What can be the solution for a woman without social and financial support to get rid of the physical and mental tortures of her husband? Her children support her, but the spouse is a sadist and can never spare her from his inhuman attitude.
The man can never forego his ego. He also suffers from inferiority complex. His mother supports him for his misbehavior towards his wife. The woman suffers from the emotional setback and is not ready to get a divorce.
I think she has to update herself financially. Unless and until she can create a foothold where she can stand firm she would be drifting without any goal. Her mental strength has to be built up to meet the challenges. She has to improve her skills that can be a source of income for her. However, it is easier said than done.
