My name is Comfort, a 36-year-old married woman with two children who mean the whole world to me and in fact, they are the reason I am still in this marriage because my husband beats me every day but I can’t leave him.
When we were dating and when we were newly married, my husband Uzor, was not a brute but shortly after, he started being abusive verbally and with time, he began to slap me and graduated to beating me severely.
After every attack, he would cry and beg me so much, promising never to raise his fingers on me again. He would blame the devil and alcohol for his actions.
I always forgave him because of the love I have for him and prayed he would change but the abuses continued and he graduated to beating me almost on a daily basis, even when I was pregnant.
I have lost two pregnancies and have had to be hospitalized on many occasions but still, I keep hanging on, hoping for a change.
But instead of changing, Uzor has become something else, pouncing on me at every opportunity, beating me with everything at his disposal including iron rods.
I fear he could kill me one day but my problem is that I can’t leave him because of my young kids and the fact that no one has ever had a divorce in my family and I don’t want to be the first.
How do I stop my husband from being this brutal to me?
Dear readers, after going through Comfort’s pathetic story on True Confession today, what do you think she should do?
