Original transcript of interview with Yasmine, who has recently got married. This was an arranged marriage, in line with her religious and cultural family background. This has been a very stressful and difficult time for her, largely due to her lack of sex education, especially around contraception. Sexuality is not something she can talk to her parents about, but she has spoken to her older sister and a friend. Yasmine is now on the pill, which her husband had advised her to use, though she isn't really enjoying the sexual aspects of their relationship. She would like a career, but her husband expects her to stay at home, in part to maintain respectability - she doesn't have much freedom anymore.
