What you need to know:

  • We run an electrical shop and he uses workers to spy on me and tells them I'm not supposed to go anywhere
  • What disturbs me further is that he comes home late drunk and starts quarreling with me in front of our children. My five-year-old daughter told me to leave and go back to my dad's place after he slapped me in her presence


I have been married for the last six years, and we have two kids. My husband doesn't respect me at all. We have worked together and moved from renting to buying land, to building our home and rental houses and we recently bought a car. We are not struggling at the moment. What surprised me recently is that he started abusing me even in public, saying how I don't mean anything to him and that he can live his life without me. He no longer eats food at home, complains about everything, is tough, and does not listen to me as he wants to do things his way. The worst part is that he doesn't allow me to go anywhere even if I ask for permission. We run an electrical shop and he uses workers to spy on me and tells them I'm not supposed to go anywhere. He even stopped me from going to church. He is a non-practicing Moslem, and while I was ready to convert, he never took me to the mosque. My kids have grown with no religion since he doesn't allow me to go to church. What disturbs me further is that he comes home late drunk and starts quarreling with me in front of our children. My five-year-old daughter told me to leave and go back to my dad's place after he slapped me in her presence. He cut all my networks because despite me holding a diploma in architecture, I don't know where to start. We are not legally married. Please advise me.
