My husband has a twenty year old daughter from previous marrige

Customer Question

My husband has a twenty year old daughter from previous marrige who lives with us. We also have three children toghether. His daughter suffered from sever depression. When I critisize her my husband becomes really mad at me, he also forces me to be more nice to his daughter: to hug and to kiss, which I hate. What are my options. Please advise. I don't work, he is the only provider and everytime we fight, he always frightens me with money.

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Do you wish to end the marriage?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No. I don't want to end my marrige. But I would like to know what I can do in both cases: if I end my marrige and if I stay married. The situation is not simple, because my husband owns the house and all the savings are under his name. When I officially married him 10 years ago (before that we were not married but had 2 kids) he was a wealthy man already. I was working at the bank with a good salary and good perspective. When we moved to UK, I had to quit my job and later my third child was born. So, I never worked again. No, it is probably difficult for me to find a job, as I am 40 with no experience in UK.
