Hi, guys —
Glory to Jesus Christ!
My name is Barbara and I'm 30 years old. I have been married seven years and we have four kids. My husband visits with me in church and prays with the kids at home. In general, he is a very good person but when we have problems with our finances and other issues, he starts to get very angry and fights with me a lot.
Around four years ago he hit me, two years ago he hit me again, and now couple days ago, he was so angry and hit me in front of our kids. My mom and sister came to protect me and he hit them too. He always says very bad things about my relatives, but during that same time, my relatives have helped me take care of my kids and helped him a lot in different situations.
Now, I don't know what to do.
My mom has to come back to the Ukraine. She came for the summer to help with the kids, because I was so exhausted. I am afraid to stay with my husband, because I can't trust him any more but at the same time, I forgave him already and don't want to do anything to offend God.
Help me to find a good destination. I want to save my marriage and have always dreamed of having a good Catholic family but I don't know how to survive in these conditions.
