As I learn and explore migration marriages, it is vain to see the pattern of harm the woman usually face and have to endure for a choice they had made for the better, but in some cases, it is not so nice for them at all.

Migrants often struggle the hardest in trying to fit in and belong to their new homes of marriage.
