Our expert says:
Indeed, it doesn't sound like a loving marriage, mainly on his side. Letting him buy a car in your name may really not be a good idea, and if he threatens to leave you over something like that, it sounds even more as though there is something wrong about the deal.
No proper husband or father stays out so late partying and drinking.
Is the home / house in your name or his ? If in your name, it is him who would need to leave. You probably need to find some good legal advice, to be sure of your rights, and how to protect them.
And be sure, if you two do part, that you go to court and have it arranged for him to pay proper maintenance for the child's expenses.
It sounds as though you have been more than reasonable, and i he sees no fault in his behavior, and refuses marriage counselling, then he has no right to expect you to just put up with his selfish behaviour.
Just be careful if there is any possibility of violence from him, as such p rimitive men, who consider their wife to be their property, rather than a full human being in your own right, can at times get violent to try to force you to acept what they want. Involving both families sounds like a good idea, and they both have a duty to protect you and the child.
A lawyer is, one hopes, qualified to advise on your legal rights ; he is NOT a marriage counsellor not qualified to advise you what to put up with or whether you should do so.
Let us know, on the forum, how this evening's family session goes.
