As Salaam u Alaikum
. I wrote to you last year december for advise on my marriage as my husband and I were separated due to major conflicts. You advised me to see our consult with our elders at the time. My husband refused and also refused to go to Jamiatul Council. However, we have reconciled and gave our marriage another chance, but it is now going from bad to worse. He even beat me up, slapped me and rough handled me. He speaks very loudly and all our neighbours can hear. He even insults me in front of his friends. I am also not sexually satisfied with him, but I ignored that part as I do not want to anger Allah. I am very unhappy in our marriage, He does not support me financially or emotionally and he bad mouths my parents, which hurts me a great deal. He will never go for marriage counselling and I am so tired of fighting as this is so emotionally draining. My heart goes out to my two kids because he argues and abuses me in their presence and we are both in this marriage for their sake which he has implied so many times. Please help me with advise as to whether I should carry on keeping quiet and allowing him to do all this and maybe he will eventually stop or should I apply for faskh. I do not want my children to suffer due to my decision as I feel selfish if I leave this marriage due to me being unhappy.
