counselor in your area to work with or give us a call at Once you sort this out, then you want to work on changing yourself and here a counselor will definitely be to your advantage. Hope this helps. I have been exactly where you are with 2 kids and no options.
After this emotional abuse stopped, he became financially abusive. I wondered how we were going to eat because he would spend more partying with friends. After the financial abuse, I started counseling as I went through autism diagnosis for my older son. The family counselor did not label the relationship but guided me to an understanding of it. I slowly began to refuse to play the victim. But, still, I loved him. So I balanced my self-empowerment with doing things to make him happy. I did everything right. One night I was working online to help us pay the bills, and he yelled at me because after I hand-washed the dishes I left them in the dish tray while I was doing my work.
I told him that I would get to it after I finished the work. He yelled at me more, so I told him that he had not done anything to help around the house and could easily do that one chore so that I could focus on making money for us. That man, whom I loved and who loved me the best way he could, put his arm around my throat, flexed until it choked me, and threatened to kill me. Then he immediately started being emotionally abusive again. Two years later, I wish that I had not given him another chance.
He knew that he had me all along. He never physically abused me again. The final straw was when he began emotionally abusing the children, using the fights that I kept away from them as a power play or a method of public humiliation. The point is that it can get out of control fast. They care about how they feel. I hope that my story helps you understand the dangers of backing down.
You are strong. Reclaim your life before he does it for you. It hurts. I have been married for 14 years. My husband is an extreamly successful man and grew up in a family he deems perfect.
Runciman, The Ethics of Drink and Other Social Questions; Or, Joints In Our Social Armour, 1e
I on the other hand had an abusive childhood from 2 to 5 at which time I was placed in foster care. My husband has been diagnosed as a sex addict. For years I tried to get him to acknowledge his addiction, I even had an intervention. The blame for his behavior always fell back to my childhood I was the one who was screwed up. Living with the lies and manipulation for 14 years had me beleiving I was crazy.
I started having panic attacks and went to see a therapist. I was diagnosed as having PTSD. My husbands reaction to this was to go out and have an affair with a stripper half his age, and then of course blame me for the affair. We have been in individual and couples counceling for over a year now. I did file for divorce, but have put it on hold. Was all this abuse intentional or was it the result of his addiction. Everyone else seems to love my spouse and thinks he is a great guy. Is it me who is really the problem?
After reflecting on our marriage I see all the things he did that were covertly abusive but appeared as caring. For example: he used to tell me to go out and meet other moms, but he would never be willing to watch the kids, it was always my job to find child care. Just last weekend we were out with friends to dinner. I am starting to see all of his control tatics for what they are. I have changed alot over this past year and see how the last 14 years beat me down to a shell of a woman.
Is this intentional or is it a symptom of his own problems? I feel like most things I read talk about understanding your spouse and being empathetic. My first instinct when I found out about the affair was to cut my losses and divorce. It seems like the universal message is about how working out your problems and not running will make you a stronger person.
His affair was the straw that broke the camels back. It took something out of my soul. I am so untrusting and have started exhibiting some of my own controlling behaviors on the above list. Our therapist says look for tangible changes. The thing is, my spouse has been a master of making things appear different than they really are. How do you know the changes are real? It sucks not to be able to trust your own intuition.
It seems that there are so many different opinions as to what one should do in this type of situation. It is all so confusing. There are many dynamics playing out here, so there is no way they can all be addressed First, any relationship is a two way street. Both parties have to want to make it work.
Those are conflicting principles many are trapped in. Regardless of how screwed up you believe your past to have been, it in no way makes it OK for someone else to treat you poorly. He just wants things to be right, but that only means he wants it his way You want to understand things, but understand this, all the understanding in the world is not going to change your situation, change your husband or make him stop blaming you.
He is who is his. Is he doing this intentionally? His sex addictions are symptoms of other issues he is dealing with Can he change? Sure, if he really wants to and really puts in the effort and finds the right therapist to work with. While you may love him, his changing is not your problem or concern. It is dysfunctional thinking to believe a marriage or any relationship has to work. Your husband is committed to his own needs first, meaning his relationship to you comes second.
That is the choice you get to make for yourself, what actions am I willing to take Once you are out of the relationship, find someone to work with who can really help you find more supportive beliefs for yourself, so you can let your emotions clear and move on with your life. I know these are hard choices to make, but the alternative of staying will do nothing but bring you down.
I hope this is helpful. As hard as it is for me to say, even in an on line forum, I am the victim of abuse. A middle-aged professional guy. Whimpy, small, demure acting I am not. But somehow the abuse started. Somehow it continued. Somehow it escalated. But the emotional comments were still designed to isolate, demean, and control. All of the warning signs were there. The jokes concerning violence became threats to my life. One day in an unexplained rage, he unexpectedly placed his hands on me in anger by shoving me abruptly from behind.
The hands that had gently caressed my face, cowardly struck me from behind- not once, but twice. It was then that i fully understood the threat of physical harm was a reality. I was able to end the relationship a few months ago. I am working on rebuilding what was damaged over the years we were involved. My doors remain double locked, and I have refused to see him since the breakup. I look over my shoulder when I am out and about- but I am free. Yes, I am free. My heart and spirit are wounded, but they will heal.
There is a silent shame that I carry because I let this happen. Yes, a silent shame. Relationships are never easy. We are melding different personalities, belief systems, emotional sensitivities, attachments and upbringings together to become and build something more than we are on our own. The integration of these differences can create a journey of possibilities that runs the gamut of everything that makes people wonderful and everything that has us questioning the value of mankind.
While painful, if you learn from the experience, if you choose to begin changing your outlook in a way you can empower yourself, then the journey held some value for you. If you only learn to beat yourself up, to see the negativity of others, to build up mistrust or to feel bad, you will probably want to seek some help, especially of this lingers for a long time. I have been in a relationship for the past 3 years with a man and am unsure if he has been emotionally abusive.
Tasha Regardless of whether or not your boyfriend was abusive, he did have problems. In a mature relationship people talk things out or at least attempt to. He has some personal issues and is emotionally unstable. That should have been the sign for you to leave. Now the real issue is that your emotions so clouded your judgment that you did not have the clarity to so what was going on.
Even now, you are beating yourself up and blaming yourself. Relationships are a 2 party interaction. While some people make it difficult for themselves to be in a relationship, it is still a 2 person affair, not one. Tasha I suggest you work with some one to help you 1 work through the trust issues you have with the boyfriend that cheated on you, 2 build up your own self esteem and value 3 learn to let relationships build into something productive very difficult to do in long distance relationships instead of quickly attaching yourself to them and 4 become more effective at processing your emotions.
Remember, the charm and initial attraction to any person is only a small aspect of their overall make up. Relationships must develop. Your current focus is demeaning to you and you are not giving yourself a chance to heal. We all have room to grow, we can all change and while I know this situation has thrown your world upside down, there is light at the end of the tunnel and you will get there quicker by finding some qualified help.
Recently, he talked about us getting engaged. And parents from both sides have agreed. So we are about less than 2 months away from the engagement. We were once in a 6 years relationship but he cheated on me. We broke up. I went through a terrible time as a result. I went into depression but eventually healed. I stayed single for 3 years. During the 3years,there would be times where he would try to find me via text messages with friendly messages. But we have both moved on with our own lives. So last year, after much attempts and the sincere apologies from him , I finally accepted him back into my life.
I had much reservation initially but I figured that since its been 3 years since the breakup , I should just welcome him back. Especially since I do love him still. I noticed the changes in him and all. No doubt I was happy. He is working on a 24hour standby and I totally understand that. We are not staying together. His text messages reduced to a one line texts. And when he makes promises, very seldom would he keep it. I ever asked him and he said he was just tired. But I tried to stay positive and went on to just go on as it is. And I think it worsen. Very often , it ended up with him rushing to hang up cos he need to sleep to go to work.
I never complained. Outings grew lesser. And I ended up being the one who initiate the outings. There were a few occasions where i had Nicely requested his companion to go buy food with me but he refused to and insisted that he would just wait at the carpark. No matter how nice or pretty I look or dress, he never bother giving a compliment much less a smile.
He volunteerarily vowed to quit smoking but didnt keep his promise. I felt suppressed and denied of any emotional connection or a proper communication with him. I thought he would start questioning me why but he only assumed that I must be unwell hence needed to rest. There are however troubling signs in the relationship, for both of you and you may want to really consider where you want to go with this.
However, one of the things dictating the quality of a person is how they hold their word. If you say it, you have made promise. The primary form of how we relate to each other is communication and that is lacking between the two of you. You should sit down with him and have a serious talk about his intention in this relationship and what he wants. You want a serious relationship, treat it seriously and speak what is on your mind. You are not happy about his priorities. If he is not willing to talk about this now, how do you think it will be when you are living together. Whatever the outcome of this relationship, you may want to take some communication courses to improve your ability to express what you feel.
If you feel uncomfortable in expressing yourself, you may want to work with a therapist to help you work through your fears. Hi Reading each persons experience has given me the courage to post- thank you. I am certain that I am in an emotionally abusive relationship and feel so ashamed and stupid that I am in this situation. He has also worked in the mental Heath field for quite some time.
When our daughter was born the birth as quite difficult and resulted in an emergency. Looking back it took me a while to recover from this fact and also adjusting to becoming a new mum foe the first time. I believe that when he seen my vulnerability at this time , this is when things intensified. You see although I am laid back I have always worked, had my own home from a young age and been very capable. After our daughter was born he was accused on bullying at work.
He was eventually found not guilty but he says that the impact of this has effected his life and he has lost all trust in people especially women. I work full time and look after the family. He complains when there is no food shopping done. He does nothing in the house at all. Very recently we had an argument when I told him he was like an adolescent , he told me to f myself and that he doesnot want to be with me as I am evil, make him unwell and probably not well myself.
I am lucky that I have a supportive group of friends and family who reassure me daily that he is not right and I am not them things he says. Just writing this summary is exhausting! I think he is going to leave me soon but I think I should be stronger and make the decision rather then him? Looby Thank you for finding the courage to share your story. It sounds as if your husband needs some help and at the same time is in denial. Not a great combination for improving oneself. Since you are the only person acting like an adult in your house hold, you have to make choices, ones that support you and your daughter.
All support starts with self support, meaning you have to put your best interests first and foremost when aspects of your life and well being are compromised. No one can feel good in this type of environment.. Before you do anything, you may want to talk to a lawyer as to your rights in respect to local laws.
Since you have been supporting him, there may be some procedures you need to follow to start the process. After you get him out, you may want to work with a therapist if needed. Best of luck. Background- I have been with my boyfriend for more than three years. My boyfriend is 24 and I am 25 and we just started to work together and work in law enforcement.
Our relationship moved very quickly.
I moved in with my boyfriend only a month into our relationship my mistake, it was too soon. I am concerned that he might not be right for me and I am trying to decide whether to stay. I love my boyfriend, I share with him everything and he is my support and I thought I loved him very much. He is always there when I need him, always picking up the phone and spending time with me.
We have our inside jokes and laugh a lot together. My friends think he babies me alittle but think its cute and nice. I almost feel dependent on him because he takes over everything but I think it is a good thing that he is so good to me. When we have my friends or family over he makes sure they are taken care off too and plans everything.
I am busy all of the time because I am in a full time doctorate program and I work full time. He says he takes care of everything because he wants things done a certain way and I might mess things up or not do it right. In the beginning he was into me, the way he looked at me was like I was his everything. He even stood up to his mom for me because she was cursing me out because she was jealous I was taking her sons time.
He has always shown how he is so scared to lose me and I make him whole and he needs me. I think that made me want to stay even more but made me feel uncomfortable at times because I want him to be strong on his own too. Maybe I am wrong and many people see it that way? He says I am his only goal and so is family, he just works and is not that passionate to move up in his carrier wish he was he will for me though.
He says his main goal in life is for me to trust him because if he can do that he can do anything. He says, since I am so hard to be in relationship with and complicated it is a real challenge but likes the challenge. He says he likes me because im not materialistic and very honest. He used to break things but more in the beginning of our relationship. He has broken many things such as a chair, a computer monitor, a fence outside, and left indents on doors from punching it.
When we get in fights he says he loses control. He says he would never lay a hand on me and never has hit me or came close. I see how his anger escalates and it appears he does not know how to calm himself. He will get angry when I leave or when something does not go his way. For instance, the computer screen not working he brakes it. Although, other behaviors appear and are getting worse.
Ever so often he reference that he will kill himself when we get in fight. He will crawl on the floor like he has trouble moving for hours and just cry. He gets so upset for what it seems for no reason. On my most recent vacation I was very embarrassed, he felt I was mad but not telling him why. He never apologized but blamed me. I let it go and continued with our relationship. Once he went to the corner, sat down and put a gun to his head after we fight with it pointing the opposite direction for long periods of time.
He claimed after he was trying to put it away but was too weak to put it in his drawer. Once he used a knife when we was mad and stab trees while he was walking. I cried and he told me he would never do anything like that again. I told him to stop he threw the knife into a bush. Later regretted and looked for it. When we had a very small argument he would climb the edge of this wall that inclined and went really high.
This was in Tennessee and a forest was on the other side with black bears all around. When I get angry I walk away and then come back when I feel better. He gets afraid I wont come back and holds me down, I scream for him to let go and cry and freak out. I want to call the police at those moments, but wonder am I over reacting because of my bad childhood?
He has became sexual and starts to kiss me in areas when he is angry.
He never sees anything really wrong with it. He did this about three times he stops pretty quickly and never had forced sex. After I would run to my car and lock the door. My boyfriend has always resent me for walking away and says I need to be adult and talk to him because what would I do if I got mad at the children. I told him I never would do that with children. I walk away to think and then I come back when I have gathered my thoughts. It gets so overwhelming. I left early that day and I was so embarrassed.
He said if he drives on his motorcycle he might get in accident and kill himself. I asked him again an hour later he told me he was looking at porn and thought that fuckbuddies was a porn site. He punched the car roof while driving and started to talk real loud, he said with what I perceive, hatred in his voice, Im going to blow my brains out and make you watch. I am going to do it right next to you.
He told me bad things like I am a bitch. He got out of his car and went to the back where his gun is. I told him to stop, I was so scared. I was at work and he works with me. He said his mind was up, hours passed and I was freaking out, I kept calling him because he works in a different area then me. I told him I might have to call someone, he said go ahead and try to stop me, you are not strong enough, you will just be embarrassed. I called my mom when I was at work, telling her this she said call , my boyfriend and I work in law enforcement, he would lose his job if I baker acted him.
I called his parents, they ask me if he hit me, I told him no, Im just scared he going to hurt himself, I was scared for my safety too alittle. I was worried because of the knives. His dad was there at the house when we arrived. He started to reflect on his life and said that this is all a big joke, and that life is a big joke. He said when he was 16yrs old he was never normal he always wanted a girlfriend, and always thought he would spend the rest of his life with his past girlfriends when he was young. All he wanted was love and never got it even from his mom. His dad was at the house and talked to him when he got there, I left to give him alone time with his dad.
His dad said he knows when he my boyfriend says hes going to do something, he does it and my boyfriend smirked. I left the house and was scared to be in house with him when his dad left. He eventually came outside and acted like nothing happened he acted affectionate with me. He claimed he wrote about his feelings and that helped and he feels better now.
What about how I feel? Am I overreacting? If he is great most of the time but has very bad moments is that a reason to leave? I know I am not perfect, I have trust issues. I feel he is right. He says this but then says he loves me and he will change. He says he learned it is just not worth it and he wants me to give him another chance.
The persons who screech and abuse the drink sellers are even less effective than the men of figures; their opponents laugh at them, and their friends grow deaf and apathetic in the storm of whirling words, while cool outsiders think that we should be better employed if we found fault with ourselves and sat in sackcloth and ashes instead of gnashing teeth at tradesmen who obey a human instinct. The publican is considered, among platform folk in the temperance body, as even worse than a criminal, if we take all things seriously that they choose to say, and I have over and over again heard vague blather about confiscating the drink-sellers' property and reducing them to the state to which they have brought others.
