My marriage is failing.
Since having my son my marriage has been on the rocks. My husband and I got married right before having my son. Ever since having my son I have felt like my husband hasn’t been there for me. It seems like he has put all the responsibility on raising our son on me. He act as if going to work is all he will ever have to do and to me that is not enough. He is extremely emotionally abusive and puts me down for every little thing I have done wrong as if his way is the only way. At one point in our marriage he began getting somewhat physically aggressive by holding me down, putting his hand over my mouth and poking me until I gave into whatever he wanted. That has stopped now for the most part, but it has caused me to loose a lot of respect and love for him. In turn I haven’t really felt like having sex and I also have a medical problem that has made it a little more difficult to have sex. He is not involved in our kids lives, I also have a stepdaughter who is 5. He has put all responsibility of raising the kids on me and involving them in activities. He says he brings home a paycheck and is tired, but I take care of two kids and work an early morning shift at a job that is very physical. I was also going to school. Anyways I don’t know what to do, every day he changes his mind about whether he wants to be married to me or not and it is really tearing me apart inside. I am a christian and I want to do the right thing, but I don’t think I am in love with him anymore. But I don’t want to tear my family apart. What do I do?
