I was raped two weeks before my arranged mariage and for fear of being beaten or left by my husband and family I have chosen not to tell. The very first night of my mariage I beckoned my husband to bed with me so that he may be convinced of me having his child. I am now in my 6 week and only one other person knows of my rape. The person who commited the act, my manager. He threatens to tell my family if I do not sleep with him. If I get rid of the child no one can say anything to commit me.
