My husband has an OCD I really don't think I can stand to be in the same house as him anymore but how do I end the relationship without hurting our 8 year old?

Do you think his OCD is hurting her? While he'd have my sympathy, I'd be worried that she would be influenced by that.

You need to stay mentally healthy, OP - this is vital given his illness. That's how you'd justify it.

we've been together since I was 15, I'm now 46, were married, I don't know how to end it.

She's upset about the arguments, this week has been particularly bad. I just don't know what to do anymore

Hes spent the whole day washing today, still doing it. he getsannoyed with himself and shouts, it's horrendous. I feel sorry for him but I can't help him, he's dragging us all down.
