Hey Too Weak, That is really heartbreaking. You are asking lots of good questions of God. Keep in mind God punishing us is not mentioned in the New Testament. Prayers for you each moment of each day.

It's a classic tactic for abusers to totally isolate their victim from others who love them. That appears to be what is happening here. It's a highly dysfunctional relationship for a man to control a woman's every move. Love isn't about keeping a woman on the side. It will take courage on your part to act. You have to decide if you want things to change. I know it is hard. Please pray about at least calling a shelter and getting input on the situation.

Confused, I'm concerned about your situation. I encourage you to go to a local women's shelter (without telling the pastor) to talk through your situation. If action needs to be taken they can assist you in developing a plan.
