Few months into the marriage

Things were different now! We hardly spoke! He just orders me things to do and I have to fulfill them. Just in case if I fail to do then he would bash me up so hard that few times I was left unconscious.

I was in no intention to raise my voice but I tried to change him with trying to talk to him. Making him realize that this is rude and so hurting. Luckily, we lived alone and I had the time and liberty to make things work between us.

With love and constant effort, I made him realize that what he was doing was indeed wrong. And in this process, I was strict and ridged with him. I always believed that things would not work if the two of them were shouting at each other.

3 years into the marriage

We were blessed with a baby girl and now she became our lifeline and our second chance for our marriage. During the time he realized how harsh and rude he was and this realization has got him guilt too.

Thing that helped me and my marriage was, when both shout nothing would resolve. Calm down and talk it out. Be free with the mental disturbances and look for ways to make things right in your own way.
