I’ve stayed around in my marriage despite a lot of offenses committed against me by my husband so I am not qualified to answer this probably. I think though that anyone in this situation should put their life first. That’s been the mistake I’ve made and many women have made who’ve stayed. We didn’t put our life first.
Speaking from my own experience I know I’ve stayed in my marriage mostly out of fear. There wasn’t any one specific fear. It was a combination of many fears that crippled me mentally. I also know I stayed because I never valued myself enough. I never valued my life enough.
I am no longer at that place where I need to claim I’ve stayed for love. I know I have not stayed for love. I stayed for lack of love for myself. I did not love myself enough to leave for the sake of protecting myself from the possible harm my husband’s behavior could inflict.
If your husband is engaging in risky behavior that can cost you your life you need to find the courage to leave before it’s too late.
