big.jpgCan you imagine watching videos of your husband having sex with your maid? And seeing your husband enjoying pornographic movies in front of your 5 and 11-year-old children? Or your father-in-law taking photographs of you and your husband having sex? This is the marriage from hell which a woman has been forced to live with for the past few years. The husband had also tried to strangle and drag her around by the hair to discipline her. He played on her vulnerability and low self-esteem by telling her that she needed the chastising because she did not come from a good family. As the husband came from a powerful and influential family, she was afraid to run away or seek help from others. She had tried to kill herself several times but the thought of her children made her continue living.

Her husband takes drugs and this becomes an excuse for his frequent sexual rounds and abuses. She has to bear the physical and psychological torture for she has no one to turn to and was too intimidated to seek help. The sex videos and photographs sickened her and she finally got away from the house. Divorce is inevitable but more importantly she should get justice and compensation for her ordeal.

Every woman should be empowered and educated with the awareness that they are special human beings who deserve respect, dignity and love. A husband who abuses her either in a physical or psychological manner must not be tolerated. She has to stand up for herself and protect her children from their own father and his crime.
