You will not get hurt at least.
I still get nightmares about that night.
I promised her that I'll fix everything within a year for her.

When I was expecting, I wished for a baby boy.
Everything seemed to be fine until that day.

What I do in my bedroom is really none of ANYBODY'S business.
My body went numb when I saw all his activities unfold one by one
I didn't want him to have his own way.
“Now, if you don't mind, could you please stand up, I would like to take your picture for my family to see," he said.
Are you one of them?
You are NOT the woman I married or made love to.
I still don't know why.

We were 4 years into our marriage when this happened.
Her husband had given her talaq due to dowry issues and had kicked her out of their house.
Then one one day I got a call from her flatmate.
"What happened?" I asked him.
I could not believe what I found on his profile.
If your husband is frustrated, he can hit you hard without feeling any guilt.
What followed next is a bit of an opposition from both families.
The drama started only after the wedding.
It was just another weekend with my friends. We planned to drive around in the city as my friend had bought a new car.
Sometimes, that's all you need.
The next day I woke up with my legs swollen.

His wife confronted me.
I am a trickster. I can cheat you of you.

It was always the three of us.
I really tried hard to be the ideal bahu for you.
I was horrified.
They demanded for gold.

I don't believe in God, I have no reason to.
My relatives started advising my mother to "knock some sense" into me.
All of this was happening in a room full of children.
"Why did I marry you if you can't do all these things?"
He said, "I will divorce her, my parents have sold me."

I lost my virginity to him.
"What's that thing in your hand?"
Where are you?
While my elder sister was sent to America to pursue her MBA...
My story is no different from any man and woman in this country struggling to get married in their late twenties or early thirties, especially dealing with the age-old arranged...
So, marrying him was my choice, nobody else's.
You are my faithful friend.
Sound familiar to anyone?
I am tired of you asking me to do "good work".
"You can't hit me. Mom just said so!"
He took just one day to decide that...
I have what you'd call...
I spoke too soon.
I woke up to Jatin pulling down my shorts.
Like I said, I don’t force relationships.
Finally, I went to a doctor who gave me medicines that made me 'bleed'.
This is it, this is it.
But to date, I've not shed a tear.
But today's dating norms make him ineligible to be dated.
