Hi! I have been married for 21 years, I have raised 10 children during that time. My husband is truck driver and has been for most of our marriage. He resents me because I have been here with the kids all these years while he has been out there.Now please keep in mind when he took this job I was against it, I begged I threatened to leave him etc but because he is the man of the house my feelings didn't matter, and he is a control freak and I'm not talking about just little things I mean with everything. He is in total control of the finances if I need money I have to ask him and if he doesn't think it is needed the answer is no. Lately he has been so hateful towards me and is constantly throwing it in my face that I don't work outside the house. He threw it in my face that he has taken care of me all these years which is true he has been the financial provider but I have had to do everything else alone. He is being more stingy with money then ever before telling me I am just using him etc. I am trapped, I have been a stay at home mom for well over 21 years I possess no kind of work force skills and we live 8 hours away from any of my family. I am at a breaking point and I feel emotionally broken. I don't know what to do.
