I really don’t know what to say except, strangely, I feel compassion for both of you for, in different ways, the joy that you were both denied by your indoctrination.

I am in America, my religion was non-denominational, but kind of like United Pentecostal. Protestant faith! My husband was the only man I was allowed to date. I was 19, and he was 39. He raped me violently the first night, and thereafter.
