    having a go at, long way off

    Her husband is always having a go at her ugliness. So, he ran a long way off home and settled there with her new husband.


    Is this expression correct?

    Please help me.

    The phrase "having a go at" is British English, and I am not British. Nevertheless, that does not seem to me to be the way that expression is used. Also, the sentences do not go together.
