Everything you say Deirdre is very true you know what is bugging me just now ? Having to explain to people my situation, people that were excited though apprehensive that I was leaving u.k to go to Morocco but they were happy for me and knew I had been patient and waited so long for all to fall into place with this marriage. I really did my best while he sat over there claiming he was doing what he could but he honestly contributed nothing to this marriage. I told him something had to happen soon as I was lonely and fed up living like this . A marriage that only gave me a piece of paper and a ring on my finger nothing else I had no companionship nothing..he sat and did nothing hoping I would get him here. I got tired of it all.

But what's getting to me now is the expression on people's faces when I explain what's happened. They look at me as if ..stupid woman ! But I know I'm not stupid. I was very vulnerable at that time and he knew that. He was relentless. And honestly I had no idea guys would do this...be willing to marry and wait years ! This never really never concerned me at first ...but honestly I was just a broken vulnerable woman who needed to feel loved and respected and he knew what to say and when. Yea I do feel duped now and silly but I was a loving giving decent person who was abused and lured into a trap. Now I see it all very clearly. Then I did not.

But if people would just sympathize without making me feel I've been stupid that would help. This why I know I'm getting real concern on here from you ladies who completely understand what's happened to me and how easy it can happen to anyone know matter how smart ...we don't judge here cos we understand. Honestly if I was stood in front of him now he would get the biggest slap across his face for doing what he did to me.. thanx again and take care love to all xxx
