Here are some of the answers given to this question on the forum:

  • "The first thing to do is Ardaas and ask Guru ji to guide you. You can also contact Sikh Helpline they deal with things like domestic abuse and have a 24-hour helpline http://sikhhelpline.com/domestic-abuse."
  • "You still want to be with your husband because you are ill and suffering from Battered Woman Syndrome.What you should do now is to call sikhhelpline like gn suggested."
  • "Do you have any friends, anyone at the Gurdwara that can help you? try to find a place in a shelter and they might be able to help you to find a job. We cannot say why he did this. It has nothing to do with you and it was not your fault. Love shouldn't hurt and it doesn't have to hurt."
