I come from a Pakistani, Muslim family. I was born and raised in the US. I am 27 years old, with 2 kids. I was forced in a marriage at the age of 17. Everyone that would hear this story would say, "you can't be forced in America". Well my parents always said, "parents are always the well wishers, and they know best." I tried to convince them not to arrange this marriage, but it didn't work.
So from 2000 to 2005 I tried and tried to love him. Whenever he touched me I felt like it was so forced and nasty. He's a very caring man-he provided and helped me raise our kids, but I just never felt the love. I recently told my dad about the situation and he said "divorce is not the answer, he is a very caring, loving man and you have to get used to it."
I just don't know where to go on with life. I'm still in college and can't even support myself. ANd the thought of my action of divorce makes me feel that I'll lead a negative domino effect in many people's lives. I spoke to my husband about me not loving him, but he always says "you have to make sacrifices and try" WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN??
