Dangerously In Love With A Broken Man
I fell in love with a broken man.
He was kind enough to help me when I found myself in a rough spot. He too was in a rough spot. Together all we had was each other.
I later found out he was abusive in the sense that when he gets in a heated argument he results to threatening and getting physical. While I've never been punched I have been slapped and choked before.
Let’s be honest…after these things occurred he certainly did not go untouched. I defended myself.
I still love this man, after the 2nd time of making him leave. I see that the love is there but he simply does not know how to love, since he wasn’t raised in a loving household and he watched his dad abuse his mother.
How can we fix this? He has taken the first steps to get help by seeking a pastor who offered an anger management class. He also has agreed to seek counseling.
I want to marry him but I'd much rather stick with someone than be stuck. What is your advice for me?
