    Chalk this up as a lesson learned, it's only been 1 year, you can now move on!

    It was scary 'cos they were staring at me with their mouths open as I walked pass as if they were going to say something or thinking something.
    Their mouths were probably open because they were shocked and couldn't believe that your man would leave you alone on a dark and scary street!

    While I agree that you don't need a man to protect you, and while I don't think he needs to be brave to the point of being stupid, I see his behavior a sign that he won't support you in difficult or scary situations, that he will run like a coward at the first sign of trouble.

    Not the kind of guy I want to be married to IMO.

    He doesn't respect you. Avoid unsafe areas like dark alleys or uncomfortable situations. I don't think you're doing yourself a favour. Start taking care of yourself and depending less on others to help you. What he's displaying are all the signs of someone who is in contempt and/or someone who is resentful towards you. He may even be fed up of your complaints. I am not saying they're not valid either but if this is all you've got to say about your marriage, staying is not an option for you.

    You also mentioned you have Aspergers, anxiety and PTSD. Be realistic with yourself and create better expectations out of your partner. If he/she is not willing to meet those expectations, regardless of your mental health or any disabilities, that person shouldn't be in your life. Not everyone will want to understand you or will be able to understand you. Cultivate friendships and relationships that do. Start expecting more out of your relationships and don't settle for this kind of behaviour. It's part of taking care of yourself and taking responsibility for your own life.

    Honestly, you need to divorce this man-child. Do you want to live the rest of your life like this? I didnt think so. Get out.

    Try to walk out with crowds as opposed to just you and your husband which will make you look like easier targets to thugs.

    Carry pepper spray or mace.

    Reconsider if you want to continue being married to a coward.

    Or, try to moving to a safer neighborhood!
