My abusive husband has given me a one-week ultimatum – do I leave him?

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE until next week to decide if I am going to stay with my abusive husband or leave him.

This is my second marriage. He’s a retired Army captain of 62 and I’m 48.

He can be nasty and belittles me. He checks everything all the time – my emails, even my car’s mileage – and tracks my phone.

I worked in a supermarket and he became obsessed with a male colleague, thinking I was cheating on him with this guy. It got too much, so I quit my job.

My son is 26 and got married two years ago but he hates my husband, who wasn’t invited to the wedding.

In return, my husband wouldn’t allow me to go either. It broke my heart.

My friends all know he is emotionally abusive, swears at me and shouts.

When I told him I was leaving, he snarled: “You have until the end of next week to decide but you won’t last a minute on your own.”

I’ve got no job. My son would help, though. Should I go?

DEIDRE SAYS: Well, it doesn’t sound as if you are getting anything out of this relationship.

It would be better if he left, given you have no job. Is that a possibility? If not, stay with your son until you can get another job.
