I have been married15yrs and sometimes were not pretty my husband has on two occassions maybe more has held my wrist so tightly that I bruised and held me down by my neck with threatening to punch me, stupid me forgave him and just recently he grabbed hold of my wrist and hand and used in like the karate people who want to break blocks with their heads, my wrist has been sore but no visible marks. Anyway I have come to a decision that I have to leave him. On the day it happened I phoned the police believe it or not by accident explained to them what had happened, they were by my door within 10min I begged them not to come in but they said it was for my own safety and that I had reported an assult. Any husband taken away, police could not interview him because he was still under the influence of booze, but when he gave his statement he declined everthing. They asked if I wanted to press charges and truth be told I did not know what I wanted at the time so opted for no charges. He came home and walked in the house like nothing had happened no appoligy, no questions, no nothing. I have been sleeping on the seatee for 2 and 1/2 weeks and dam I to be free from him. I have three children and it is taking a toll as he is being normal? and I am sleeping on the sofa. so so so tired.
