Hello, I'm new in this forum. I've been married for almost two years. I've been dealing with emotional and verbal abuse for the past year. I've always been a very strong person, so I've been able to tolerate the verbal abuse ok, and actually have helped my husband come to terms regarding his problem. He was drastically improving, then just a couple days ago, we were sitting in the car arguing about something, and he went balistic and starting punching me in my thigh and arm. He's never hit me before. Immediately afterward, he said he couldn't beleive what he just did. He's since tried to get help and immediatley went to a cousellor the day he did it. He promised me he'd never to it again and seemed genuinely repentant. I'm not sure if I should leave him or not. I love him so much, so I'm not sure what will hurt more. Staying, or leaving. Do you think he'll hit me again? I plan on going to a counselor, but I'd like some advice from people who have actually been in this situation, and know the pain of loving someone so much, and the pain of leaving. Thank you so much for your time. I appreciate and respect all of you and value your opinions.
