      The last few days have been extremely tough and exhausting!! But we did it. I told my fiancé I didn’t want to be with him anymore! He tried to use so many things to keep me saying he would re home the dog, I couldn’t borrow the car to take the kids to school. He made me say to the kids that it was my decision and I was the reason was breaking up although they know better than that!! We packed up our belongings and my Mum and friend came and picked us up! It was so draining but I feel so much better being at my Mums! No more walking on eggshells!! No more living in survival mode! Waiting to see if we can get a house through the council but feeling hopeful and positive!! Thanks for all your support

      Oh wow that’s such wonderful news. Lean on those close to you that you trust. It’s going to be a rollercoaster of emotions but you have done the right thing. Right to the end he was controlling and such a nasty person. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

      Talk to your local women’s aid. They will be able to assist and guide you regarding housing and other needs.

      Thanks so much everyone!! Even though he has (detail removed by Moderator) failed marriages before me his Parents were a bit off with me! They said there are two sides to every story! (detail removed by Moderator) They would let me have the kids passports or birth certificates. I’m hoping we find a home soon! Do you think women’s aid could help to speed things up?
      I don’t have a car but Mum is going to help out. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and my shadow has gone!

      Yes definitely contact women’s aid and victim support. Gather as big a support network now that you can because he’s going to cause as much trouble as he can. Sadly I found that blood is thicker than water so be very careful around his relatives because they may well assist and enable him with authorities. Get legal advice too about you being the resident parent otherwise he can keep them and not return them.

      You did a very amazing and strong thing.
      You broke the cycle of abuse and now you and your children can be free of it and their future generations

      Thanks so much! It’s certainly not easy!! I’ve nearly got a car for my Daughter’s and I and when we do get it I’m going to do little things that my ex wouldn’t let me do!!
      The biggest thing I’m worried about is the house! My Mum is wonderful but I don’t want to out stay our welcome and want to get the kids settled!! I just hope I can manage all the finances! We had such a wonderful home but the love had gone for me and we drove a nice car but money is not everything!! I feel our happiness is!!
      He wants to speak on the phone about maintenance and having the kids but because it’s early days I don’t want to talk on the phone! Apparently he’s been left with nothing which makes me laugh as he has a home, a (removed by moderator) and a car to drive around in.
