Dear Cuties, I have just told my husband I have filed for divorce. Long story. He has a very bad temper. Please pray for me today and for the foreseeable future. Thank you so much. Anne

I just wanted to let everyone know that so far all is okay. Surprisingly so. We have agreed to a settlement and I sent it off to my lawyer. Naturally, he is now questioning it, but I'm praying about that also. For all those who said keep records, I do have pictures and recordings if it turns out I need them. With him, you never know. God bless you all for your sweet concern and prayers. They are appreciated more than you will ever know. Thank you, Anne

Anne, I was in your same position at one time. For me it was the right decision, although it was very difficult. Actually, I never had any bad days after that. May God fill you with the strength and the courage you will need. I know He will. Love and hug, Jan

I am sorry to hear that you have been mistreated. No one should live in fear! Ignore the promises that he will change. Be strong! You have taken the first step to a life of peace and happiness. It is a long road -- but you will get there with help. Rely on friends and family -- if they support you in your decision.
Be safe!
As Jerri said, document everything in a journal daily. Do not rely on your memory. Call for help if you need it.
I will be praying for you! Please keep us updated if you can.

I can definitely sympathize. I was in a similar situation, but the only way I could guarantee my sons and my safety was to leave when my then-husband was away. Your life can become better; I have proof, since I am now with my second husband for almost twice the length of time with the first. Be strong and believe.

Dear Anne: I am sorry to hear this and pray for your safety. A word of advice to to document everything you can with dates, times etc. If things get ugly, you will have a back up of what has transpired. I learnt the hard way and advise anyone going through this horrible experience. Its better to have things written down, then if you need the information you have it.
Please take care of yourself and keep us posted. Hugs Jerri

This always breaks my heart. I have had two divorces and they were my fault just as much as the husbands. - both were good men but things went wrong. I wish you the strength to leave your marriage - a bad temper is a frightening thing. Stay strong and remember that we are here for you. Hugs Sarah (South Africa)

Take care of yourself, I know how hard it was for me to learn that no matter what you can't change anyone else. I am still with my husband after 30 years. I am not happy but feel like I don't have any choices as I am on disability and only get 500. a month. I admire your courage. I wish you the best and pray for your future happiness. Sharon

Hang in there, Anne! Things will get better, when you are in control of your life, and not an abuser. Divorce is tough and scary, but much better than to stay in a bad situation. I know. There will be a time after divorce, that you will feel like a heavy weight has been lifted from your shoulders. May the Lord bless you and guide you.
Hugs, Angel

It is hard to do no matter what. I didn't have a husband with a bad temper, but there was other things that made it impossible to stay together. I gave it a lot of thought and prayer for a long time before I made that big leap. Now I am happily remarried and we have 5 kids between the two of us. We will have 15 grandchildren and 2 grandchildren by the end of the summer. That first step is hard, but you can do it - just keep yourself positive and safe.
