You didn’t ask a question so let me just respond to your statement. You are under absolutely no obligation to lie for someone who hurt you. Pressuring you is yet another form of abuse. If you are feeling threatened, you may need to consider a restraining order.

I suggest that you contact Legal Aid to determine what services are available to you:

You didn’t mention which branch of service your husband is in. Do consider talking with the base chaplain. He or she may be able to direct you to some family support services.

I wish you well.
