By the name of god
I want to talk about destiny of a girl who wasn’t a lucky girl.
Her name was Pariya.she had one older sister, and two brothers and two younger sisters. She was born in Iran .when she was 14 she lost her father. After that time they started living with her family uncle. The time was passing. And they were living to gatherr.condition of their life wasn’t acceptable for her. She thought that she is capable for better and much better. few years later ,her mom make her force to get marry with her cousin, his name was Ehsanollah,they got married .but Pariya couldn’t show her love for Ehsanollah .for many times ,she came back to her mothers home. But again her mother forced her to come back there again. Most of times they had arguments, fighting, and a bad situation. More important the other residents in their home could not have a good peace. So in their argument all the other people had to be in bad condition .no one was not in a good mood. No one was eating its food happily; also Pariyas uncle had a bad behavior with the other girls and boys. That home was like a hell for all others. For many times they decided to get divorce. But again it was the elder who said, no never, it’s too bad for getting divorced. And Pariya went to her husband home by white dress and must die there and buried by white dress. And never get divorced. It was six years after their marriage .their life was getting worse and worse. That one day after a hot and long debate Pariya, Ehsanollah and both family found that continuing of their life is not use full and its better for both family that divorce. So one they, at noon Pariya, her mother, sisters and her brothers moved in another home. These couples were living far from each other, but in fact they did not divorce; only lived was 3 years after that, that Ehsanollah decide to get marry for the second time. Now Ehsanollah was engaged, while he did not divorce his first wife. Many times Pariya called Ehsanollah to divorce her, but he did not accept. He said that you have to pay me some money, and then I will divorce you. On the other hand she hasn’t that money .after few month Ehsanollah brought his new wife in a big wedding .it was the time that Pariya was disappointed. And said that I was wrong, I want to come back to my home, and live again with Ehsanollah, but now there was no one to hear her and accept her on that home. she paid lot money to Ehsanollah and got apart for ever. She was disappointed. But it was no time for returning to the past time.

Thanks for your voice. It is sad when people can't decide their own fate and when their fate sometimes depends on the amount of money they have. Marriage can be used as a way to control and it seemed like this story expressed that. Marriage is a commitment and can be beautiful but it should never be a way to trap someone.
