Snared in a web of de­ceit

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Dear Thelma -

I AM married and have a two-yearold boy. My hus­band is a Pak­istani and he has a sec­ond wife in Pak­istan. The prob­lem is, my hus­band is hardly ever home. He claims that he is busy at work. I found out that he has many girl­friends.

I suf­fered a stroke more than a year ago, but I am re­cov­er­ing well. I am work­ing now to sup­port my­self and my son be­cause my hus­band does not pro­vide for us. He hides us from the world. Even his mother does not know that we are married. He beats me too. I thought he was a good per­son, a good fa­ther and a good hus­band but I was sadly wrong.

I have asked for a di­vorce many times be­cause I can­not put up with my hus­band’s lies and cheat­ing ways. How­ever, he ac­cused me of want­ing to desert him just be­cause he is broke. Deep in my heart, I still love my hus­band and I want my son to have a com­plete fam­ily. What is your ad­vice?
