    I Married Because Of The Church

    When I met my husband, we were friends. I was going through some hard times and he gave me stability. When he wanted more than friendship, I didn´t have the courage to reject him. So we lived together for a while. This didn´t go over well with my Christian background and...

    That was the dumbest thing I've ever done.

    We hated each other from the first day. Had three unplanned pregnancies then still married him knowing I couldn't stand him. I tried to call it off the day I got married. This is why I will never get married again.
