My husband and I have been married since March. We have never lived together and I am tired of the emotional abuse (its what forced me into the marriage to begin with; I actually tried to leave him the night before we got married and he put a loaded gun to his head and told me he would kill himself if I left and didn’t marry him. He then proceeded to beat himself in the head with gun repeatedly…it scared me to death. I’m not good with guns. 5 months before this I had barely escaped death when a man fired at me in my car during an attempted robbery. He knew this and he knew how much I feared guns because of that traumatic experience). Anyways, we have never lived together. He is deployed now and won’t be back until December. But I want out now. So my questions are:
Will I be able to get a separation even while he is deployed?
And will the separation date be the day it is drafted or can I use the day we got married (since we havent lived together) or the day he left for deployment (since I havent had any relations with him whatsoever since then)? Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
