My parents converted to Islam when I was 12 so I've known another life but I loved it at first, it's peaceful and a lovely way to live but it's difficult for me who's known different. I had what you could call an arranged marriage to a man originally from the middle east. Most people find that shocking but it was what my parents and I agreed on, I had just turned 17 when I got married and was still in education which I stayed in until 18. I met my husband around 7-8 times before we were married and I talked to him ALOT via email - he's a lovely man and I do love him, there's just no spark... I agreed to the marriage because that was how it was done, all my friends were entering in the same process, but I guess some could say I jumped into it too quickly, I got VERY excited!
Well anyway... I feel I've lost faith in the religion and in myself really. I'm 19 now and have 2 children who I adore and a husband who adores me but I can't find myself loving him. I went to my mother and she told me to be grateful for what I have and I AM but there's just something missing.
Is there any way I can do anything about this? My friends from school are all out having their first loves and breaking up and being carefree and I guess I expected some sort of feelings.
Please don't bash me, I honestly love my family but there's no spark there.
