Salam Alaikum,
I have been married at a Muslim brother since January 2016. We had an Islamic marriage but I am not Muslim I am Christian and did not convert. I separated from my husband in July 2018 due to him being cruel and abusive ( we have 1 child together). I have had no contact or communication with him in 10 months. I am currently talking to another Muslim brother who is interested in courting me but feels  uncomfortable since I told him I am married. He want to know the status of my marriage and where things stand before he moves forward. Please let me know the status of my marriage since we have not gotten legally or islamically divorced but we have not spoken in 10 months.
