53. That day in August, 1977
I stood in a courtroom before a judge and I divorced my abusive husband. I had had enough. That was my "NO!" to a man who thought that if manipulation by guilt did not work, he had the right to put a fist to my face. That was also my "NO!" to my abusive parents before him. I swore that I would NEVER AGAIN put up with that goddamn bullshit from ANYONE! And I have not.
