Liar

My husband of 10 years lies all of the time about little things. This time, I found out, through his sister, that he never lived on the water on Lake Washington. Instead, he lived in the opposite part of town. What the heck, why would someone lie about something so easy?

He is hard hard hard to live with. NEVER can I bring up anything personal between us. He calls me every name in the book. Then, he turns around and calls me crazy.

I want to run, but financially, it is to my benefit to stay. If I stay, he will ruin me to nothing. But I am smarter than that. It is who is better at this game I am in. So sad. What do I do?
