I have been married 4 years. I am 26 he is 44. Things were ok at first... He is nothing like I thought he would be at this point. I know it's a bit that way with any marriage but...Despite his continued repentance and the truth he speaks - nothing in his life appears to be that of a believer. Night before last he got more physically violent than ever. Before it was a push or shove...grab. I have multiple marks from two nights ago. He blames me for it all. He has a painful past - and has a lot of healing to do - massive anxiety issues and we live w a disabled family member which adds a lot of strain - many privacy issues - but in the meantime he's hurting me and showing our 3 year old daughter a terrible example and he says he won't file for divorce. That I have to file, he would gladly sign. Feel like that's an attempt to say "he did not file" ... but in scripture it says a woman is not to depart from her husband. Moses did say a "man" could "give his wife certificate of divorce" and I told him amidst the "battle" the other night "if you want to follow Moses' laws then you have to "put me away" ... my point to him was he's not following God's laws at the moment but playing around with the laws that were given "because sin increased" and it has definitely increased under this roof.
He used to read the Word with me daily. This is a painful attack I know I'm not perfect but I never wanted or sought such a conflicted marriage. Pray for us thank you.
