I have been married for 10 yrs and have a 5 yrs old child. I used to work and my husband took all my money for household expenses saying it is for our betterment. Then when I stopped working he claims his money is his and he feeds me so that is good enough. He verbally abuses me.
In this 10 years he stays in a separate bedroom almost 7 yrs ,though we stayed in the same house. Its been more than 1 year we do not have any physical intimacy. It is becoming extremely painful for me. He refuses to divorce decently and says I can go away if I want to.Is my marriage still valid, since we do not have any relationship what so ever?
And secondly how can I divorce him?Please let me know. Thank you.
He is not a good person and you are in your right to leave him. By saying that ‘(you) can go away if (you) want to’, he gave you the right to divorce yourself any moment you choose.
