Re: Obsessed with running away....
You need to learn to ignore any mental abuse any of your relatives give you, real or imagined, and instead concentrate on your real problems and their solutions.
Even without transport there should still be alternatives (buses, share-a- ride, etc) for getting to employment or a school where you may improve your education and qualifications. Don’t let anyone disparage your efforts or criticize your ability. Before I worry about what someone “thinks” (of me) I always ask myself the question, “Can this person actually think in the first place?“ If the answer is no, then I am certainly not going to worry about what they “think” of me or my efforts!
As you “get on your feet” and start to save a little money, you will become able to afford a divorce attorney and, at this point, will be taken more seriously by your husband and everyone else involved. While I would try to avoid divorce if at all possible, being financially independent should allow you this option if there is no other. You may be able to get custody and some assets from your husband, if you can prove that they are properly yours and that he has misbehaved, and thereby necessitated the divorce. None of this will have to be proven if he will grant you an “agreed“ divorce. You should be able to then live happily with your children.
