She says that her husband then asked for forgiveness and said that he was determined to give up alcohol and to stop acting violently. “I also couldn’t stand living in the middle of that situation and making my family suffer”, says Amilton (husband). The two no longer lived in the same house and she stayed away from him at first. “He started attending ‘The Love Therapy’ in the Universal Church and I started to see changes,” she says.

After a while, the two started talking again, but this time with respect and clear rules. “We talked and I put the conditions for him: that I didn’t want any more alcohol or fights.” The couple guarantees that they have never faced situations of verbal or physical violence again. “There has to be a desire and let go of pride and prejudice”, concludes Amilton. In addition to reconciliation, peace between the two also provides a safe environment for the couple’s three children, who will have the opportunity to grow without further trauma.
