Blog Reader With a Heartless And Irresponsible Husband Needs Advise

Dearest Laila, This is my first mail to you although I have been on the blog since April 2014. I know you are a banker so you may relate to my struggle so I decided to write you about the situation I am going through. 
I am also a banker and my husband who have been living abroad for almost 8 years was repatriated early last year from Spain. He didnt tell me the truth about what happened but I knew he actually ran away from the country over some deal which went wrong and the law was onto him so he escaped back home and since then I've been the one footing the bills. Since he came back, he has been tormenting my life, Although he came back with nothing because his Spanish wife wouldn't allow him leave with a pin, he even left his children with the woman over there and ran home to maltreat and boss me around even though I foot the bills.
