How can I stop feeling bad and realize I am making the right decision to divorce a verbally-physically abusive man?
I've seen an attorney. police will serve papers and he will be forced to leave. I've tried for years to repair arguments and/or ask for him to go to anger management. I've read books on DV and verbal abuse and all the signs and red flags are there. so why do I feel bad? I'm watching him interact with kids and know this will never be the picture again. I guess that's what makes me feel sad, that I will be taking this away from him. but then logically I can say I've done everything possible to work things out and he continues to get worse verbally and threatens to take the children when I bring up an amicable divorce (ya right). I'm not taking the children away, he is. but that's a blame game. can I rightfully say this is his doing? I am the kind of person who wants everyone to be happy, and everything to work out so I'm struggling here and looking for some solid advice.
