Good Morning,

There is not much you can do.

You can ask your husband to have mediation and counselling to try and save the marriage.
If you believe the marriage is over, then you have to have counselling and if that fails you can apply for a divorce once you have been separated for 12 months.

I am sorry to hear what has happened but if you want to save the marriage you can seek counselling.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
