Therese and I met in church , I called her sweet Therese I fell in love with her , she was so very
nice and treated me very well , and we married ,
We were married for at least a day when she changed and there was no part of me that she
liked except that I could repair TV’s which she brought some TV’s home for me to fix for her
friends , she had so many friends.
I was driving a bus during the day and weekends , and working in a tv shop part time and then
fixing Terries friends TV’s at night. I worked long hours and never made enough money to please
The man who owned the Tv shop went through a divorce and asked me if I would take it over , I
was willing to drive buses morning and afternoon and repair TV’s in the late morning and at night.
I asked Therese if she would answer phones while I was driving and she told me that she was a
wife, not a secretary and if I wanted a secretary I would have to hire one. She had told me to get a
job at the ford plant making seats , very specific yet I could not do repetition work day after day , I
told her that I could not do that and she said that I was smart of course I could do it but it was
because I was smart that I needed challenge .
since getting married I was abused for 3 hours every day , I would be fixing her friends TV’s and she would be
telling me everything that was wrong with me and at the end of these episodes I would say “ you have just told me
what is wrong with me , now what is right about me ?” she never answered that but over a year she systematically
rejected every aspect of who I am.
At the same time I trained Marianne Carducci on a run to Ann Arbor and East Lansing we talked much and I
related how frustrated I was fot the abuse from Therese, we became too close . After 6 months straight of
Terries daily abuse and me asking what is right about me I decided to leave and Marianne let me move in with her. it
must be said that I did not leave Terry for Marianne I left Terry because of her abuse.
Since I had minimum rent I was able to pay all of terries bills including trash pickup and money for food when we
did get divorced I was ordered to pay x amount but it was not enough for her to prosper. I kept paying 2 x the
amount ordered till her car broke and while fixing it My back went out and I could not work for over a month , I
asked if I could pay only what was needed and she told me that I had to pay what i owed , so I did . it was less than
what was needed for that month. It angered her so much that she took me to court for not paying child support. I
brought every check duplicate and the lady at child protection was amazed and asked what is she complaining
about, I told her the discussion, the end result was that the child support was raised to half of the extra that I
was giving and was told to not give her one dime more. keeping in mind that I was also paying support for my first
Marianne and I were very compatible , her first husband did not let her grow and she was proud that she was
driving a “greyhound “ style bus and I supported her 100%
