People who base their relationship choices strictly on religious preferences, don't know much about being friends in the first place, you can't lose something you never had.
Welcome, take off your shoes and settle in, and bring the hubby --
Hi and welcome!
Hello, Jenny. I am also new here. It is amazing the feeling of liberation one experiences when casting aside religious fetters. Just remember that family members or friends who will love and accept you only so long as you conform to their belief structures are not are not truly loving and accepting. Those who stick by you no matter what you do, say or believe - those are your true friends. You should cherish them, because they are few and far between. Congratulations on making an informed decision and walking away from what you were taught to believe because it didn't feel right.
Best wishes for the future,
Welcome to TA Jenny.
The intro you have done is just perfect, you need not add to it.
