    Surprised by everyones response

    Ladies

    Thanks for your response,
    different responses, suggestions, ....but lot of learn from each of them.

    I am planning to try hard for finding volunteer work in chicago...which will keep me occupied...

    when he come home on weekend...start calling home...i am just going to do my best to keep myself calm.....don;t know possible or not ....this house feels like a hell on weekends....but i have to grow up mentally and try..............you are right reeja(indusladies memeber) ......life is not as easy as it seems.

    in this one week i learned a lot....after reading replies on indusladies....it good to know how other people deal with it.....

    i have two questions,

    1. does anyone knows how much time it takes for green card after medical ?
    2. what is the wife's status...does she get independent status for herself once gc is received?

    incase u know the information
    please let me know

    hai geeta!!!

    I feel very sorry for all the torture that u are facing.I am not sure if urs is a love or arranged marriage.But still nobody can stop the fact that u cannot summon ur parents for a crucial decision.Try bringing in ur parents or ur neutral relatives and have a kind of open discussio.Afterall marriage is never a bonded slavery nor a written agreement that u should never see ur parents.In that case even ur husband has to stay away from his people.All these things apart try to convince ur hubby upon taking a part time job and never forget to stay in touch with ur hubby's friends and their families.Probably things would smooth out once u start taking up a job.Never loose ur courage and of course never feel lonely for we all are here at Indus ladies to help u out at any time.I shall pray for ur speedy settlement of things.Stay in touch and take care!!!!

    luv,
    Lasya.

    Hi Geetha,

    I am Geetha too.. and i feel very sad for your life.

    First of all, to give u little peace, here r my answers to your visa questions:

    1. After medicals and if your hubby's lawyer files all the documents properly as requested in the 485 form, then you should get your EAD (Employment authorisation Document) in about 2 months time. Once you receive this, you are eligible to work legally.. so start looking for a job and accept anything thats available to get out of your situation at home...
    If your husband files for GC along with your details as well, then there is no problem..

    2. Time frame for GC- Getting GC depends on various factors.. mainly security and finger printing etc., for some people takes longer than others. Anyway, once you get your EAD, you don't need to worry this much, as you can get out of home and work.

    Finally, is your husband a nut case or what? Just bcos your parents made a mistake, he is penalising you and ruining his own life in the process l...Just don't put up with this crap. If he is an educated, civilised guy, he should talk to your parents in detail just once and then forget about it. If he continues to harass you based on his parents advise, then if I were you, I would ignore him totally as though he doesn't exist and then carry on my life peacefully with lot of prayers and outdoor activities like exercise, walk, yoga etc.,..

    The only sensible thing to do under the circumstances, is wait for EAD, get a job asap after ead comes, then make sure to concentrate on your job, career and if possible further education, if needed to grow in your career. Once you start making money, he will automatically shut up.Never allow him access to your money.. start saving from day one, so that, in case of any emergency, your money will help you more than your husband...in your case.

    After you receive the GC, wait and see if your situation improves for better, call your parents and make them come over to US and deal with your husband and inlaws to amicably resolve all the issues once and for all, so that you and your hubby can start fresh without any ill feelings. If something like that has to happen, you have to be very strong, sensible, independent and patient to carry on life until such time. With all these issues around you and your hubby, do you have any love for him .. or since its an arranged marriage, have you guys developed any understanding at all so far? if so, you both probably can solve the problems in the near future.

    Lots of issues like this will get resolved automatically once you start making money... GODDESS LAXMI has a magic touch in everyone's life.

    I will certainly pray for your life and as they say GOD HELPS FOR PEOPLE WHO HELP THEMSELVES. So try be as independent as you can be once you get your EAD.

    Regarding inlaw issues, i went thro' a lot with my FIL and i guess for indian women, no escape from it. Try to tackle your hubby by whatever means and then see, how your inlaws behave.

    Take care and pray as ONLY the ALMIGHTY can change people.

    Hi,

    Read your thread. It is really a pitiful behaviour of your husband to treat you badly when you are not at all at fault. Even if you have tried talking to him and not helped, then the only solution could be to start a family.

    Sometimes what couple as a husband and wife cant do, a child does. It makes a couple, a complete (Parents) family. Once you go through your childbearing (pregnancy and delivery) the love of your husband will come around. He will understand the pain you went in being a mother. A smile on the child's face will melt his bad thoughts towards you. Also you will be busy once a child comes in your life and wont think about the pains you went through your marriage.

    A child also means an heir to a generation. The love for a grandchild will make the heart of ur in-laws change towards you. I have seen this work with many couples whom i have known.

    Maybe it works for you too. All the best.:2thumbsup:

    Geeta,
    Look up your local Red Cross chapter. They always welcome volunteers. Another good place for volunteering would be your local library . What with budget cuts and all of that in most towns they could do with the addtional help.

    All the best!

    hi there,
    i have read your situation. i am also in same situation.the only differnence b/w u and me is i have a kid and u don't. i was forced to have a kid because of my gynic prob i can't delay and i have to and even my husband is not gud to me. we had physical relation for 1-2 months and i got pregency thats it our relationship. u know right immediate after my delivery they started abusing me and my parents(my husband, his mother and sister). due to differences b/w my parents and his parents my husband didn't allow my parents to come to my delivey nor he send me. till the day before my admit into hospital i did all household things. due to that abusing i stopped eating and starved. for this reason i couldn't breastfeed my kid even for a day. even though i am 25 i am having all lot physical problems. since u r telling u r husband is gud with you do some courses if u can after getting greencard i would be easier for you to get job.
