I had just 3 weeks of normal in my life. It was wonderful to feel blissfully happy even if I was living in shit. Then the nightmare started. I want want me me me give me give me. The constant wanting begging. If I didn't give all hell broke lose. I was on my own not knowing the langauge being a prisoner. I got pregnant quickly. It got worse after each child, he would tell me he would stop when we had children of course that was another lie. I had no one to turn to just him his family only wanted me to be his cash card wife. I do believe his family was pressuring him to treat me bad. They would tell him he's not a man if he didn't beat me for opening my mouth. His sister told him go with other woman because I was pregnant. If I ever see her I swear her big nose will be splattered across her face. His SIL hit my daughter, because she sat next to her husband. I have so much hate inside me I just feel like exploding. His sister stole my money and I hear her tell him don't spend your money on her. I have so much I want to say, the stories I can tell you living as a rat wife because this is what I was. Until he is history I'm still a rat wife. I sympathise with everyone of you here, each of us got our own unique story to tell. Be assured they are all horror stories.
