Getting a divorce after being married for 34 years.

I have been with my husband since I was 13. I was raised in a family of alcoholics and a family member that sexually abused me. My husband saved me and we married when I was 16, a sophomore in H.S. We have had a lot of bad luck thru the years, hard times. We have hung on trying to get thru it. He is an alcoholic that drinks 7 days a week. He has become violent at times. I have tried to leave with no luck. We have 2 grown children. They love there father, don’t believe he is violent.They side with him, say it’s not that bad. I told him today I want a divorce. I am not with anyone, now what do I do. Where do I go from here.   FEELING ALONE IN MT.

    I am sorry to say that i am just now finding your letter and even more sadden to see no one reached out to help you.  You are absolutely doing the right thing. No one knows what really goes on inside a marriage but the two of you.  You deserve to be happy and live in peace, at the very least.

    How are you doing now?

    I g ot a divorce after 34 years also.  It is usual/normal for the children to not want to know the truth.  you have to do what is right for you.  Consider counseling, keep a journal;use all of the resources you have for support.  You should not have to live with violence.  you can also contact a shelter and domestic violence hotline.  The Verbally Abusive Relationship by Patricia Evans saved my life.
