I'm a young mother of 5 children. I am in what people call a "situation-ship" where I don't want to be with him and he really doesn't want to be with me. We argue every other day and have been in physical fights before. I'm just drained. The only reason I give a little life to the relationship is because of my kids and my fear, I guess, of being alone. But I continuously let him back in. I just want him to leave me alone. It's too many battles at once. What should I do?
This is a very complicated situation, especially with 5 children. You can either choose to work on getting support and counseling for yourself or you can ask him to join you for couples and family counseling. There will be a lot of healing that will need to take place individually so you will have the emotional strength and support to make the best decision for you and your children.
