I am a 29 years old lady that is married but don’t know about where my husband is, he left to work in the middle east and I started living with his parents. In our culture all marriage are arranged and we must look after the parents and family of the husband. My husband used to contact me but it has been over 6 years now I heard nothing from him. I hear rumours that he has a new girlfriend where he works. I get no support from him or the house I live with is his father’s and has only 2 rooms. His parents are old. I don’t have my mother,she died few years ago and my father lives with step mother and brother,so I don’t have any where to go for help. I can’t divorce my husband as he doesn’t live in the country and I don’t know how all these systems work. The villagers tell me I will get in big trouble, which I know as I have seen other women thrown out on the road and beaten by the relatives.
I would like to become a yoga teacher,I have a big knowledge in yoga and meditation as I get to read books that people left in a guest house I wash dishes. But to become a yoga teacher I need around 2000 dollars to pay for a school and they will teach me also provide me with a certificate. There is a school near where I live and I can’t go and live somewhere far as my inlaws will not allow me to do so. I live my life being scared of everything and everyone, I don’t have any choices,other people are controlling my life.
I want to be free, want to make my own money and live my life, I want to be in the situation to divorce my husband and not live on the road.
I hope that you are kind to help me with what you can and give me the freedom of my life, I want to live, please help me.
