I got married to a man in the Army six months ago and moved away from home with him – away from all my friends and family. I’m only 19 and he is 21.
At first things were great and I was loving life, then I found myself crying all the time because I felt lonely and my husband never seemed to care.
He sleeps all the time or plays video games, and never wants to do anything with me.
Whenever I try to talk about how I’m feeling, he just yells at me.
He has said a lot of hurtful things, which he’s never apologised for, and afterwards he acts like nothing happened.
Recently, I told him I wanted to go home to gather my thoughts and he went mad, shouting that I wasn’t allowed to go home.
I have been going to a counsellor and she is telling me to get out.
My only problem now is that I don’t know how to leave.
Do I tell him I’m going, with the fear that he’s going to explode with anger or do I just walk out and break his heart? I care about him so much, but after living with him and being treated so badly and unable to do what I want, I’m just not happy any more.
I feel I will be so much happier at home with my family and friends.
