I've been married to the same verbally and emotionally abusive man for 25 years, and it's hard to imagine walking away. Our kids are grown and gone; we live alone. I would be able to support myself, but not at this address! It costs too much to live here. He threatens to withdraw his financial support so that we will lose our home. He drinks too much. He destroys things in our home when he goes on a rampage. He calls me horrible names. I stopped pursuing a college degree and no longer go to church. He has isolated me from everyone and everything.
