Meharun's Story: My Husband is a Drug Addict
I got married when I was 19 to a 30 year old. Falling in love was wonderful then. He was a great person. We married despite the difference in religious background and against our parents wishes. Little did I know that he was a drug addict ...
During our courtship, never did I sense this. He went to prison several times due to his addiction. Leaving me and my girls behind all stranded each time. And during those times, I have always wanted to divorce him but each time he would ask for forgiveness and to give him another chance.
This time, he has done it again for the 5th time, and leaving me stranded with 3 kids now. I can't take this anymore and am now seeking divorce. It is a painful process that I will be going through but am doing this for the sake of my kids.
My daughters told me that they do not need such a father who is so irresponsible. They are 11 and 10 - and my son is 15 months old. Though the girls are young - they are mature in their thinking.
They have seen how their father had deserted them over and over again. The numerous fights they saw in the house and the times their father gets so stoned taking drugs. Its too much for them to endure.
I have come to a decision that it's best to leave him so that I can provide happiness to my kids. And that they will grow up in a house without seeing their parents fights and seeing their dad going through the vicious cycle of his drug addiction. I hope God gives me the strength to go through this.
