A stay-at-home mom's trauma with separation

Kyrakinky - posted on 09/04/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I was still pregnant with my daughter, when my husband & I got separated. We are not divorced, just separated. I don't have a full-time job, mostly stay-at-home. My 5year old daughter loves to be with me & her daddy. Sometimes, I feel deeply guilty for separating them. Every weekend, she goes yo stay with daddy. When I go there to bring her back, she always wants to be between us. She somehow wants to connect us & come right between us. I feel so guilty to keep her away from a normal childhood. I live in India & I'm deeply religious. I don't want to mess up my baby.
My husband is a great father, but a selgish & abusive husband. He is deeply suspicious of me, controlling & abusive. I was just afraid of our daughter to see that. On the other hand, he is an excellent father. He is a man of compkete opposites. He never wanted me to work; but wants a successful career for our daughter. I love him dearly; but also afraid of his abusive nature. He loves me too, but has an inferiority complex & easily gets abusive on me. Later in the morning, he repents his behaviour. He cries, asks for forgiveness & later repeats the same thing. That is why I chose to stay separate.
Please help. I don't know what to do.
