quesMental condition hidden during marriage. What can i do?

I got married in April 2014. My husband’s behavior was very strange from the very first day.We never had a normal married life.



About 4 months ago I found out that my husband has schizophrenia and this fact has been concealed from me from the very beginning. I feel cheated by my husband and also by my in laws.



My in laws never let me meet my husband before marriage and would always make up a false story. What can I do?
