Have decided to leave an abusive husband. Is it wrong to wait until after the holidays are over to tell him and leave? I have two sons (11-13). I don't want to ruin everyones holiday.

Hello.

Logic would say 'leave now'. But unless there is any major risk to your and your sons' health, you can safely let the holidays be over. Consensus would go with the option of telling him after the holidays.

The decision won't be wrong if it is for the ultimate benefit for your sons and your own safety and happiness.

Regards
