I am angry and sad at the same time. For one year I had been dating the man that I thought loved me and would be the "one", but two days ago I found out his intentions were different. We're both from different cultures, I'm hispanic and catholic and he's muslim. The islamic culture is not new to me since I have a great understanding of their practices, yet when a couple is in love there is no obstacle and things can be worked out. Two days ago after confronting my ex-boyfriend with what's going to happen with our relationship. He hesitated to tell me at first what I was fearing. But later he finally confessed and told me he was not going to stay in this country for long and that marrying someone other than from his country and religion would not be permitted in his family. I thought I was dying right that minute, because I realized he didn't love me at all and that I had fallen in love with an illusion. What hurts is that all throughout this year, he treated me like a queen, he was very attentive, called all the time, and acted as if he did love me. He supported me emotionally in difficult situations I had to go through and I was there for him as well when he felt down. I could keep going forever about the great things we did this year and the great times we shared, but in summary I now feel used. I told him, I couldn't be with him anymore if 1) he didn't love me and 2) even if he did, his family wouldn't allow our relationship. I know customs are customs and he has to respect them. I just thought that maybe if he loved me he'd make me a small exeption. I know I have to move on and only time will ease the pain. I'll be ok again, just that right now it hurts so much I wish there was someone out there that could give me some words of encouragement, especially if he or she has gone through something similar. Thanks.
