Nearly happened to me a couple of times. It's frightening. It also angers me, when I think about what I sacrificed and was prepared to sacrifice for him. It was never enough. He treated me like a tube of toothpaste, squeezing every last bit he could. Screwing up my career and plans to travel wasn't enough. If I had gotten barefoot and pregnant, it still wouldn't have been enough. I was just a container he wanted to dump the contents of for a nice bottle on his shelf.
