Most Helpful Guy
I would have but never did. I spent more than 30 years with an abusive wife and stayed to protect my children. For the longest time, I would have left if I could have gotten emotional support from someone else. Most of the time, I couldn't have faced being all alone.
She eventually forced the issue because she did such a good job putting herself between me and my kids, I could never get them calm with her around.
Moved out first of the year. It took 6 months but I finally feel good about everything.
