I have been in several abusive relationships throughout my 40 years.
I have been told I'm fat, what clothed I could and couldn't wear and who I could go places with. I couldn't even go with his mother alone. I have been slammed to the floor, choked, punching in the gut and sexually assaulted. I'd wake up to being penetrated in the rear. My ex husband told me he could do as he wished to me, as I was his wife.
I too have heard, "I love you and it will never happen again."
If you decide to share please do not use my name.
<3 Can we please all just take a moment for this woman and show her love <3
