Hi ladies. I have a 2 month old son & currently am a stay at home mom. My fiance brings in all the money. I have nothing. It has gotten to the point that I am completely financially Dependant on him. Our relationship has been rocky for about a year now, but being pregnant with his baby I had hope that things would get better and he would become more mature after our son was born. I know I should've gotten out while I still had a job. The car that I have is in his name. All we do is argue & fight because he acts like an immature child & treats me like I'm his maid. No exaggeration I literally have to clean up after him for EVERYTHING. I get no appreciation or respect. He smokes so much weed I swear its fried his braincells. He has been abusive, not punching me but he has came at me like he wants to, choked me a few times, bent my fingers back, & grabbed my arm and yanked hard. As I'm typing this I can see I'm an idiot for not leaving him right away but that's what brings me here. I don't know how to. I have no money, my family can't help, I have no car, I feel bad because my brother stays with me in our townhouse to get his life started after getting out of the army, and I don't have anywhere to go. I don't want to leave him because I want our son to have his daddy but honestly he doesn't even really show him the time of day. He gets home from work and expects to just go lay down until dinners done (which HAS to be a home cooked meal) eat, drink a beer/smoke & then go to bed. I live in Michigan. I need to know my options. Please help!
