← Women & Islam: The rise and rise of the convert

Stevehill's Avatar Jump to comment 85 by Stevehill

Can't add much to the above. The daughter of a very good (devout Catholic!) friend of mine married a Muslim and converted. She's not daft: she was in her mid-20s, with a masters degree. It was probably the lure of the exotic, combined with a flight from the stifling orthodoxy of her parents' faith - to which they had incidentally converted as adults.

She moved into her in-laws' house, as one does.

The marriage was over in 6 months.

She's no longer a Muslim.
