Abusive dating story
Around the age of 19 the violence got so bad I feared for my safety like I never had before.
The pressure of feeling like I literally had his life in my hands was too much for me to handle at the age of 19.
I was 17 and had already endured his constant abuse for almost 2 years.
The acts of verbal abuse, and physical violence were endless.
It made sense to me that the least I could do was not wear shorts that attracted the attention that made him uncomfortable.
Gradually his behavior changed, he no longer spoke to me about his issues but instead became angry when I did things he did not approve of.
Jody: I know what it’s like to be disregarded and disrespected by the legal system. Jenna: We had our good times but once we were married, his desire to control everything became more obvious.
