I’m 27 and I’ve been married for four years. When we were dating my husband abused me physically and emotionally. In the end I married him because he wouldn’t let me go. I did not love him, but I became pregnant with his child.

I still don’t love him and I hate having sex with him. He can feel something is wrong because now he wants to take me to a psychologist.

He doesn’t beat me anymore but he still bullies me. I want to leave him but I feel bad about the child.
