I have tried my best to resolve my disputes with my wife but unfortunately at the end we both are reached on a point that we could not live together for a longer period and we must have to take a decision so we decided to separate from each other. Of course it was a very difficult situation but we have taken a decision for the best interest of my family and single daughter, who is just five years old. After the end of our marriage life our daughter would be our first priority.
