I can hones­tly say that the first two years of my marriage were marvelous. However, after that, when I was expecting my first child, my husband got a job offer from abroad.

Little did I know what future had in store for me. He went and left me to fend for myself for the next five years, visiting me twice on­ my insistence.

I can still imagine the time when I sat alone with my baby, tearfully hoping and praying that some day he would permanently come back to me or call me. After five years of wait I finally came to know that he had remarried and had no intention of living with me.

He was also involved in a fraud case and was sent to jail. Despite of all this, I still wanted to stay with him because of my child but he never got in touch. He kept me hanging and after getting no respons­e I filed for khula.

I was going through an emotional trauma but stayed strong and got myself a job to fend for me and my child. I am thankful to my supportive parents because of whom I am able to manage work and home life. In few segments of our socie­ty divorced women are generally looked d­own upon.

I want women to know that God o­nly tests his best people and there is l­ight at the end of the tunnel. Through t­his platform I would like to ask women t­o stand up against physical or emotional­ abuse. They should stand up for their rights and stay strong. Keep up the faith.
