Sharing an email.
I hope, you remember the mail that I sent some months ago [An email: “He got very aggressive…”] in which I had detailed my problems. Finally, I made up my mind to get a divorce, my family as you know well support me. Now, my so called husband appointed a common friend as mediator and let me know that he wants to get back with me, I firmly told her my answer is a NO. Yesterday, I received a summons from family court asking me to present myself before court, this was in response to his petition that I have abandoned him and he really loves me and without me and kid, he will be having a mental breakdown. I don’t know why he is doing this. Is it another form of emotional abuse?
IHM, I know the divorce procedures may take a very long time and my husband and family will not give me one easily. I think they want to avoid giving back my gold and money. Do you think since he has filed such a petition, the ruling will be against me or will ask me to stay with him for 6 months or so? Do you have any links presenting a similar situation? I don’t have friends who have gone through a divorce, so I am not sure what to expect during a hearing. My advocate told me there is nothing to worry as my fears are based on filmy court room moments. I am not able to find comfort in her words.
The other option that felt feasible to me was what if I let go the gold and money, not that I am rich, but these people are cheap (a copy of the petition they filed was attached along with the summons, the baseless allegations made me cringe) and they won’t give me a divorce easily. I am sure an out of court settlement with them is never going to happen because of their greed. If I go to court, they will do everything they can to delay the process and torture me emotionally. If they really need a compromise, will they raise such baseless allegations? I thought I will forget everything about the gold and money and start my life afresh, though I am not sure if I am doing the right thing.
