39. Rec'd here and there both
Your experience with your ex sounds an awful lot like an experience I had with an ex of mine. It's sad to say that hetero marriages don't have a lock on spousal abuse. I remember that same shining moment, too, when I realized, like you, when someone thought they were giving me the last good reason to stay in that relationship, it hit me like a lead balloon it was the best reason to go. Right then.

It took the protection of the sheriff's office (who, thank Spirit, were understanding) to get him out of my life and that time I didn't end up in the emergency room getting stitched up again. But I got free.

Now I'm blessed to have the most wonderful, loving, gentle, loyal, passionate, sexy, smart, and perfect (for me) man in my life. In February, we will have 13 years together. One of these days, I'll marry 'im, too :)

Thanks for such a wonderful essay. When I read letters like yours, I keep hope.
