Thank you for this initiative to #breaktheglass and tell the story of my very close friend, Frances. 
Frances was going through emotional abuse because her relatives and friends friends treated her with scorn because she was up-to the age of marriage but was not married. 
She was under pressure to marry so that she could earn the regard of the society and relatives.  So she hurriedly married a man who was also dating other women. On her wedding night, she overheard her husband telling another woman that he had to marry Frances because his family arranged it. When she tried to confirm it with him, the husband beat her up on their wedding night. 
She became very depressed and withdrawn to the extent that the husband would beat her and lock her up in the house for days. 
This continued until one day, she quit her job in a bit to make her marriage work only to discover that the husband had been living with another woman in another town from where he used to visit her. At this point, she had to divorce the man and started living her life to the fullest. 
She was used as a money bag for a husband who did not love but only wanted money to spend. 
Now She is living her life happily.
