  1. Assalaamualaykum broken_hearted,

    I hear you sister. You're basically "just not feeling it" as they say. Have you tried marriage counseling? There may be ways to actually get the love you want from your husband, but it will require some help, perhaps from a therapist. Also, I know that part of you really wants to leave the marriage, but have you tried really communicating your respective needs to each other? Sometimes we need to ask someone to be more visibly, tangibly loving with us or intimate, as it doesn't necessarily come naturally to both or one of the partners. There is nothing to be bashful about. Try that first sister and see if it works.

    Now, if you try those things and you're still not really feeling it, you can go for the divorce.

    I don't know why some Muslim parents Force their children into marriage! The prospects of such a marriage are worse than Poor. Try to explain to your parents that a marriage is supposed to be happy and harmonious and wasting ones life in a Miserable marriage is Wrong! For instance the Prophet's (saws) adopted "son" Zaid, divorced his wife Zainab and Allaah swt admonished the Prophet for having attempted to stop the divorce for fear of what people would say.

  3. Wa alaikumsalam dear Broken heart. I am sorry to say that divorce is not the right way for me to suggest at the moment. I understand how are you feeling but I have to look at both sides. I don't know how he actually feels toward you. 4 years is long enough for a love to be derived, perhaps there is an obstacle that avoid it be exposed. Anything could possibly happen withon that time. If it is not good for you at the first place, Allah wont simply let you both married easily and have a daugther. Something good wont come without you want it with all your heart, maybe you should try harder until Allah makes you feel you've tried enough. If you feels like it is over, think about your daugther. She deserve a best chance. Always remember, Allah has reason for each and everything happens in our life.
