Snared in a web of deceit
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?
