Bismillah,

Asalamu alaykom, 

In regard to your husband, have you noticed that there is any particular reason why he has become non practicing? Is there any way you could possibly influence him or take him to someone that can? 

Divorce should be a last resort and as long as he says that he is still Muslim, your marriage would be valid. Also there is no sin upon you for the sins of your spouse. If however you exhaust all avenues and you find that such a marriage is lowering your faith as well, then you need to reevaluate whether this will be best for you in the long term. 

At the same time remember, one’s faith can go up and down so try to remain patient as this could be a test. Try to help you husband regain his faith and make constant dua for him. 

May Allah grant you success

Asalamu Alaykom, 

We have narrations like this however some scholars do ta'wil of these narrations and state that if kissing someone's hand such as a righteous scholar, is done with the intention of glorifying Ahlul Bayt (as), then it is permitted. This is because many respect the righteous scholars due to them being those who spread Ahlul Bayt's (as) teachings, and there narrations from the imams (as) themselves emphasising on respecting the righteous ulema as well as keeping away from the evil ones.

Here are some following rulings which may help you: 
 

An individual who suffers from incontinence and cannot control himself, if it is not difficult for him to perform wodu’ every time, he should have a vessel of water next to him so that every time urine or stool is discharged from him, he immediately performs wodu ’ and continue with his salah. If it was too difficult for him to perform wodu’ every time, then he should perform one wodu’ for every salah.

Case: An individual who suffers from Incontinence must perform wodu’ for every salah, and engage in the salah immediately. However, it is not mandatory for him to perform wodu’ in order to perform a forgotten sajdah, or a forgotten tashahhud, or the Ihtiyat} salah that must be performed immediately after the salah – provided it is performed immediately after the salah and without delay.

Case: An individual who suffers from incontinence such that urine is discharged from him continually must [take the necessary measures to] prevent the urine from reaching other parts of his body while performing the salah by, say, using a cotton-filled bag. As per obligatory precaution, the bag and the urine outlet should be rendered tahhir before every salah, if this does not constitute [undue] discomfort. Similarly, he who cannot control his bowels must [take the necessary measure to] prevent his faeces from reaching other parts during salah, if it were possible, and as per obligatory precaution, he should render his anus tahir for every salah if this does not constitute discomfort for him.

Case: An individual who suffers from a condition that renders him unable to control emitting wind, should act according to the duties of one who suffers from incontinence.

Case: It is not obligatory for the individual who has recovered from one’s incontinence condition to offer qada>’ (in lieu of) prayers for those salah he had performed during his illness, if he had performed those prayers according to his duties outlined.

It is not allowed for him to force you to cut relations with those who it is wajib to keep relations with such as parents and siblings. If you cannot solve an issue by speaking to him, then it's advised you get a trustworthy scholar from the community to mediate and advise him that this is haram and a big sin. If you don't fear any harm to yourself, you may also contact your family without his permission

There is no issue to travel to Muslim or non-Muslim countries provided one knows that they would not fall into sins or do haram actions there. Yes, if going to a particular location would make the person think there is a very high chance of them doing haram then they should avoid travelling there.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

After a man engages in intercourse with his wife, he'll be in a state of spiritual impurity. So in order for him to be in a state of purity again, he just needs to perform the ghusl al Janaba and this will also give make him in the state wudu as well, so no need to do wudu. 
 

If however during the ghusl or after he would do an action which would break wudu, then he would have to repeat the wudu again and not the ghusl.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Earning a halal income is an act of worship and is pleasing to Allah swt. Yes, it is true that some jobs may also fit into different catergories too. For example a job which involves charity related work such as helping the needy people or orphans could fall under the category of mustahab jobs. You may then get jobs which fall under the category of makruh such as selling Kafans or working in a slaughterhouse. Such jobs although not haram, become makruh as a kafan seller may wish more people to die for sales to go up, and the one who slaughters animals for meat, may become used to such an action and cold hearted. 
 

What one should be careful of is falling into a job which is in the haram category making ones income unlawful.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

It is not allowed for one to completely cut ties with those who it is wajib to keep ties with. Yes, one may not have a good relationship with a certain family member and may not want to see them face to face, however there are a number of actions to still keep minimum contact which would not be considered cutting them off entirely. This could be through the phone, email or messaging apps which society would consider still keeping a relationship. 

With parents one should try as much as possible to keep a good relationship and the son ignoring his mother would be doing qat al rahm.

If you mean by 'stay' to live with your husband's family then no, this isn't required. In fact it is obligatory upon the husband to provide a suitable accommodation for his wife in order for her to feel safe and comfortable. 

Living with in-laws can be an option for the newly  married couple who have just gotten on their feet, however it has been shown many times that  that long term living with in-laws can cause many problems as well as a lack of privacy for the couple. Therefore it is recommended that the couple try to eventually find their own place.
