My name is Clara and I have two children. I got married in India in 2005. We did fight, but not more than a normal married couple. His temper got worse, and our fights became more frequent and more violent. We wanted to leave India, so we moved our family to the United States, hoping that we could start a new life. When we got to America, things were going really well for us and our children. We both got a job at his uncle’s hotel. In 2017, the fights and abuse began happening once again. His uncle walked in on him beating me and I begged for his help. He helped me and suggested that I go back to India to give my husband some space. How could I leave my children and my job behind?
