Jealous husband
I have been married for 8 years and have two kids age 6 and 4. Since I'm married, I am not allow to have any friends or even go out with friends. I have therefore lost all contact with my old friends. At one time he found out that I was busy chatting with my old school friend whom I know for 29 years who live abroad, he choked me and left marks in my neck. This is one of the examples I'm using. I then told him that it will be better if we separate, he then said that he will strike a match and burn me out whilst choking me. I am afraid of making the wrong move cause I don't know what the result will be. Please help.

Married or not, you're allowed to have friends and to see them --- if your husband doesn't "allow" that, he is being abusive. And potentially dangerous. Call POWA ( in the phone book ) for a detailed discussion of your options, including planning a safe way to leave the creep and get a court order preventing him from any further attempts to abuse or disturb you. POWA can help you explore alternative sae places you and the children could go to --- their going to school next year is no reason to stay with such a rat --- they will be far better off away from him.
