It is about 15 years that I got married. Soon after marriage I learned that my husband loves someone else. He belonged to a farmers’ family but was in love with the daughter of a rich landlord who rejected his proposal for marriage. Every night he uses to talk about her and how she was sweet and beautiful. After two years of our marriage, he got mad and now I am all alone with my children. He cannot provide maintenance to me and my children and it is 13 years that I am living in a tent inside my father in-laws house. As if it was not enough, my father in law forces me to go for begging and earn money for him. I feel ashamed of doing this and I prefer working in other peoples’ houses, wash their cloths etc rather than begging. Many times I tried to commit suicide but whenever I looked in the eyes of my children, I could not do it. Now it is one month that my husband is missing and nobody cares about finding him. I want to get rid of this miserable situation. Either my father in-law allows me to go and live with my relatives or they could just divorce me
