"Dear Pulse,

My name is Imelda and I have been married for 16 years without a child to call my own. As I write this, I am full of tears and at times, I am tempted to ask God what I have done to deserve this punishment He is letting me pass through.

It is not as if I was a bad girl while growing up though I did most things that many girls my age did but I was never wayward and I have never committed an abrotion. I have done several tests and they always come out that there is nothing wrong with me, so I wonder what the cause of my barrenness could be.

The problem I am currently going through now is that everyone seems to think the problem is mine. My husband who is supposed to stand by me has turned his back on me and in the past two years, has made life a living hell for me.

He has drawn me in the mud, all in a bid to drive me away. There is nothing I have not seen in this house but I have decided to stay put and endure every disgrace believing that God will answer my prayers one day.

Now my husband has turned to abusing me both verbally and physically and just two weeks ago, he slapped me in the church over a minor issue.

Some of my friends have been advising me to move out of his house or better still, sleep with another man to see if the problem is not actually from my husband.

The way I am feeling now, I think it is better I commit suicide than live this meaningless life.

What do you think I should do?

Imelda,

Lagos."
