I am new here. I have recently left Islam in my mind and heart, but as of yet I haven't come out to my family. I converted to Islam 20 years ago when I was 18, married, have a decent marriage, and now 5 children. I would love to announce to everyone that I am no longer Muslim, but I am worried that if I did my husband would divorce me and take my children. (The youngest is only a baby). My husband is a good guy overall, but for this one unfortunate aspect. I figure I can live a lie for a while, until my baby is older. In the meantime I am looking for ex-Muslims who understand where I'm coming from, that I love my family and my muslim friends( who don't yet know my dark secret), and that I reject Islam. (I wrote it out in my journal that I rejected the Islamic faith and signed my name to it. It felt great).
Other than that... I love to write fiction, I am learning German, I have a BS in Biology (which started my questioning and doubting 15 years ago--I tried every excuse I could to reconcile Islam and reality), and I am learning to play guitar. And I am very grateful to have found this place.
