it is going to take a lot of faith and will power. I too was married to a mentally abusive husband, but at the time i left i was just recovering from having a fourth child and had no means of support. As much as i did not want to ask for public assistance(welfare) i took what i could get until i could better my situation. I did not allow myself to feel bad about leaving and i went to chucrh to help ease the pain. my husband would always tell me how no one was going to want a woman with four children and that i would be all alone and other things that he thought would lower my self esteem, yet i am now doing much better WITHOUT HIM and he's the one that is miserable. Believe in who you are. god has called us all for a special purpose in life and you should not allow someone else to let you miss out on being you! I hope that you believe in yourself because your children do! ctr Contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for assistance or visit the website and click on "Get Help". http://www.ndvh.org Please keep in mind that telephone and Internet use can be monitored. Hi. Call a womens shelter. They are very good at these places. You will feel your power come back. They will tell you about housing and other available resources. Good luck.

Immediately. Reach out to a close friend or relative for help, and leave as soon as you can.

If you can leave him - do it now.

Tell your friends you need them to come with you to collect your stuff from your place and just leave. Then call the police and put a restraining order against him.

Call the police or divorce him If there is a threat of physical violence, you may also be able to obtain a protective or restraining order, requiring him to leave your home and stay away from you.

Physically abusive? Call the cops. It is no more acceptable for a woman to beat a man then it is the other way around. Or leave her. Dont put up with that. Verbally/Mentally abusive? Let her know how she makes you feel...ask her why she treats you like that. If she doesnt stop....again....leave her.

Discuss it with your husband to decide if brother should be asked to leave; or if you are somewhere other than your home, if you and your husband should leave. No one has the right to interfere with your relationship with your husband (other than an abusive situation).

---- Call the police, if the abuse continues, then leave him and never go back. ----

If you can prove that he's been mentally abusive (statements and letters from friends or family would help) then it would be up to a judge to decide whether the children should be subjected to a mentally abusive father. By the way, there are some who believe that allowing children to witness the physical or mental abuse between parents is actually a form of child abuse.

File for separation, and change the locks; if he makes trouble, call the police.

The person doing the abusing is always responsible for that abuse. Abusive people always place the responsibility on someone else, and they always will if they can get away with it. If a situation becomes physical, it's always time to leave.

You have to want to get out of the abusive situation.

Well, if you can't wait the 6 months and you leave and your parents freak, your best bet would be to go to court and get emancipated. If your parents aren't going to care, just leave. You don't need that.

Get her to a therapist asap. And perhaps have the therapist speak to you? A leave of absence so she can deal with this?You can't really fire her - but you can give her support to get out of the marriage asap.

People tend to say things in anger. Since your husband is abusive you should consider going to a Woman's Abuse House to find help and learn tools to cope. No one has the right to abuse the other. Your relationship is toxic and you are in control of your life and not your husband. To tell him you are going to kill him is a serious accusation and when you get to this point it's time for you to leave this abusive relationship.

People can't leave them because the person who is abusive to you will not let you go anywhere.

No kidding, my mom has an abusive husband. She offered him to leave but he just won't, apparently, she'll have to live with him for much longer. Doesn't he think 16 years of abuse is enough? If he won't leave, pack your own bags and leave with dignity.

If you leave him, then it doesn't matter what he does. It wouldn't be called cheating if you left him. If he is abusive, then you should leave him.

WARNING! THERE ARE MISS SPELLINGS IN HERE!!! You just sneek in the night and go to the police station and report what he has done to you, and show them the bruises. You have your child give a testomony to the police about what the father has done, and you give a testomony too. You then fight for his perintal rights to be taken away too. And when you go to remarry then look for these signs of an abusive man: > He likes to control you. > He doesn't trust you. >

Sadly no they do not get to leave. Ifully support your husband or whoever you know that is in the army and i hope they get back soon and safly.

What a strange question! If the abused is afraid to leave the home for financial reasons, he or she should leave anyway. An abusive husband or father will still be required to support his wife or children, even if they do not live in his home. Basically, finances are not an issue in this case. If someone is being abused, that is the issue to get help for.
