How to deal with an adult step-son ruining a marriage?

Begin creating plans and follow through. It may be challenging at first (both monetarily and emotionally), but you will triumph in the end. You can't go on living like this. You must take control of your life. Don't wait for someone to come to your aid—-DO IT YOURSELF. I apologize once more for what has happened to you. I am very sorry that these things have happened to you.

He's acting like he's not responsible for his actions - perhaps because he was abused as a child himself? It's important to remember that relationships are based on trust. If one partner violates that trust, then the other party has every right to feel violated too. Even if your husband didn't physically hurt you, if he used his position of power over you to make you feel bad about yourself or to abuse you mentally or emotionally, that is assault. You should file charges against him even if you don't want to divorce him. There are ways of dealing with an abuser without ending up in court, but you need to get help from someone who knows how to handle these situations.

The best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to get out now. Try not to think about all that money you're going to lose - just focus on getting a good job that pays well. Use some of that savings to start building your own house back up again. That way when your husband does return you'll still have a safe place to live.

How to cope with a difficult husband who treats you badly?

I have nowhere to go, no one to help me, and no money. So I'm stuck in this marriage, and it's starting to bother me. My spouse has broken my heart, which I had patched up for him, expecting he would be the one to mend it for me. I'm in a lot of pain and try not to show it. But there are times when I can't hide my feelings.

He has treated me poorly since we got married. Sometimes I think if I did something wrong, he would treat me better. But that never happens. He always has an excuse not to love me anymore. It's like he wants to prove that he doesn't need me or someone else will take care of him. I feel like I'm walking on eggshells around him because anything I say might upset him. I just want our marriage to work but I don't know how much longer I can take his mistreatment.


Dear Shelly, you are not alone. Many women face this problem at some point in their marriages. The key is knowing how to deal with it.

First, remember that husbands can't change the way they act or feel about you. They are only human after all. So although they may get angry with you or treat you badly sometimes, this does not mean that they truly hate you. They probably just felt like being unreasonable today.

Second, avoid taking your spouse's bad behavior personally.

What to do when your spouse has a hard time forgiving you?

If you've acknowledged your flaws to your spouse and he or she is still refusing to forgive you, there are several things you may do to assist. First and foremost, you may acknowledge that forgiveness is a journey. It ebbs and flows; it starts, pauses, and restarts; it improves and deteriorates. Rather than trying to make your spouse hurry up and get over it, help him or her understand that healing takes time.

You should also be willing to make changes in your behavior in order to earn your spouse's forgiveness. For example, if your husband or wife never wants to see you again, then you need to find another partner who will love you no matter what you do. Changing your behavior in this way will allow your spouse to feel like he or she can trust you again. Of course, this isn't always easy; sometimes we want our spouses to hate us so we don't have to deal with their anger. But until they learn to forgive, they aren't able to put their feelings aside enough to truly love you back.

Last, try to remember that forgiveness is not about you. It's about your spouse being free from guilt and shame because of his or her actions. If you truly want to be forgiven, you have to ask for it. Don't expect your spouse to know you well enough to guess that you need forgiveness!

The most important thing is that you be honest and open with your spouse.
