Our expert says:
Did he think he was making supper only for himself ? And if he was, why then go out for a beer before eating the supper he'd made for himself ? What a stupid thing for him to argue about. If he then assaulted you physically, that is totally unacceptable. And to do so in front of the kids is even worse. He must have had a lot more than "a beer".
I think you should report this as an assault to the police and open a case against him for assault.And consider asking the court for a restraining order against him. Get the wounds, bruises, etc., photographed and witnessed.
COnsider leaving, thouh if the house belongs to both of you, the restraining order from the local magistrate could order HIM to leave, and you could get the locks changed to help you to be safer. Do you have some family who could come and stay with you ? And maybe if he wants to speak about this, they could mediate between you, rather than exposing you to more risk.
It sounds odd if this is the only time he has been violent towards you - and all about a dish of peas ?
