I was in a suicidal state when my fiance broke our engagement. 

 When I confronted him and brought the subject up in a conversation, I was made to feel that it was my fault that our relationship was falling apart, and that I was the reason my fiance was looking elsewhere. Due to cultural taboos, I was worried about what family and friends would say about me, as a women, if my enagement was to be called off. I was worried people would point fingers not just at me, but also my family. I was worried about the shame this would bring to me and my family and what the community would say about us. My world was collapsing I had nowhere to go or anyone to talk to, until I came across the Sikh 2

We have been engaged for three years now, and it was a second marriage for the both of us. Things were great between us and our families. Then over the last few weeks, I noticed a lot of changes in my fiance. His personality was changing, he became more abrupt and began hiding things from me lying to me, and he was declining my calls and not responding to my message. I had suspicions that he was having an affair with another woman and with the continuation of his unusual behavior confirmed my suspicions.
