Relationship Violence Story From Cateyes

by Cateyes
(New Jersey, USA)

Mr Right... 
It all started in 3/10 I met this man in the emergency room we both were sick that day. we exchanged numbers and then we were talking texting day and night. I was a single mother who has been threw a lot with past relationships. I was so professional blow my mind with his conversations.. we got married in 5 months everything was great. then he beat my ass because I talked back to him. he became abusive in the bedroom he wanted to have Anal sex all the time he sent me to the ER he has messed up my anal and vaginal so bad that the Dr thought I had STD Herpes I wasn't at all it was so beat up I cried and said this isn't love it shouldn't hurt.

he was lazy didn't want to work. he finally got a job after I begged and complained at a Department Store that's when he became more abusive and distant from me he started to sleep on the sofa and get drunk day and night. and then become violent towards me. he would bring up my past I must've have not been a good woman because my babies daddies didn't marry me. he also said I was not a good mother that he would kill me and the only way he would leave my apartment is if I called POLICE so one night we are eating at the table he got so drunk and called me a lesbian and that I eat p***y mind you my 7 year old was in the next room heard everything that's when I decided it's enough I had it. It's my Apartment I pay all the bills in here I do everything he doesn't even have a car nothing he is talking to me like this f**k this I sent all the kids to play at the park I called the police had him removed out of my place

then he called me and said o you called the cops on me... you laugh now you think it's all fun and games well I said it's OVER BUDDY your games are over we are done. I haven't answered that phone the rest of the night.

I feel great I learned from this a lot I will focus on my kids and my self and read more and expand my mind to become a better woman. I feel free my house feels good at peace.. I am hurt I really loved him.

I also realized when all this happened the people who I thought were my friends were in fact not at all...after it's all said and done you only have GOD GOD and he is great!!!
