Divorce w a baby

don't know what advice to give but I am looking for advice myself. I have been married for 7 years and throughout my marriage I have experienced domestic abuse. I have stayed in the marriage because I did love my husband. He had employment issues throughout our marriage and I bring a lawyer be trade i support the both of us. For years my husband said he would get help for the violence. He claimed I provoked him and emotionally and verbally abused him. To some extent I might have. I slowly grew to hate him as the years passed. Then we decided to have a baby. At that time the violence had stopped and I believes having a child would bring us together. It did not. The violence continued and with having a baby I become more depressed. My husband then started video taping me when we would argue and threaten to use it against me to gain full custody of our 9 month old child. I finally saw a lawyer today. Still I hope he changes but I am scared sad and insecure

My mom didn't leave my abusive dad for thirty years, eventually, we all hated her for it. He was crazy and out of control. The only thing you can really control is yourself. Move on. He doesn't really want custody. He just wants you to keep engaging so he can release tension. Don't fight. Just get gone. All blessings to you.... good luck.
