TOXIC MARRIAGE AND I WANT OUT!!!

by Anonymous

I have been married for 9 years and can honestly say I never knew someone could be so mean and selfish. My husband or should I say roommate is evil. He was raised in the church but you can’t tell. I have taken a self check to make sure that I have done all I am supposed to, and yes I have. I am not perfect but I have done my very best to be a good wife. This is his third marriage and I see why.


I won’t bore you with my story but I can’t take it anymore! He won’t go to counseling so that tells me he doesn’t want to try and mend this.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
