Hubby of 23 years says marriage vows are too restrictive. He’s asked me many times to leave but I have not. This week he has a visiting relative in our home who is a very bad influence on hubby so I decided to go to a hotel for the 4 days that the relative is in my home. After the relative leaves, when I return home, how should I respond if I find that my husband has changed the door locks and I cannot get back in my home? Knowing him, that’s a trick he might pull on me. Thanks for responding.
Editing to add that I am leaning toward filing for divorce from bed and board at this time since I would be able to stay in our home and he would be forced to leave our residence. I understand divorce from b&b is not a marital divorce and we would still be husband and wife but that’s fine, I’ll turn it into an absolute divorce down the road if I feel like that’s what I want at that future time. That’s not really what I want right now.
