"My husband hid that I was a manglik from my in-laws and here's what happened when they came to know..."

It's been two years that we have been living separately and now my husband wants that we should move-in back with his parents. 

I got married to my college sweetheart when I was 23. We were young and we were in love and we thought our love would be enough to overcome all obstacles.

But in reality, it isn't that simple. Soon after I got married my in-laws wanted my husband to divorce me. Even though my husband never took their advice seriously it put a  strain on our relationship.

Here's what happened with me

My husband's family is very much into horoscopes while my family is relaxed about it. I am a manglik and my husband knew if his parents would get to know about it they would never ever agree to the match.

daughters-in-law

So before marriage, my husband made a secret pact with my parents. He told them to hide this fact from his parents and assured them that he would take care of everything.

My parents complied and we got married. His parents saw a copy of my horoscope that was made by my husband's pandit on his request. We got married, things were usual. Yes, my in-laws had expectations and my family did everything beyond their limits to make them happy.

But things changed soon

I wouldn't exactly say that my in-laws were very welcoming towards me but then you have to be exceptionally lucky to have in-laws who accept you unconditionally. But after a month or so things began changing drastically.

My in-laws stopped talking to me and every night they would call my husband to their room for some important discussion. When this continued for a week I broke down and asked my husband what the matter was.

This is when he confronted that one of his buas to whom he had confided about my manglik status had told his parents about it. And after many days of supporting his lie with another one, he had finally told them the truth.

All hell broke loose in the house since then. My in-laws would taunt me and even indirectly ask me to go back to my house.

They wanted a divorce

My in-laws thought the only solution to the problem now was a divorce. Even though my husband did not consider it even for a moment but he kept quiet when they called my parents names and referred to them as liars and cheats.

Eventually, I had to say that if they were cheats then my husband was a bigger cheat as it was he who masterminded to hide things.

Our relationship became so strained that we had to move out of my in-law's house. Today it's been two years that we have been living separately and now my husband wants that we should move-in back with his parents.

I am not prepared

I try explaining it to my husband that once we move in with them things could again take an ugly turn. In these two years, they have shown no sign of affection towards me and have never visited our home.

My husband thinks that I should give it a try as they are aging and as their kids, we should not leave them feeling unattended. I am in a dilemma as something inside me tells me that this will not work. What do you all think I should do?
