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.
Being a mother, daughter, sister, and friend is as rewarding and complicated at midlife as it ever was in our 20s and 30s. Ask a question or share your story with other women who get it.
