What do I do?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys this is my first post on here but I kinda need some advice, Sorry if this is in the wrong Forum...

To start off, I'm 16, been married 3 months and on top of that i'm 7 months pregnant. My marriage is pretty much falling apart, my husband is becoming very abusive, verbal and some physical. He has only actually hit me once or twice, but he grabs me and holds me down and things like that. I don't know what to do. Like I said, i'm only 16 my family pretty much hasnt had too much to do with me since I've gotten married , So moving back home is out of the picture. So i'm stuck.. I love him but I don't want to be in an abusive relationship, and I definitely don't want my child growing up in a home like that. Cause I come from a very broken home and I want something better for my child.

So could somebody please help me out and give me some advice or something!

Well sweetie, all I can tell you is LEAVE!!!!! I have been there and it only gets worse. The stress you are enduring WILL harm your baby in the long run. I am speaking to you from experience. You need to go to a battered womans shelter and they will help you.... do not feel that you have no where to go. You must leave for the sake of yourself and your child. I am a single mom and life improves and it goes on.

Hon, your family might not have had much to do with you since your marriage for various reasons - but I strongly suspect if they knew you were being physically abused, they'd be willing to give you some support. And make no mistake, you're being abused, and it will escalate, not get better. Even parents who are trying to let their kids learn from their own mistakes have points they're not going to carry that past - talk to them, talk to a counselor, find a support group in your area - but you need to work on getting out, and fast. Don't put it off - do you really want your child to be born into this situation? There's nothing shameful about turning to your family, friends, and whatever other help you can find for this - even if you have to hear a couple of "I told you so's" that hurt your feelings and pride - it's far better that than risk the life of you and your child.
