Hello.I am new to this board,and I don't know if you would like my advice.Anyways I was married to a man like that for 5 years.We had a little boy together.Things didn't start that way though.But it got to the point where he would yell,and raise his voice over stupid things. I didn't want my son around that. So anyways we finally got a divorce,and we each get out son.I have him for a week,then he has him for a week. This is working for us. He too used to cry,and beg me almost not to leave him but finally I had to. We still talk as friends,and we get along better.I haven't heard him yell over something stupid in a long time,and he doesn't yell around our son when he has him as far as I know. I thought that staying together would do more damage to our son then being back and forth. He still has his mother,and father they are just away from eachother,and slightly happier.I am not saying I didn't still love him when I divorced,it was just for the best.
