Legally, there is no way to force him to support you while married - ridiculous I know.

However, if you file for legal separation or divorce, you can get a court order for spousal support and for continued medical insurance if if is provided by him through employment/retirement.

It is also possible to make him pay for your attorney if you can't afford one. Your attorney can file a motion for this.

I know it's not what you want, but in order to legally get support, you'll have to file a separation or divorce action.
