The police had come to end one of a string of arguments that had become physical. His mom stopped him from slamming my head into a brick wall. The police recommended that we go for a drive, leave the children with his Mom and work things out. I got in my car with him and it wouldn't start. He pulled my distributor wire out of his pocket and said "you weren't going anywhere." At that moment I knew I had to get away. I went home the next day and two weeks later he was served with a restraining order and divorce papers. Many many years later we are cordial, the children are grown. They say he is a different man, but I know the truth.
