Sheila,

I have not heard from Didi. I check my email twice a day.

I know she doesn't want to hear that she needs to get away, that her situation is different. I was the same way. I couldn't understand how someone could act so sincerely, yet be playing a game with me. Regardless of whether or not he only married me to try to get into the U.S., he did not treat me well. He thought if he messaged me every day, and occasionally called me, I would be none the wiser to what he was doing.

The only reason I discovered what was going on is because he had forgotten that he had shared his Google photo library with me, and that I was still able to access our shared Facebook account. When confronted, of course there was an "innocent" explanation, but combined with how he was treating me, I knew he was full of sh*t.

These men don't have any respect for women, all women are only objects for their gratification or a means to an end. As a woman, you aren't supposed to question them, and meanwhile they are free to do as they want.

I want to tell Didi that no decision she makes will make her happy at this point, there is only trying to make the best decision under the circumstances. She will probably always be in love with her husband, and that will make it difficult, if not impossible, to end the relationship. Believe it or not,

I still love my husband despite all the crappy things he did, but the relationship was toxic and things were never going to get better. He had proven that time and time again. Also, why would I want to be with any man who lies and cheats? He never valued me or our marriage, despite the gifts they were to him. Frankly, I will never understand his behavior.

Submitting....
