Background Of My Abusive Marriage

Orginally posted here:


We met online.  We went from not knowing each other to marriage in less than 6 months.  His personality changed very quickly after we got married.  Of course it was all my fault.  He hated my cooking, my furniture, my decorating, and so on.  Never thought to mention this before we got married, while we were living together.  It was like I couldn't do anything right.  Plus, add a crazy ex-wife and a stepchild to the mix.  Oh, but the ex never did anything wrong.  I was just "too sensitive."  I wasn't as sane as I thought I was.  She wasn't as insane as I thought she was.  I was just "more sensitive than most."  I had "stronger reactions than most people."


To say that I wish I'd never met him would be an understatement.  I am, however, using the experience with him as inspiration for writing to warn others about men who lure women with charm, good looks, attention, affection, and sex only to abruptly remove the mask after the wedding.


If only I knew then what I know now...
