I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for almost 7 years. She grown up in an abusive household which has caused her mental health to deteriorate. She has been diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety. I am the only support she have because her family did not take the condition seriously and accusing her of just trying to seek attention. She just graduated, but her family did not allow her to look for a job or get out of the house. Her condition is getting worse everyday because she is staying home all day and had to endure all the mental and physical abuse from her family.
I have been saving up to marry her and take her out of the household. Unfortunately after COVID-19 struck my country, I have been jobless for 5 month now, and I hve used up most of my savings for my expenses. In my country, its a tradition for the groom to pay dowry to the bride family upon marriage, and they are expecting up to 5k for the dowry, plus they are also expecting me to pay for the weddings reception. Her family give me until december to come up with the money or they will marry her off to her family choices. Arranged marriage is still a norm in my country thus I am not able to stop it if her parents decide to marry her off to someone else. This is my last resort to raise some money to marry the woman I love, and to hopefully take her away from her abusive household.
