I'm new to the site, but I just really needed to talk to someone. I've been with my wife a total of 9 years (6 dating, 3 married). We were high-school sweethearts, and have been together since I was 16. Unfortunately, over the years, she's slowly become more and more abusive. Emotionally and physically. We have a daughter who is now 1 and 5 months. My wife would demand I buy her things, and also use sex as a weapon. She's hit me many MANY times, and in May physically harmed my genitals. That's when I finally moved out. I have my own place, but struggle because she's constantly calling to beg me back, and she uses my daughter as a bargaining tool. She often sounds sincere, but as soon as things don't go her way, she starts the blame game again. While we were together, I worked 11 hour days, came home, washed all the clothes, made dinner and cleaned up the house. She was a stay-at-home wife, but contributed nothing. Now that I'm getting ready to file for divorce, she has really been trying to make me feel guilty (ie. I don't want to see my daughter every day, what kind of father abandons his kids). I love my daughter more than anything, and she uses that to get to me. I just need someone to talk to. The closest family I have is 2000 miles away, and have no friends, because while we were together I was not allowed to go out. Thanks!
