seems to be the common denominator of every domestic abuse victim I've ever heard. I've read lots of stories and those are the magic words that say it will only escalate from here.
The longer you are together, the more possessive he will become. Soon he'll expect you to abandon your friends and dedicate yourself only to him.
The more possessive he becomes, the less it will take to set off his anger and the more he will hurt you. The more you accept that it, the more you will wonder if it really is your fault. IT"S NOT!
There are two kinds of men in this world: those who are capable of hurting women... and those who are not. They NEVER change teams.
You've married an abuser, sorry, get the hell out of there while you still can! It will get nothing but worse from there. According to dozens of abuse victims on this thread; if they say the bruise is nothing and that I brought it onto myself...
you are in danger. Believe it. Be the 1 in 25 who gets out before you really get hurt... or you will.
Damn it, I'm going to get Brooke.
