    I have been married for 8 years and now have 2 children. My husband has been angry, overly reactive, controlling and has made a point to speak about my insecurities to our neighbors, friends and families. He is critical in the way I handle the kids and in the same breath says that I'm a great mother. He has left our 4 year old home alone to go get our 6 year old off the bus and when I questioned him about this and told him to go back and get our son he said, "I was micro managing him." He drinks 2 larger rocks size glasses of vodka 4-5 times a week and is often not present (at others houses, on the computer, doing office work at home.) He is overly reactive if our child spills milk and once while camping he yelled at me (loudly so that others looked.) saying that he couldn't believe I had let our son go to the bathroom by a bush. (we had been driving for hours.) I feel like I've tolerated too much for for too long and am emotionally over it. I do not argue, I am overly sensitive to anger because of my family which he always complains about also. But I have guilt because of my children. Should I stay or should I go?
