Starting at a young age I have been abused both mentally & physically… I am 18 now with a Boyfriend who keeps telling me to wait until I graduate which isn’t until next year. I feel that if I don’t leave now I am going to end up hurting them or myself. ** I plan to marry this guy… he’s going to propose when I graduate ( he is 20)** What should I do?
First you need to seek some type of counseling, I know sometimes it is hard to talk to someone, but sometimes it is what you need to feel better. Being abused mentally and physically isn’t something any child should have to render. You are 18, what are you doing still at home with an abusive family? Get out now, and get out fast, you do not have to stand for that kind of abuse any longer. It is going to be hard to be on your own, but if your boyfriend isn’t willing to move in together than you are going to have to make a hard decision and move out on your own. Find a job first before you move out and then find an apartment and move out. If your boyfriend who is 20 years old has a job and is going to marry you like you say when you graduate from high school, then I do not see any reason why he wouldn’t just want to move in with you now, to get you out of that house. Talk to your boyfriend first and if he isn’t willing to move in with you even after you guys have talked about getting married, I would re-evaluate your relationship, because I do not understand why he would allow or want you to stay in an abusive household. Get a job, find a place and move out. You deserve better.
