I am recently separated from my husband who originally set up MY IPad using HIS computer and HIS username and password. He will not give me his password, so how can I get updates on any apps without it???

i might be misunderstanding, but from this i get that you are able to use the ipad its just the password for dealing with apps and such? that would all fall under the itunes account.

You can't get updates without knowing the password. If you go under Settings / Store, you will see the Apple ID of your husband.
If you want to be able to install new apps or upgrade existing apps, you will need to get your own Apple ID, and AFAIK, buy the apps again.
