DEAR ABBY: I have a problem with my husband, "Howard." I moved from my family, left my job and sold my house to marry him three years ago. Now I feel trapped.
I'm a housewife and I take care of his mother who lives with us (another story). I'm at home all day. He refuses to get another car because he's "afraid" I'm going to meet someone else if I go out.
Howard doesn't like my friends — the three I have. He has taken church away from me, because he believes a husband and wife should go to church together: He doesn't, so I can't either. He's verbally abusive. I feel I can't do anything right. Everything revolves around him.
