Hello. I got married 1 year ago. I’m 33. He’s 48. He’s Muslim. I’m Christian. He considers himself as a very religious person. He prays 5 times a day, he goes to mosque few times a week. He does charity. But when it comes to me he’s acting very abusive. That’s how I understand all this. He always screams at me for every small thing and I must be quite and not answering back. He’s always right, I’m always wrong. My opinion never means anything. I’m not allowed to leave a house without his ok. I’m not allowed to have Instagram. He prints out all my phone calls and questions me about each call. He always criticizes me for every small thing . He always says I must obey him. .I live in fear with him. I often have headaches . . When I tell him don’t scream at me he starts screaming even louder. And tells me that I’m not normal and make him scream. My family is far away from me and I don’t know what to do. He calls himself a very good and religious person but I don’t understand how good person can pray in the Mosque for hours and right after come back home and scream at his wife for every small thing. I don’t know if I should continue keeping this marriage or if I stay I will just get damaged even more ?
Yes get out. Not sure where you live but if in the U.S. you can reach out to a woman’s support group or abusive shelter... they will help you.
Being religious does not always equate to being a good and kind person.
Seems he is being indocrinated in that Mosque into some brand of wahabism or another. I think you should protect yourself, and leave him before it gets worse. I'm sorry.
