in response to reader comment: Married to Kurdish man

This all sounds so so horrific and I think you know what to do. He has beaten you down mentally and physically and you cannot go on like this anymore. Your self esteem must be zero?! Please just divorce him and get out of this horror story once and for all. Your life is so awful and if you were reading your own story you would be screaming for that person to get out of this mess - as I am. You can divorce in the UK and when I divorced my Turkish husband the solicitor told me that these days they can serve papers on Facebook and by email so it is not impossible. As for registering the divorce in Iraq, does it matter? I am not divorced in Turkey but that is not a problem unless I want to marry another Turkish national or marry anybody else in Turkey - this is not going to happen!

Please secure a safer future for yourself and do it now. This will take some years to recover from but you write in an eloquent manner - you are not stupid clearly and deserve a much happier, calmer life than this. You will recover from this but it is your responsibility to take control and start on the road to get out of this horrendous saga. I cannot believe you have put up with so much - he appears to be a drunken narcissist who has bled you dry in more ways the one (as his family have too) and you deserve so much more. This is not normal life Lou! Please protect your self and do something for your own sanity in order that going forward you can live a peaceful, happier life.
