my ex is an abusive man. he would abuse me and hit me and very controlling with me. he use to get mad at me for going out and getting the mail out of the box. he was so jealous that i was not even allowed to watch tv with out him asking who was there. he expected his dinner on the table and hot when he came home but i never knew what time he would be home so i would get thrown. i tried to keep peace with him but it was not easy. one day i had enough. i told him to go find somewhere else to live. i was not putting up with him anymore.I pack his things up and told him i was through and i later on filed for divorce. i was divorced for about 18 years now. i have been in a lot of abusive relationships but i am a stronger person because of them. i now know what i look for in a partner.
