My marriage is so destructive n I want to be happy this year. I wudve left but I don't have a job. I'm tied to this lease. This man is a alcholic, I don't trust him, we don't agree on anything and he keeps telling me he had it better before me but won't leave. He's turned into the da...n stepfather.
Why not file for a vpo and then have him pay for the lease and get on section 8 or something until you find a job, this doesn't sound like a good place to be with your children and you. You will be happy if you leave him it sounds like. Call an attorney and ask them their advice on what to do and then see what they suggest.
go to a women's center and see what kind of help you can get...there IS help out there for women in a situation like yours....or call, 1-800-799-SAFE to find local resources to help you. Good luck. Alcoholism is NOTHING you want to live with...Btdt
I would check the laws in your state-MA is working on a law that would allow a person to legally break a lease without being penalized financially when they are in danger. Please call your local social services office and find out what your options/rights are to get out. You are not alone and there are people out there who want to help you. I will be praying for you that you can get to a safe place quickly, the longer you stay the more your children will learn that this is acceptable behavior, and continue the cycle of abuse. Best of luck in this, wish I could do more.
I am working on some things. He said we should go to counseling, so he does agree to that. I am looking for a job and reached out to a couple program. I'm going to get all the support I can until my lease is up and if its still not working. I'm moving out. Thanks for all the advice.
