It has been rough a couple days,my husband I kicked out Thursday came clean to cheating on me and it was through our 2 year marriage he did to me.Plus he was very abusive to me and I have PTSD now which is under control with medication.He hit and slapped me including being verbally abusive.I am lucky to have my mother and sister Julia for support including friends now,this has helped a lot.Said I deserved better and don't need him anymore.I have decided to file for divorce and see my lawyer on Monday.I have everything inventoried I own and and prepared.No kids with him and a seperate bank account.I have a couple kids,they are from previous relationships.
I did inventory everything I owned 3 years ago which is on paper.The house is in my name,have the papers for the proof of ownership.I even kept the police reports when the cops came out which he was arrested for Domestic violence which he was convicted of 7 times.
I was taught to be prepared and don't throw anything important out.I did the inventory check 3 years ago just in case something like this happens and it was for insurance reasons too.I know how to defend myself very well if he wants to do any harm.My father whom passed away 3 monthes ago taught me how to defend myself with a hand gun 3 years ago If I have to use deadly force and I took a self defense class.
I'm moving this to Personal Growth where it is better hosted.
