I know about a case of a woman who refused to give divorce, even when she had no plans to live with him. The husband in this case was a womaniser and cared for his mother,sister and her kids than his own family, left wife and daughter ,when daughter was just around 2. Both came from wealthy background. But the point woman had was her chance of remarriage was not there, then why he should get a second chance. I think I would support her, he should not have married in first place if his intention was to not lead a normal married life. But eventually he did get divorce when daughter was around 15. Now in late 40s married an another woman who was never married. I know in most cases woman disagree to give divorce not because they want to live with abuser instead to make sure the abuser don't get a clean break and get to have second chance in married life, while the woman will be left to care children with no prospect of remarriage. I think it's fair that woman seeks to punish the man who spoiled her life by not giving a second chance to him in marriage scene.
