I have been dealing with what I think is an emotionally abusive relationship for at least two years now. We got married 9 months ago. I have since found the strength to realise I shouldn’t have done that and I will never be happy. I finally found the confidence to tell my family and none of them support me. Because of the current pandemic I am living at home with my parents and they won’t talk to me. They won’t come in to the room. They cry constantly all day, like a wailing cry as if someone has died. I asked them to please stop and please try and see my side and they just said how could I have held a bible and said vows and now be breaking them. They actually said “how do we tell the neighbours.” And my Dad said the wedding cost so much money how could I do that? To add to this, my mother in law is texting my mother saying how my husband is broken and crying all the time and will go to therapy and all these things - when he hasn’t even contacted me himself. He always does this after he’s been nasty and aggressive (never physical) - he will cry and say he’ll die without me and that’s how I stayed with him so long. I honestly don’t know what to do. I have lost confidence in my decision to walk away. Now I feel like what if I’m making a mistake. What if everyone is right and we should not break up? I feel so trapped and isolated. I honestly don’t know what to do. My husband is in America and we can’t see each other because of the travel ban.
To put in to perspective - he is extremely controlling, won’t socialise in any way, won’t kiss my lips or have sex with me, only smooth sailing when I’m doing as I’m told.
Please help me. I’ve never felt so alone in my life.
