I am a 43 year old woman with a 12 year old child. I have been married for 18 years. It has been a very difficult marriage. I attempted to leave my spouse twice and this is now the third time. He cried to me and made me feel sorry for him the first time. The second time he used God as the reason he had changed. This time my mind is made up. I don't believe that he can change. He was diagnosed with PTSD a little over a year ago stemming from him being abused physically, emotionally and sexually as a child. He did not tell me any of this until the last time I went back to him. He blamed his behavior over the years on the abuse. I am so lost. I have no job, no vehicle, very little money and he managed to max out all of my credit cards.
