I Love My Wife Only When I’m Away

26 August, 2018
Q Asalam alaikum. I am from Nigeria. I got married to my beloved wife two years ago and moved into a new apartment, but months after our marriage we have begun to face many problems: loss of job, blockages in financial life, severe hatred within us, etc. Whatever she does or says, I get angry. I suspect her and I feel she is the source of my problems. I only love her when I am away. We can't make love. We even eat and sleep apart. I only make love with her in my dream.

When we got married, the house we rented was a bad house. The landlord was a sorcerer doing lots of magic on us. But the truth later appeared when he started doing some sort of sacrifices at our doorstep. We made ruqya, but Allah didn't heal me then. Although finally, I move out of that house, nothing has changed. It has become worse.

I wish to divorce my wife. I even told her this. I cannot bear living with her. Can you please advise me what shall I do now?
