You are an inteligent woman, and you know that what he is doing is wrong and just unacceptable, as well as criminal assault. It is obviously bad for you and for the children. And he is no more likely to miraculously stop doing this than he is to stop drinking. It is so sad that his family refuses to believe this fact about him.
Do call an agency like POWA which is set up to help women escape safely from abusive relationships. You can obtain a court order to prevent him from harrassing you and to protect you, and make a new beginning - you are educated and qualified, and should be able to get work to support yourself.
Whatever happened in the od way yopu may have signed away some of your rights, can surely be challenged in court and reversed. There is no explicable way in which someone would freelly choose to sign away their rights, for no possible benefit, whatever the situation. If you were of sound mind at the time, you would not have done it ; if you were NOT of sound mind at the time, or under duress, etc., then the documents would not be valid. I very much doubt that any court would recognize them as valid.
YOu do not have top acept this bestial behaviour from this man, and suicide is NOT the only or even any valid way out. Nothing can stop you from getting proper legal advice and assistance, and finding a legal and safe way to escape, to protect yourself and to support yourself. Get the help you deserve and need
