Emotional or physical abuse is not part of the Islamic marriage; these are sinful behaviors.
Spouses are meant to be a comfort for each other and not sources of violence or hurt.
Emotional abuse can be devastating for your mental health, and when physical violence starts occurring, that takes the whole situation to another level.
Call a local domestic violence hotline, and they will detail the steps to follow. Also, speak to your parents and ask for help from them or from others in the community.
