Annie’s Mailbox for July 7
Dear Annie: I have been with “Jason” for eight years, married for four. Between us, we have raised five children. The problem is that Jason is controlling and verbally abusive. When we met, I was willing to overlook many things because he was so good to my kids. As a single mother, I needed the stability he could provide. But a couple of months ago, I reached my breaking point, and now I want out. I stay in the home only because I don’t want to leave my stepdaughter. Believe me, Jason is the type of guy who will make sure I have no contact with my stepdaughter simply out of spite. And it would devastate my two sons. They think Jason walks on water.
