    A few things that you should know about before marrying a Tunisian man

    Sorry for the delay in replying to your question! Yes, it is happening now - he filed several months ago without bothering to tell me or ask if i was ready and it is going through courts without me having been informed by anyone. I found out because i asked a solicitor over there to look into...

    A few things that you should know about before marrying a Tunisian man

    Sorry to put a damper on things but for me one of the most important things to be aware of when marrying a Tunisian man is that once he tires of you for whatever random reason, he can and probably will divorce you behind your back in Tunisia, no matter how long he has lived in the UK.You won't...

    NEWS: I have now had a reply from him - a very cold impersonal one-sentence email telling me i will get the paperwork soon. So he filed months back without my knowledge or permission, as uncaring and selfish as ever I see...... I asked what grounds he used for the divorce so he said he just put...

    i wish there was. The only people i know in Tunisia are his parents and sisters and although i got on with them all ( via French mainly....) of course they will have taken his side, especially with how good a liar he is so will have spun them all sorts of crap about me.

    yes , judging from what i caught sight of on his facebook page he was there just a couple of weeks ago with his fiancee. I am not sure how many times he has been there since he left me though - could be one or five , who knows. I believe he is devious enough and has enough contempt for me to do...

    i know what you mean, but i think it's about trying to salvage some dignity and having some vague say in my own divorce! I've had precious little dignity or respect in the past few years and part of me feeld I should make some sort of stand. we all know there is this false address loophole where...

    oh really, 15 months? That helps to know. When your husband walks out and says 'leave me alone, i want to start a new life' you kind of assume he will divorce you at the speed of light so that's why I didnt make the move myself back then (plus I didnt want a divorce so why should it be me who...

    Totally true, he'd accuse me sometimes of being unfaithful when he had absolutely no grounds , clearly was trying to deflect the attention from his own infidelity. I'm not on facebook , don't have a lock on my phone, nothing secretive about me at all because i'm never unfaithful, yet he doesnt...

    ok thanks Kassie it is looking indeed as if i will just have to initiate proceedings here although it is expensive. But it will be tricky claiming on what grounds seeing as how we separated 14 months ago and an advice line told me it may be too big a gap to claim unreasonable behaviour. No, i...

    yes you are right , my husband used to get jealous whenever i innocently mentioned a man had stopped me in the street and asked me out but then sometimes he would joke about it and say ' how many today' , yet when i stopped telling him when it happened, i was wrong for hiding it all from him and...

    Hello TMD - no, unfortunately I do not know anyone in Tunisia other than his family and that is obviously a no-go.

    Hello Kassie - thank you, maybe i wont bother with the Embassy then . Sorry , did you mean a lawyer in the Uk or in Tunisia ? I have no idea what you mean by 'how to PM me' !

    Ok so i have just come off the phone from a legal advice line for the 2nd time and nobody can help me. The guy told me to phone the Tunisian Embassy in London to see if they can advise how I can find out if i have been divorced without my consent or knowledge in Tunisia. Does anyone know if the...

    Thank you Essem . The sad thing is that he did have some wonderful qualities as a husband , otherwise i would never have tried so hard to stay married. But he just seemed to be scouting for my replacement quite often, i guess a younger woman. One of the things he said to me as he left was '...

    There is a 19 year age gap between my husband and I. I know how that looks on paper, but because I look about 12-15 years younger (my true age of 50 genuinely shocks people) and he looks several years older than he is, nobody ever thought there was an age gap so we didn't look like your typical...

    heart broken

    Bunny girl , it was reading your post tonight that inspired me to write about my own situation on here - until then i was ashamed to admit everything i had put up with. We all have different tolerance levels, i forgave my husband repeated infidelity that other wives would never have forgiven...

    thank you Jane, and you made me chuckle with your last few words! I promise the only time i have contacted him in a year is last week, only to try and get him to have the decency to tell me what is happening divorce-wise. No reply as yet so i am not going to try again.

    yes of course we spoke about children before marrying, doesnt everyone ? When he came back the last time i asked him repeatedly over that 4 months of ' dating' if he was sure and he aways said yes and that we would deal with the chidren issue together, such as adoption or surrogacy. He just...
