Online romance to pregnancyI was 16 when I met the father of my daughter, he was 15. We were both gamers, and I met his mates through a school function. They introduced me to him over facebook, and we started chatting. Chatting eventually grew into something more. 5 months later we decided we had to meet each other, so I jumped on a bus and after 5 long and nerve wrecking hours, we met. The first night, we had sex. I don't regret it at all; it felt right because I was comfortable around him. I only stayed for 3 days, and had to travel back. From then on, our relationship was never the same. A few months passed and I felt my body starting to change. So I took the test. By this time, I and the baby's father were hardly talking; the reality of distance had finally caught up with us. I knew he wanted something more. So did I. After 2 more tests, I visited the doctor for final confirmation. Later that night, I told him the news. He got angry, and also very scared. We talked until 4am the next morning about how we were going to deal with it. He said I had to abort, but I wasn't so sure. He told me if I kept it, he can't be around for support. I could understand that, but it was not the answer I was hoping for. 5/05/12 I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl, Kyla. She looks nothing of me, with big blue eyes and golden hair- all her father's doing. He and I don't talk anymore unless necessary. Every so often I take Kyla to visit her father and his family. They adore her so much. Thankfully my family was supportive, also. I left school so I could get a full time job to provide for my daughter. I've sacrificed a lot, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have everything I need, and she's right here.
StruggleMy name is Aasia. I am originally from India, but am now living in US. I am 60 years old. I have a lot of age, and a lot of experience. When I was 15, I was told that I was having an arranged marriage to a man called Rizwan. I was not happy, as I wanted to continue my schooling, but at that time, girls of my stature had not choice. My family was poor and we were "lucky" to find a man who would lessen the financial load on my family. He was willing to pay the mahr, a gift of money to me, but also a bride price to my family. They were eager to see me married to him. We married when I was sixteen and he was 30, and I quickly found that marriage was not what I was told it would be. Rizwan refused to allow me to spend the mahr, or even to see it. He also stopped me from seeing my family. I was still a young girl, and I was not ready to become a mother, but he insisted upon having a son. He had another wife before me, but she was unable to give him children. 10 months after my marriage, I had my first daughter, named Saira. I was very happy with her, as she was a lovely baby, but Rizwan was not happy. He insisted upon a son. When Saira was only 4 months old, I found myself with child again. I gave birth to another girl, Jannat. I now had two young children, and Rizwan and his family began to get angry with me. They demanded a son. I had another child when Jannat was a year and half old. This time a boy, Yusuf. I was very happy and relieved to have a son to please Rizwan. He decided that one son was only not enough. 2 sons was necessary. When I was 21 I had my 4th child, a girl name Shehnaz. Rizwan grew very angry with me, giving me only one chance more to have a son. At 22, another girl, was born. Her name was Nasreen. Rizwan was furious and he threw me from the house. I was forced to return to my parents and live in shame.
It was very hard with my children. My family was still poor and it was very hard on them to feed 6 more mouths. I working as a seamstress, but did not make good money. My children barely had clothing for their schooling. When Nasreen reached five, Rizwan returned. He wanted another son. He had married a new woman, but they had not worked. I was still married to him, and there was not much I could do to deny him. I had my sixth and seventh children, twins named Mawaan and Farah. Rizwan was happy for another son, but he was upset with the daughter. Things did not work with us, and Rizwan again asked me to leave home, this time with seven children. I was 28 and prospect for remarriage seemed dim. No man would take a woman with 7 child. I moved back into my parent home, and things were harder. my sisters had married since, but there was still not enough food. At many points, Rizwan returned wanting my sons. He wanted them but not my daughters. I wouldn't allow him, and he had drinking problems soon after I left, that would not let him see the children. He soon began to ignore them, and did not see most of their life. I was both Ammi and Abbu (mother and dad) for my children. Mawaan and Farah do not much remember him, but I am not sad. They are not sad neither. Although times were badly, I work for my children's success and today they have brought me to US. I encouraged my children to learn. Saira, Yusuf became doctors. Jannat, Nasreen and Shehnaz are teachers. Mawaan is in school now and Farah is working as a psychiatrist. I am very proud of my children.
