I was just wondering if you have been abused. If so, what did you do? Did you leave, did you stay? Were you injured???

After 8 years,a few black eyes, stitches in my head and a few places i lived trashed i finally got my brain straight and left. that was the best thing i could have ever done. i was stupid to stick around that long. my ex is still going in and out of jail. so i'm so glad i left.

I have never been abused, but if I was, I would leave immediately. I think that I deserve better. Everyone deserves better. It's just a sign that things are going to get worse, because if he does it once, he's going to do it again next week, then he is going to get into a habit of it. He might say he's never going to do it again after once, but if he breaks that promise, you have no reason to trust him even if he tells you the sky is blue.

My first husband was physically abusive...it took 6 months and him almost killing me to convince me to leave him. I made several trips to the hospital for split lips, black eyes, you name it. In the end, I decided my life was worth more than he was. It was over 20 years ago and I still have nightmares every now and then...I also can't watch domestic violence movies.

Yes i was abused and when he did it after 15 years of marriage i was shocked .He did it twice and he knows tha twhat he did is wrong On the whole my husband Is aloving personbut sometimes i do not know what gets into him. I was not badly hurt just a mark or two.I know it is not right because that is not the way things should be .I did not leave because I love my husband very much and i do not know what has gotten into him after 15 years. I think that he loves me too because he would do anyhting for me and our children He always sees that we have everything we need! All I know is that he has had a difficult upbringing!

I was in a relationship that started to get abusing. He threw darts at me and pushed me down. Needless to say after that night I was gone. We had a one year old son and there was no way that I was going to stay in that and have my son learn from him.

No, I never been abused. And if my husband abused me, I would leave and never look back. It's very very disturbing and making me really angry when husbands abused their wives. They are supposed to be the protector and maintainer for their wives. They are supposed to love and respect their wives. May all abuser be punished with what they deserve.
