It took me 10 years to get out of my abusive marriage. It didn’t get better with the passing of time. I was in my late forties when we divorced. We have two children together. I wasted some of the best years of my life on that man. The only thing good that came out of our relationship was our children.
Bottom line here, Is that he will change when he wants to change. I definitely understand your fears about moving to another country and uprooting your life. You have no idea whether he is going to change. He needs to own his behavior instead of blaming other people.
