What does one do?
I said i was going to leave my abusive husband and i said i would give it another chance. Now i am stuck in the marriage that i feel nothing for and i feel nothing for him. I am misrale every day. I cant even make myslef happy. All he wants is to have his sexual needs fulfilled and when we do it i am purely doing it to satisfy his needs. I feel nothing. He picks fights for the silliest things and always says that if i leave him i will have nothing and because his family has money they will make sure i dont even get my child. I feel like he is threatening me to stay, and i feel like that is the only reason i am staying.

I have asked him to get a counsillor for us to go and see, i specifcally asked him to do it because in the past i was always the one fixing things and i thought for once he could do something. I have been asking for the past week now and today he tells me i must look for one because he does not have internet access. I just feel that i he really wanted this to work and he really was concerned about my feeling, because i have told him everything i am going through, we would have been in councelling by now.

What should i do!

Call PoWA< and explore your opptions. If he is abusive, you can as well leave now as earlier. OK, as for counselling, he has asked you to find one ? Call FAMSA and find a good local counsellor, and tell him that you have made the arrangements for this --- as he had asked you to do, and that obviously you expect him to join the sessions and participate actively.
