I have a very important question. Three years ago my father had forced me into marriage with man whom I do not like. I was fortressed in home for over a month and nobody would see me until the day they brought the man and forced the marriage upon me. Everything was against my will God truly knows that. After marriage we did not establish marital relationship. I think God was with me all the while until I availed the chance to escape from him. It has been three years since I escaped from him.
I have developed liking for a Muslim boy and we want to be married. Can we enter into this marriage contract without obtaining divorce from my husband? This I ask because we have not been married in the true sense of the relationship and it was forced upon me at the first place and I never received anything from him not the dowry or any properties not even a wedding ring. I have fear of upon my life from that man.
