I met my husband on a blind date and eventually we got married. Now by no means am I perfect and I don't make myself out to be perfect. We have been married for six years and we have two children together, a son who is 5 and a daughter who is 1 and I have a son, my oldest who is 13 from a previous relationship. Now I have bent over backwards for this man and he has just been a jerk the whole time that we have been married. He talks to me like I am a child and he tells me what I can and can't wear. He says that my breasts are always out and he is tired of talking to me about my clothes. He says that I don't know how to talk to him. He says that I should not be raising my voice at him and that I need to respect him. He yells at me all the time. My wedding ring was taken by a maintenance worker that came into our apartment to do some work and that was over 4 years ago and he has not replaced it, said that he did not lose it so why should he replace it but he gets pissed off when I don't wear anything on my finger. He says that I only do that when I get angry with him. We have been separated I am sure five or six times in the course of our marriage. The second time before the last he took me to court so he could get custody of our son. He stood there and told the judge that he did not think that his son was safe with me and that I was not taking my medication, which I was not on, and did not feel that my oldest was safe either. The sheriff came to my house and took my son from me and the last time it lasted for about six months. In those six months I was not getting any help from him financially and I had to give my only means of transportation back to the finance company because I could not afford the note on my own. I was really trying to make this work but I am not so sure that I want to be in this marriage anymore but I stay for the kids. My husband always would say that I would never meet anyone or be with anyone because I have kids, what do you think I should do? I wanted to make my marriage work but I am not sure if this is just one of those marriages that will never work.


What should I do?
