He told me not to work to finish school but he made me so insecure with other women comments and porn addiction that i was failing out cause id run home to catch him online i was so hurt all the time we began getting a little better and we moved home withmy mom and got married even the day before the wedding he said if i dont act right he wont marry me .I felt likei was always on eggshells but i the sick thing was i loved the good times but hated the bad. after we got married he began gambling binges and cause finacial upset and lies to get money. if id try to stop him hed put me down call me names and even lie to me to get more money then be sorry days after. We took a seperation the past 6 months and i was feeling good me and my daughter alone and then he came back and was soooo sorry for ever treating me so bad and wanted to give me the world have a family and love me right well i decided to tell him that i had gone to other men at times in our relationship when i felt so low and down they made me feel better i know it was wrong but at the time i felt like i deserved some love .
