I’ve come to another crossroad in my marriage. I have 4 children and have been married for 12 years now. This pass week we had a argument and my wife started to hit me and throw things at me. My 3 yr old was home at the time and fortunately did not get hit by anything but was extremely upset. My wife tried to take my daughter out of the house but I was able to get to her first. I did call 911 and the police came and they did take my wife away to jail. They did ask me if I wanted to press charges but to tell you the truth, I didn’t know what to do and said no. They said they were still taking her away and the prosecutor would decide. She was released the next day and when I tried to find out what exactly happened while in custody she wouldn’t speak besides saying “ nothing “.
I also asked her what she sees for our marriage future, again no response. At that point I told her we were done. Now of course she wants to go to counseling and try to fix our marriage and get a divorce.
We have been to counseling before about 7 yrs ago when when this exact same stuff happened before. Except that time she was not only threatening my life but the kids. She was taken to a mental health facility where they said she was suffering from postpartum disorder.
Over the years she has hit me before but not as much as this time. I never hit her back because I know i could really hurt her and I would be the one taken away.
Just wondering for anyones input, thank you.
