“We’re almost home. You will be safe with us now,” my mother said as we drove the _____ hour distance from ____ to ______. It was the Spring of ____. My parents rescued me after several months of experiencing abuse and cruel treatment from my ex-husband and his parents. Three years ago, I was engaged to a man whom I did not know so well, but my parents felt would be an ideal match for me. A few weeks following the engagement, I flew to _____ from ____ during college for my wedding ceremony. I was twenty years old and was entering into an arranged marriage, as dictated by my culture and tradition. The marriage was not to be consummated (begin? implement? can't figure out the right word here) for another two years, i.e. after I completed my undergraduate studies, which meant that I did not have to move to ____ just yet.
Let me know if I'm headed in the right direction.
