Can you answer a few questions for me?
How old are the two of you?
How long have you been married?
Do the two of you live alone now?
How far is Balckburn from your family?
Who is this friend he wants to move near? Why does he want to move near a childhood friend instead of staying close to family?
Are both of you muslim?
Was he acting badly toward you before marriage?
I am sorry for what you are going through, and I would urge you to remember that it's not only important that we love someone, but that they love us back. Emotional abuse tends to lead to physical abuse and as you are not a child, there is really no reason for him to be yelling and calling you names.
You have the upper hand in a sense in that you already suspect that making this move will be harmful to you. As women, we are given a gift of women's intuition, and I always tell my clients, if you think its something wrong, then there probably is, and you should pay close attention to what your gut it telling you.
With that being said, here's a link to support organizations in that area, including domestic violence info.
I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more
