I know what the Bible says and I believe it with all my heart! However, after 6 years of verbal, mental and emotional abuse, threats of divorce every 3-4 months, and a major lack of involvement in our marriage or with our daughter...I finally filed for divorce after receiving an email from him 1 month into his 8 month deployment telling me he was done with our marriage and was taking his ring off! My daughter used to lock her and I in a room to get away from her father and often said things like "don't talk to my mommy like that"!! I had to make a decision as a mother to not let our daughter grow up to think it was ok to be talked to like that and to let her be a kid instead of sitting in my lap trying to protect me all the time. I have to answer to God as her mother and as much as I do believe in God and his word, I have a hard time believing God would want me to live that way for the rest of my life. I didn't just "give up" either. I told my husband several years ago that I felt if we put our marriage in God's hands and if he would attend church with my daughter and I, that with a lot of work on both our parts, our marriage could be
saved. He came to church for a while and played the part while he was there, but once we got home...he was back to his old self. He attended church for 3 years and was even saved. Then one day, he just stopped going. So I guess my question is...according to the Bible and apparently a lot of posts on this site, do you believe I am going to hell?
