I left an idiot boyfriend after short relationship and went straight on the rebound with a far far better partner. So, yes it really did work out. Good luck. Go! Go for GOLD!

It can work out, but have you examined the causes of why you were attracted to your DH in the first place and how the dynamics of your relationship work? I would recommend this book it has a chapter in it about what to look for in a new relationship if you ahve been in an abusive relationship before. Warning signs, good signs etc. I got it from the library quite by chance as I was browsing and it has been incredibly useful.
