Hi All Members, I am an independent woman with a one year old baby. Its been 3 yrs that i have been married, to this man who is uneducated and immature. Why do such men and their families want a well-educated, english speaking, earning, modern wives when they themselves are backward ? My MIL is a very backward lady who is completely obsessed with her son, she envies me so much that she has even started dressing like me!! She will fight with me, complain against me all the time to her son and keeps brainwashing him. But the problem is not her really, coz i was not married to her, i was married to this man who is a total loser. He is totally self centered, never cares about me if i am sick or in pain, he does not give a **** about telling me or asking me about imp decisions like involving our house or finances. he hates it if i get importance anywhere more than him, behaves very badly when he comes to my parents house and will not talk to my mother (though, he will willingly accept cash and gifts, and later will never acknowledge the fact that my mom does a lot for him) Everytime we have a fight either he will pinch me really hard or he will push me or hit me ( i have started doing the same things to him now). Never has been a moment where he has been romantic or mentioned that i mean a lot to him or said i love you or even that "you look nice today" never! Whenever i have problems with his mom he will take his mom's side ( he could be neutral atleast) and start complaining about me out loud like.. she is lazy, doesnt cook properly, keeps buying useless stuff etc. Doesnt care for the baby or play with her unless, he wants to show-off to someone. He and his family are a big Show-off so much that i hate it when they start bragging and want to run out of the room.. Living with these people is getting tougher by the day.. please help me and let me know what happens after divorce? do you really face a lot of emotional challenges? what about the kids? what all do they have to face? which is a better bargain considering my situation that i dont have any financial troubles ?
