The Encouraging Mediation Changed Our Life

My name is Amrita, resident of Surkhet, Uttarganga VDC; I’m middles daughter of my parents. I had to get married at the age of 13 with Mukunda Bahadur B.K from the same village. As I got married in small age my family and husband used to love and care me a lot in starting days, but  It only lasts till 7 months.

Slowly my family member’s attitude toward me begins to change, my husband began to scold me in small mistakes, and get angry easily. He even started blaming me for not being able to give birth to a child till 2 years of marriage. After 2 years I gave birth to a boy and hoped that after having baby he will change and be responsible father but the things didn’t turn out he did not even bother about son also. During my pregnancy I had to sleep without food also he did not help me a bit nor care during that period. He used to beat me whenever he likes but I still stayed and stick with him. After seeing my situation my maternal uncle gave me small land and there we made a small hut and settle down, after that also he did not stop torturing me. After he cross his limitation I couldn’t  control myself and I went to my maternal house and express all my sorrow there, they asked me to stay there only with them and suggested to get divorce with husband, I denied to do that so they referred me to Aawaaj and I went there and express my problem. After sharing my problem I felt my half problem is solved. I developed some self confidence; I request them to call my husband once for mediation. As per my request they called my husband and in present of two of us they did family mediation. After the staffs of Aawaaj convinced and explain my husband, he admitted and realized his mistake. He apologizes with me and asked me to forgive him. We went home after we both came in understanding. After 3 month of mediation Aawaaj sisters came to my house and they became happy after seeing us living happily together. We are happy with our new family life, nowadays both of us participate in programs of Aawaaj, and we even have referred 3 women with similar problem like mine to Aawaaj office.
