Hi Writer,
Thank you for writing in. It takes great courage to reach out for help.

It seems to me that you are facing difficulty with your marriage. Although it has been a couple of years, it was a marriage you were forced into and you are not happy in it. I understand that it must have been very difficult for you to get married out of your choice.

Firstly, I would appreciate the courage in you for being able to manage so far. Five years is a long time to be able to continue in an unhappy relationship.

Could you tell me more about yourself and your husband as individuals?
Who forced you into this marriage and why? Is your husband aware of this?
What are your expectations of this marriage? What is it that is making you unhappy?
How was the relationship between you and your husband initially and what is the status of it now? Who else is there in your family and what do you do on a daily basis?

Answering all these questions would enable me to be in a better position to help you.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process?

Please respond back to continue our discussion. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards.
