My ex abused me for years – I worry he'll do the same to his new girlfriend
DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER my partner cheated on me, I finally split up with him, yet I put up with years of abuse from him before that.
We were together for almost a decade and have a five-year-old daughter. I’m 35 and he’s 36.
He physically, emotionally and mentally abused me.
I had to get a non-molestation order, which he breached a few times.
He’s now with the girl he cheated on me with and they are expecting a baby.
I wonder if he’ll abuse his new partner? Or was it just me?
If it was just me, what did I do?

DEIDRE SAYS: You did not do anything wrong and sadly he may well abuse his new partner, too, unless he gets help to change.
It can be very difficult to leave an abusive relationship, at least partly because the abuse itself damages your self-esteem and makes you question your judgement.
