THere is help for him in the military, as there is help for you also. Alchol needs to be a NO-NO in your house for the next year. All to often it lifts the thin veneer of civilation and exposes the ugly within. He is feeling all kinds of rage, and now that he has done it once, he will do it again and it will be worse. I have dealt with this on both sides, both as the abuser and the abused. I can tell you that without help this will fester and only get worse.
ANd you have done nothing to deserve this. I to went thru an episode two years ago where my wife stabbed me in the neck because i had an affair. I felt that i deserved what i got. Now two years later i realize that i didnt deserve to stabbed over that. ANd you also, problems that you may have, do not need to worry about the next time he drinks that he might hit you again. Its an unfair situation to put us in, when people hurt us, we are allways on pins and needles afterward. He is allowed to get made, he is allowed to not talk to you, sleep in another bedroom for a week or two, but he isnt allowed to verbally hurt you or physically hurt you.

10. You family really might want to consider family and individual therapy For All Members! This might be reguarded as a mutually abusive situation (as you have admitted pulling a knife on him), and with this most recent episode seems to be escalating (and frankly you are pregnant!).

Is he crying over what he did to you, or the fact that it could end his career?
