As my old rule says, if he was the only one laughing, that wasn't a joke.
According to your story, he has been suspicious and accusatory without a basis, emotionally abuisive, and physically abusive on one occasion ?
Maybe a group like POWA that helps abused women could help advise you on how to aford to leave safely ; and you need good legal advice, such as from a free law clinic at your nearest law school. Even if he would probably blame you for everything, does he at least recognize that things are not good within this marriage ? Does he have any interest in improving matters ? COuld he possibly be persuaded to join you in mariage counselling to see what might be achieved ?
Does he have any family who might be sympathetic to your plight, and to whom he might listen ? Have you any family within reach who could help support you ?
lets see what other readers can suggest, too.
