The mena person did me the same way. I was in danger when I traveled there. He told me that it was a land of peace but was not. I was in a room with him alone and his sister took me out on the streets at 11pm. and tried to sling me into traffic because their family honour is everything and I had dis honored them. If reported I could have gone to jail for 3 years

There are so many things to consider......the legal system there is not nice to women.

I did do what you say you are going to do......It cost me much pain. My value was only in the fact I was American and could be used for a visa. It was very hard on me. I lost 3 years of my life to this man only to have him cheat on me again after we only had 18 days of marriage. I loved. He lied.

On my older computer, I saw a very sad picture of myself. It was taken after I returned to the states to go through with his immigration papers. It made me cry. I have been blessed with beauty and I look very nice before I went there. Then I saw this picture. I was tired and sick...I looked old and worn out. I did end up in the hospital. I looked at the picture as if it was someone else, some little lady that I cared for. And it made me cry. Since recovery and the stress is gone, I have my looks back in tack, but also I am stronger, wiser and will not settle for anything less than I deserve. I know who created me and He placed me where I am. I did go chasing waterfalls. Very dangerous.

Lorna please think. We are all telling you the truth. You will be worn out, tired and he will leave you. Lying, cheating...all this is acceptable in these countries. We believe you deserve better and you do...don't you think??

The action that I feel best for you to do is to cut off all social media, phones, where he can contact you. Let your mind clam down. Seriously I do not want to see you hurt anymore. But you will be if you do this.
