I've been with my husband for 13 years, he engaged me 2009 we met 2008. We moved in together 2009, the lobola negotiations we're finalized in 2016. Still living with him 2021 we have 3 kids together, I'm thinking of ending things I don't trust him at all myself and the kids depend on him since being with him I haven't worked at all. What rights do I have I'm interested in knowing what are mine and the kids rights?
