My current situation is that I remain in the family home until my son finishes his A levels.
I have suffered emotional abuse for years but need to keep the world steady for my son.
In June that will be over and I can leave.
For obvious reasons, divorce has not yet been mentioned.
The crisis point came about a month ago when she hit me. I really don't have to put up with it any longer.
Thank you. Peter
At this point I have no idea.
She knows hitting me was a big mistake. She has stopped giving me a hard time when I have work meetings in the evening.
This is making me quite angry because everything I have done for years has been accompanied by trying to make me feel guilty and effectively has ruined it.
My boys are soon 18 and 21. Every game of golf (which were rare) was accompanied by a guilt trip and effectively spoiled. Those times could have been special.
In short, I'll have lots of happy times to come with the boys but I'm not wasting any more of my life (I'm 54) with someone who told me that she doesn't like me to enjoy myself.
Thank you so much Clare.
