Abusive husband threatens me to resign job for meagre reason

Asked by Female, 30, Married
I am married for 4 years and a professional with well job. My husband gets abusing sometime at meagre reason. He expects me to do all the household works and office. If I fail to do any one household work he threatens me to resign my job and get abusive. I cannot take it anymore and feel like getting out of it.

So from what i gather, I understand that you are facing a difficult time dealing with your husband in your marriage. You seem to be put under a lot of pressure from him with regard to expectations of household work as well as at work. He threatens you to leave your job if you are unable to complete chores at home and even sometimes gets abusive. This has naturally left you frustrated and you wish to seek a way out of it.

Firstly, I would like to admire the strength in you to be able to manage this all this while. I am sure it must have been very difficult for you to be put under such pressure, threat and abuse.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process? Are you seeking a way out of this marriage or you want to be able to manage yourself and your situation better within the marriage?

Could you tell me a little about yourself and your husband as individuals? About your marriage- whether it was arranged or love marriage; how was the relationship in the beginning? When did all the problems start? What according to you started them? Have you taken any measures so far? Did anything work or not work? Answering these questions would help me aid to your concerns better.

Please respond back to continue our discussion. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards.
