We are totally shunned, and are not df'd or da'd. But we were very prominent, and the rumor mill was rampant about our being apostates. I am always smiling and friendly when I see dubs, but they act like I am invisible. I have one friend, who still calls me all the time, and we even go places together. Her disclaimer to everyone who is critical, is that nothing was ever announced, and I don't talk about the dubs to her.........which isn't really true, but who would know?
We assume that because we were so well known, that we are being made examples of. Princess and her family are shunned too, but her husband was also prominent, and they are related to us, so we think that is the reason.
