My husband and his family are greedy
I have had a love marriage 2 months ago but my husband proved to be an extremely weak man. Although he had told me many times that his family got ready to bring his proposal after considering all material benefits but he always assured me that he was not like them.
I knew him for 4 years. To some extent I believed that he was greedy too for my money and car. But still I could never expect him to treat me cruelly or demand the things from me so openly and shamelessly. I had some faith in him that he loved me and will protect me from his family.
His family wanted me to give him/them all my wealth soon after marriage and he didn't stop them from putting undue demands on me. Rather he himself argued with me over material issues very openly. He put all the responsibility of making a house on me because I am working in Saudi Arabia.
I teach in a university here and earn a very good salary. He and his family asked me to give him my car immediately and he also asked me to give him 40 thousand rupees every month when he comes here with me. When I refused they asked him to send me back to my parents on 12th day of marriage and he did the same.
He had taken an oath on Quran just 1 day before in front of my mother and sister that he would not do any wrong to me or demand anything from me nor he would let his family do the same. But within 24 hours he did exactly the opposite. He is not ashamed until now. Only once he admitted his fault but only after one day he started showing the same stubbornness that he or his family didn't do anything wrong to me.
He is all the time trying to prove that his family is very noble and they gave us a lot of gifts and my family is not of their standard. Whereas Allah knows that the reality is just opposite. My father still wants that if they realise their mistakes and seek forgiveness from us and also promise/give some guaranty that they will not repeat the same with me in future, we should reconcile with them to save this marriage.
Kindly guide me what should I do to make him realise his mistake. Should I hope that he will become righteous and I will live a happy life with him or should I just break up with him and move on with my life?
