Do your partners cooperate?

I might have to LTB when this is over if I come out alive.
Mine is x-smoker and frequently coughs. Goes out daily, but refuses to use a hanky.

When in the same room, covers his mouth with hand but then touches all sorts of surfaces. When on his own in the room, doesn't even do that. When I suggested he uses hanky or tissue, says if I don't like it, I can clean up after him!
Can't isolate as stuck in 1bed flat.
Relationship beyond repair anyway but this is the last straw.

Are your partners more cooperative?

I couldn't be with someone who can't comprehend basic hygiene, that sounds so inconsiderate.

Yes, dh is brilliant. We have occasional silly bickering moments but he’s kind and considerate. Yours sound horrible.

You say the relationship is beyond repair. What’s been going on? Maybe it’s a case of surviving lockdown with minimum interaction/arguing and making plans for after.

Yes, starting to make plans, bullying at each and every opportunity, this just tops it, wishing me dead all the time too.

Just because we are in lockdown doesn't mean to can't leave an abusive home. Is it an option for you to leave now?

Just leave!! If you have any other option just pack up and go. Leaving abusive relationships is allowed and I would certainly
Say wishing you dead is abusive. Just go, if this is teaching us anything it's that life is short.
