I've been in marriage for the past five years. We have two kids, the youngest is 8 months now, the oldest is 4 years old.

My situation is that I came to USA to marry my husband after one year of dating. The first week here I got pregnant, then started my Calvary. He is very controlling person, always controlling the money, abusive language calling me terrible things in front of my child.

I feel like I am on egg shells. Even with all of that, I am afraid to leave him. I don't work, I don't have money, so I don't know what to do. I am very isolated too, no friends, only my husband. I feel incapable of doing anything on my own.

What and how should I do to leave him??
