It is about one and a half year that I have got married. My husband has a very bad attitude towards me. He did not want me to get pregnant and when I did get pregnant, he wanted me to do abortion which I strongly rejected. 8 months ago when my baby was born, he kicked me out of the house and told me never to return. I went to my parents and stayed there till now. He is not paying for me and my baby’s maintenance.
