Dear Love Doctor,
I’m married but I’m not happy in the marriage.
My husband lied that he has never been married before. I tried everything possible to investigate this guy. Even when I went to pay a visit to his mother, I did everything within my power to find out some things about him. He loves me and I love him so much.
Three years into the relationship, a cousin of his told me that he has two women, who have children for him. I confronted him but he denied.
I called the mom, she also denied that it was all a lie.
Sadly, I later found out that it was true. He has married twice.
I felt betrayed and cheated. I was very angry, I wanted to quit the marriage but my family said marrying more than one wife is not against my religion since I’m a Muslim.
My mom convinced me to stay and I listened to her. However, I have a plan for myself.
I don’t intend to stay in this marriage. It’s been over a week since I saw my husband be he has gone to be with his other wives. I’m very sick and I happen to be the only one in the house.
What if something happens to me in the middle of the night?
Nobody to help me.
I hate him. I am depressed and frustrated, I have nobody to talk to.
Currently, I have nothing doing. He doesn’t even take care of his responsibility as a husband. To give me money for food and other necessary items. I desperately want to be free from this bondage called marriage.
But I am scared.
I don’t even know what to do.
I don’t even know how to proceed.
Please Sir, where do I start from?
