Question: Should I Stay or Go?
I’ve been married for almost ten years and have a son who’s almost five. My husband is extremely controlling and I’ve been unhappy in our marriage for a long time. Last year, I tried to finally leave him, but he cut off all access to our money and I was broke (I don’t work). It was hard to go back to him but I decided to do it, since I don’t want to change my lifestyle and I think it’s probably best for our child to live with both parents. I still often worry that I’ve made the wrong choice, but I don’t know what to do anymore. Any advice?
