Well you should tell someone about it and then tell the police too. They could help you and maybe protect you from him Contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline toll free at 1-800-799-7233, or the website for guidance and assistance. If you believe you are in immediate danger call 911 for emergency assistance. Please be advised internet and phone usage can be easily monitored.

AnswerNo matter what age children are it is hard for them when their parents divorce. Even if they are 50 years old. But if you and your husband are already thinking of getting a divorce then things must be pretty tough right now. Just be sure that when you do decide to get a divorce just let them know that it is not their fault.AnswerAny age is appropriate, as long as you get out of there as soon as you possibly can.A bit more:If your husband is emotionally abusive to the kids or to you, you need to get out now. To remain in a marriage and subject the children to any form of abuse will cause far, far more damage to them from coming from a broken home. Actually, in this particular situation, I would consider it a "broken home" - I would consider it mending their home life.Growing up with an abusive parent (verbally, emotionally, physically,etc.) can cause children many problems, both while young and after they are grown. It can result in them having very poor self-esteem, deep seated anger and resentment, etc., and it can also result in them possibly being emotionally abusive to their own children one day.So please, for yourself and your children, leave your husband now. The longer you stay, the more damage he can cause to all of you.

Divorce affects society by producing children who could suffer from maladjustment due to the break up of their family. On the other hand, the advantage of divorce in society is that abused spouses no longer have to stay in abusive relationships.

Children are affected by divorce emotionally. The process of divorce may affect a child's performance in school and his ability to concentrate in studying. Most children who face parental divorce move to join gangs and drugs to fill that gap left by their parents

The basic forms that need to be filed in a divorce are the names, date of birth, date of marriage, names of children from this marriage. One also has to state reasons for the divorce, like for example cruel and abusive treatment, or adultery.

You may need to taalk this over with your family as a support group. This fella obviously does not have your best interests in mind and if you continue to try and stay with him, it is going to become ever more abusive even possibly, physically abusive. You need to face the issue head on. If he cheated for that long and says he wants a divorce....then...he wants a divorce.
