I can't afford to divorce my misogynistic husband | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE grown to hate my husband, but I can’t afford to divorce him.

When we met ten years ago, I thought he was a dream come true.

But now I know that was all an act, and really he’s a nasty misogynist.

He is 59, and I am 54.

He’s a big drinker, often having three or four pints a night, and a bottle of whisky every weekend. That’s when his true colours come out.

I work part-time as a carer at a local dementia day centre three days a week.

As I don’t make much money, I pay quite a small share of our bills. He’s always bringing it up, calling me “cheap” and a “gold digger”.

The funny thing is, he does absolutely nothing to help at home. Apparently, housework is “women’s work”.

I’m desperate to leave, but have no savings.
