I cannot have peace

My husband doesn’t give me my rights and peace. If I get divorced, neither will my society and relatives.

I am 34 muslim woman and not married yet!

I can’t help but being negative, anxious, frustrated and feeling like I just want to be alone.

Family marriage

I don’t feel I am ready for this and I don’t see compatibility with him but they won’t listen. Is it wrong for me to say no?

Living an undesired life

I want separation or to run away from all this.

Marriage Advice – should I marry him?

Lately I have been feeling doubts which have been causing me anxiety and I’m not sure if this is an answer to my istikhara?

How do I get out of this dark phase of unrequitedness?

But for now I feel completely dead, as my whole world has died or if somebody has taken the best thing I loved from me.

Giving up hope of marriage because real Muslimahs don’t exist.

I feel like killing myself when I even think of the possibility that other men would have seen my wife naked or touched her inappropriately, let alone zina. I will feel like a fool and cuckold my entire life. Therefore, I am thinking of having a girlfriend myself now because that would give me the peace that I have never had in my life, but fear of Allah keeps me from doing that.

Setting boundaries with husband and expecting acceptance

I feel my husband doesn’t trust me to allow me a break and I shouldn’t be with him. I’ve never cheated on him during our relationship and even gave up talking to friends (including my best friend) to please him. But the more I give up, the more he wants out of me. I also feel that I shouldn’t have to tolerate and accept his behavior, and the kids shouldn’t have to see that.

My husband is a poor stepfather

Three times I needed to bring her to hospital, and every time I was alone because he didn’t believe that she was sick. That hurt me a lot and I told him but he doesn’t understand my feelings, so when he is angry he says that he doesn’t want to look after her because also her father doesn’t look after her.

Why is my mother like this?

Every time she does this I cannot understand her at all. How she thinks that is. She feels that us, her children, owe her a lifetime of debt. Why? Because she gave birth to us, fed us, clothe us and give a roof over our heads.
