1995: Arranged Marriage . When she came to Mumbai to see the boy,in the arranged marriage set-up, the boy only talked about sex and she had not liked the boy. She did protest when she went back home, but no one listened to her arguments and the marriage was fixed. After marriage, she found the husband focused only on sex and the attitude of waman as a vassal - to serve the man. He would have sex every night and later would abuse her and make crictical comments about her small breast-size. He would watch magazines and compare the models to her. She would retort that he had seen her and then only chosen her, for what she was. All this would lead Constant Fights with husband.

Now are even going through difficult phase in life financially.
Husband is an introvert, insecure about wife; does not like her going out. Has sent son to hostel. Patient is just living with him for the sake of it.

But looking at her, she looks poised and arrogant. Is very particular about her appearance especially looks. Was always compared with sister because the sister is more beautiful is always jealous³.

Will buy expensive clothes even shoes because thinks people like me, appreciate me because of appearance. She is well accepted by in-laws.

She wants her husband to say sorry
Cries³, worried children are not settled.
Patient never shared her problem with anyone till now. Lately has started talking to sister and friend.

Anger³ when upset, shouts and screams at children, cannot control her anger, now stopped hitting her son. Sees shades of her husband in son.
Responsibility over burdened; nobody to help.
Brooding³. Self-pity³.

Always wanted best for the children, expectations from children³. Son and daughter couldn't clear  started crying thought why my children have to suffer.

In free time wants to talk to people, feels she is in a cage.

Loves music³, dancing³ Everything thwarted after marriage.
