Secretly Married to a Muslim Female
This post is not meant to cause any disrespect, however I am seeking any all help that can be provided. Please do not shy away from your comments and be as honest as possible. I am an american male, raised christian, and my wife is Muslim. We have known each other for over 7 years and got married when she was here visiting. We lived together for a little over two years after marrying, got her a green card, and she returned home to help take her of her mom due to family issues.
I have to admit I know very little about the Muslim religion and culture, so that's why the current situation has been hard to believe and take but I've always known that this may be an issue. A few days ago, my wife told her mom about me and where I am from. She did not disclose any information about my religion, our marriage, or personality; however, her mother immediately stated to her that she was unwilling to approve of me even being a boyfriend to her, let alone a husband.
I was hoping that the individuals here would be able to give me some advice on how to proceed. I love my wife with every part of my being and do not want any harm to come to her, nor do I want her to lose her family because of me as well. Through out our relationship my wife and I have talked about me converting to Islam, asking forgiveness, and hopeful become an individual her family would accept. However, due to the recent response from her mom, my wife is now talking of leaving me as to not ruin the relationship with her family.
I am completely at a loss here, I have never really had a huge connection with my current religion and I am willing to convert, move to her country, and repent but even after bringing this to my wife she states that her family will still never accept me due to the fact that I am not Arab or Turkish.
I do realize the error in our actions, but I am here looking for any help that I can get. Whether your comments are positive or negative all thoughts are welcome.
