1. You have abundant remedies against your husband. You can file for divorce on the ground of cruelty against your husband. 

2. You may also file a criminal case for attempt to murder, assault and dowry violence against your husband which can result in his arrest and conviction.

3. You may also seek compensation from him  for the domestic violence suffered by you by filing a case for domestic violence. This apart, you can also sue him to claim maintenance for yourself.

4. Now you can decide what you are supposed to do.

1. This is a bad marriage you have entered in to,

2. You shall have to decide whether you want to continue with this relationship or terminate it,

3. If you want to terminate it, file a police complaint u/s498A and 406 after collecting evidence of all his torture on you,

4. When you are injured next time for his beating, get your self tested/treated  by Govt. Hospital and preserve the medical records. Submit photocopies of the same while lodging police complaint,

5. fter that file DV case against him,

6. Finally file a divorce suit on the ground of cruelty demanding substantial amount towards compensation.

1. What is your query this time? 

2. It is clearly a bad marriage and you still want to bear his child and that too in a natural way?

3. However, you shall have to decide whether you will carry on with this matrimonial relationship or want to terminate it,

4. If you want to carry on with him then try to adjust with his claims/demands/cruelty,

5. If you do not want to continue with him then  file a police complaint u/s498A and 406 after collecting evidence of all his torture on you and also DV case and  Divorce suit as suggested in my earlier post.

The marriage expenses can be recovered from him if you can prove the incurring of claimed expenditure in the court.
