    I arrived here in the US 5 years ago. I got married to an old American man whom I met online. I was part of this site where you can get yourself an online bride and yes, I am one of those online brides. We talked online and eventually met while he was on one of those tours conducted to meet their supposed-to-be bride. He eventually asked me for marriage and seeing that he was good enough for a husband, I agreed. However, as marriage life drags on, he slowly became violent towards me both physically and mentally. He told me that I am only a woman he bought online to be his slave. The thing is, I have already invested so much into this relationship —- love, time and effort. He never came to notice it. I have come to love him throughout these years and now, I don’t know what to do.

    Dear Zahara:

    I don't see any way to fix a relationship with a man who told you that you “are only a woman he bought online to be his slave”.

    I think you need to contact a women right group, a group that advocates for women in your position. There are also shelters for abused women who leave their live in boyfriends or husbands. You met him online, can you go online in search of such groups and shelters, counseling and any practical help  possible for yourself?

    I am with Anita here, Zahara. It is not a relationship if he considers you his slave. Do you have any friends that can help?
