I'm in an abusive relationship. Been together for 12 years and left a couple times, seems to get better but then he's back to the same old stuff. He's very jealous , controlling. But he says he loves me, can't live without me. I'm not in love anymore. I don't have money for my own place. the worst part is we have two kids together and he has two from a previous relationship. I have have been with him since I was 16. And I'm 28 now. I'm a little afraid to leave (afraid of what he's capable of and worried about the kids and also worried about starting over with someone else.). Does anyone have advice for me? Anything I can do to make a divorce go sort of smoothly?

First, I'm really sorry to hear about your situation, but there's aways hope. There's no such thing as a smooth divorce and the fact that he abuses you is going to make it that much harder. Be smart about the whole thing and first have irrefutable evidence that he is abusing you, otherwise it's his words against yours and you don't want to take that chance. Do you have a relative or friend you can move in with while you're getting back on your feet? However, I do recommend an abused women's shelter since they can give you better advice since they deal with these types of situations everyday. Good luck and stay safe!0
