I have no family or friends that I can go to... I don't drive, and financially I rely on him for everything. Am I in an emotionally abusive marriage?
When our boy was a toddler his emotional outbursts only received quick glances. Now that my five-year-old has officially entered boyhood, his crying looks awkward on him; he gets full-on stares.

From a 25 point list, "These are the signs you're in an emotionally abusive relationship," he even agreed he was doing like 22 of them.
He kept that a secret for me for so long, how do I know he won't do it again!?? Please help! Am I the problem in our relationship?
Feelings are important. I don’t mean this in a trite, self-help sort of way. I mean, you have a right to your feelings. Full stop.
Many believe that validating a child’s feelings, always, leads to whiny, clingy, entitled children. That just isn’t the case.
Validating a child isn't telling them what's worth or not worth crying over. We don't get to judge our kids for having a different perspective.
My boyfriend has been feeling "Iffy" about our relationship thinking I'm out entertaining other guys, which I am not. My boyfriend doesn't trust me. Help!
We can teach our children resilience, empathy, and compassion by modeling those behaviors. And most importantly, we stop gaslighting them.
Am I misrepresenting? Am I misunderstanding? Am I misremembering?
Learning is the best thing for us, and the best place to look? The sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.
