The sexual urges I felt at puberty could not be controlled and I came to know how we can watch porn on YouTube.

Paranoid and abusive husband (11)

He has hit me in rage, given me a black eye, put my head through a glass pane (I had to get stitches), and hit me when I was pregnant. He says I pushed him to the limit each time because I wouldn’t let him walk away. I admit my fault is I stand in his way during an argument, because I’m sick to death of living my life like this and want answers to why he does this to me.
