He Keeps On Cheating
Does your partner keep on showing his infidelity to you? Is he starting to make you feel that you are worthless as a wife? If you answered yes to all these questions, then it is time to rethink your marriage. Do not be afraid to move away because you deserve so much more.

He Abuses You Physically
If you are a battered wife, make sure to report your spouse to the local authorities. No one is supposed to treat you that way. No one is supposed to hurt you physically or emotionally. Keep in mind that the moment you allow your husband to keep on hurting you, he will no longer stop. As such, your life will become a living hell. At the same time, it can also be stressful for your kids. There is also a high possibility that they may become hurt because of the situation. Because of this, it is time to leave your partner behind and start a brand new life without him.
Divorcing your spouse is not an easy thing to do. It is only normal on your part to feel afraid of what might happen after the marriage. What is essential now is to think of yourself first. Prioritize your happiness first instead of suffering.
