Woman Married to Abusive Jackhole for 40 Years Asks Advice Lady if She Should Dump the Loser
Ah yes, Christians assume marriage makes people more godly, giving, loving, and mature. Except when it does not. Another example.
From “Ask Amy”
- DEAR AMY:
I have been married for more than 40 years to a man who has been physically and verbally abusive.
Recently I reconnected with a man I have known for 50 years. He is no longer married, and we have talked almost every day for months. It is as if we have never been apart.
We have talked about my leaving my husband and the two of us marrying. He has said he will take care of me. He says that what’s his will be mine and he makes me feel great.
My husband is constantly telling me I’m stupid and he is tired of me. I am torn as to what to do.
You should leave your abusive marriage, but not in order to jump into a relationship with someone else. You should leave the marriage so you can be free of it.
Do your best to set up an independent life — and not enter into yet another marriage where you are dependent and have so little control. Give yourself time to get to know this other man outside of the pressure exerted by your current situation.
