My friend who is already married and have kids had a problem with his husband even long before..(they are already married for 10 years. My friend suffered bruises from her husband when she was 7 months pregnant with their youngest child.She is also emotionally-battered because her husband, unlike other man, is a nagger and frequently shouts at her even in front of their maids. He even say foul words against her in front of other people and their children which caused trauma to their eldest child. But that time, she did not file a case thinking they could still make the marriage work.
My friend me a guy who was an exact opposite of her husband. They went steady until this time but unfortunately the guy is also married (separated but not yet annulled) and have kids too.
She is now pregnant courtesy of her boyfriend and about to give birth soon. They want to legalize everything before their baby comes out but my friend's husband seems to change his mind about separation or annulment. He wanted now to fix the marriage. My friend is asking if she could use previous instances (like their previous confrontation which caused her bruises) for a ground in filing a case against her husband? If not, what is their (my friend and boyfriend) last resort? They really wanted to get married.
