Modern female slave
I have been married for 11.5 years to a man who is a decade older than me... Ours was an arranged marriage set up by our parents.. we don't have any kids owing to medical complications in both of us.. we have had our differences as with any other couple.. however things went out of hand a couple of years ago... I tried walking out of my marriage but was sent back by my parents every time citing the obvious reasons of a social stigma and the age old solution that he will change. Every time I relented and accepted for their sake. But now I feel I can take it no more. I am tired of being the dutiful daughter. Everything I have ever wished for in life has been strongly refuted. I was practically raised by my mom as dad travelled for work extensively. I played on my school's basketball and hockey team.. however I had to quit coz my mom could not let me stay at school for evening practice... Courtesy my younger brother who would then have to be left alone at home.
I wanted to learn indian classical dance.. dad refused citing reasons that no girl in his family will put up a dance performance in front of an audience! I wanted to learn indian classical music as I have been gifted with a musical voice. This time mom refused with the same reason as dad gave for not learning to dance. I accepted all this gracefully. I concentrated on my studies and became a doctor. I had found my passion which was obstetrics and gynecology... but then this proposal happened.
