Hey there
Someone posted "by the cultural standards applied, oral sex is not sex."
In the state of MN it is and falls right into the rape criminal charges.
I just served as a jury member on a Sexual assault with bodily injury case. We cut no slack because they had moved here from a foreign country 14 years ago. Yes their cultue is different but that is not an excuse for rape. No one is going to listen to that for a defense in our state.
Foreigner, be brave and persue justice. If nothing else please seek therapy for you.  I am glad you have members helping you locate help.
You have my support. Keep posting as everyone here cares.
Gentle Hugs.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts! It does help me! I wish more people around me would think like you guys and gals.

I will try to be brave in all of this. One step at a time to help get me through. And if I fall, I just have to get up again... like that song goes. ☺

And not letting that person beat you as far as your spirit is the best way to be.
