    I feel so heartbroken.

    I know I am not happy and I know what I need to do. But I can't. I can't uproot my family and hurt others. I feel trapped in a marriage, where I am not valued or treated with respect. I would rather be single, with my girls, than to be with someone who doesn't value me. I pray...
