I was engaged with the consensus of my parents but as soon as my in-laws felt that they will not get dowry they broke the relationship. But the boy did not agree with them and without bringing in to their knowledge he got married to me. When his family came to know they got enraged and got him married again. Now I am considering myself very insecure that if he can get married to again under the pressure of his family, he can divorce me too under the same pressure. In this condition can I take divorce from him?
When yours in laws broke the relation, you and your parents should have taken a decision and you should not marry to him. You married to that man since he was persistent, now you should try to convince his parents by serving them. You should not finish this marriage but try your best to keep this relationship.
