My 1st marriage was a disaster, we were both young and immature and I was 6 months pregnant when we got married, prior to this he has broken my shoulder given me 2 black eyes over minor things mostly to do with his jealously if I so much spoke to another male. We spent a lot of time apart as he worked away. When I did leave him he came round to a friends place I was staying and walked arround thehouse all night with a gun, when I got legal advice he rang the solicitor and told them if he took my case he would shoot him and his family, the solicitor then rang the police about the threat, when the police came he had thrown the guns over the neighbours back fence, and the solictor dropped my case. He smashed all the windows in another house I was staying, when I rang the police I was advised untill he hurts me there is nothing I can do. That was many years ago I do hope things have improved for others since then.
