Thank you for your advice! I am so afraid after all these years to move on! On one of the last things he did to me was to pull a "fake" gun on me in the darkness of the guest bedroom of our house! I screamed and he started laughing! The very next day is when I noticed something wasn't right with my mind. I felt like that was the last "straw" and that is when I filed! Now he says that he feels bad for what he has done, but I don't believe him!
Thank you! So, in what you've read that I am moving in the right direction on getting the divorce? I know that it might sound crazy but I really need a concrete answer! I also feel that he might REALLY hurt me one day! Thank you again!
I am 51 years old and my spouse says that I am too old to move on. Again, I have been faithful, on top of all the verbal abuse, for 30 years, so I want to know if this is correct or is he just manipulating me again?
What I mean is that I am 51 years old, so my spouse is thinking that is too old to start over for me!
Thanks! Yes, I agree that it's part of the verbal abusive marriage that I am in. I am a half-marathon runner and from the abuse I am constantly dieting, so I guess it's part of the abuse as I said.
