My husband and I have been married for 2 years and 8 mos. For at least the past year he has been very hostile and critical of me. I many times tried to talk to him about his attitude and would ask him if he was committed to the marriage and if he loved me. He always told me he was. I have always told him that I was committed to the marriage and that I wanted to make it good. He is 58 years old and I am 60 years old. When we got married he moved into my house which I had already paid for in full. I make less than $10k a year and he makes over $80k a year.
Last Friday, Oct. 1 he left dressed for work but returned a couple of hours later. His handed me separation papers. Then he spent most of the day going thru the house and packing up things. I told him to stop but he would not. Most of what he took was his but some property belonged to me. He had some movers come and they moved all things out. My house was left partly bare and in a mess. I was totally blindsided, in shock,very distressed and I felt very violated.
I asked him why he was doing this and he said because he wanted his freedom and he wanted to do as he pleased without answering to anyone.
Is this considered abandonment?
