Swati was born and raised by her loving parents in Kerala, together with her elder sister. Their father died when Swati was a baby so her mother had to raise the children on her own. Her sister had to support their mum at home, so all hopes for a prosperous future were on Swati. Her marriage was arranged, without Swati having met her future husband, and when they finally did, it was too late to withdraw from the agreement. Unfortunately Swati`s husband has an emotional and sexual disorder, and Swati, without having been in a relationship before, only knew that something was wrong, but did not know how to escape from that ordeal. After three months of physical and emotional abuse, she fled from their house and managed to get back to her mum’s place, who – quite uniquely for India – accepted her back home. The family was socially marginalized from that moment on. Swati and her family suffered a lot, with the help of a priest they managed to get the marriage annulled, but because of the discrimination and hostility of their environment, they were unable to lead a normal life, until Swati moved away. She now lives far from her family, by herself, and has never enjoyed the beauties of a positive intimate partner relationship.
