    Hello Sir/ Madam,

    My husband has not loved me his entire life, betrayed me and cheated me. He married me for wrong reasons, now is in love with some other woman and highly abusive to me. Once broke my arm while I was in USA and now its come to such an extent that abuses physically verbally virtually every day and is highly Hello Sir,
    insulting towards my individuality and my mental status is driven to insanity. I had to literally take medicines. Now I want to separate from him either taking divorce or living separately legally whichevr is the best. We have a >5yrs daughter. He never paid for both of our expenses. I want my daughters custody.
    I am doing a temporary job, whereas he has lost his job. He is arrogant and has displayed violence to others to, like his PhD guide
    Please let me know what my chances are
    I am waiting for you reply.

    Dear. normally a man starts abusing and other type of bad activities maybe due to some problems in his life. o that time you need to support your husband . i am sure you are more talkative you start talking on that point of time . i think that makes trouble in your lie. and yes about cheating . i just want to ask one thing to you . when you decided to marry with him that was you a kid? i suggest just support your husband sweetly in his bad times make him cool. after all you have daughter . this time is not to think about you self , now the time is running when you both need to think about your daughter. and spoiling this relationship is just like spoiling all your Life. rest up to you. wishes
