Question posted in the Family Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal
My husband and I have been married since 2017. I used to work as a financial planner in 2012, he was also a financial planner with much more experience, we had a serious relationship before we got married and he asked me to leave my job and work with him and become his private secretary, which I did because I loved him and wanted to be married and have a family together. I worked with him from 2012 up until 2017 because I fell pregnant with my firs child and he decided he would only marry me then and I should leave work and stay home and become a stay at he parent and he will continue paying my salary and take care of my needs. Since then I have had a second child and I now have two kids. They are 3 and 1 with him. While at home I continued to help him with his credits and all details he needed to start of a brokerage and his own business. I did everything to support and help him. Now that he has his own business, I fact two businesses after all my hard work with him. He continues to belittle me as I'm still a stay home mom as he doesn't want me to work with him any longer. Every month he threatens me if I don't behave a certain way he will stop paying me and that I should get out of the house. And I cannot drive any vehicle. We have two cars. He purchased a vehicle last year in July and mentioned its for me. He hides the keys away. He holds back money from me and only does things for kids. I am been financially and emotionally abused and I want to know my rights in this marriage as he says if I leave him, I will have nothing.
