1 Comment

As I looked further into arranged marriage for my upcoming features I found this piece that really moved me. Touching and emotive real life experience. Beautifully written from Love, InshAllah

Love, InshAllah

I am madly in love with a good man.

Next week, I am going to marry another.

I have cried more tears this year than I have cried in my entire life. I have been brought so low that I cannot see a way out. I no longer trust my own judgment, my own thoughts, my own brain or heart. I used to be amazing. Now I am a mere shadow of who I used to be.

You read about stories like this. But you never understand how it could happen now, in the 21st century.  You never imagine it could be you.
