sigh... my parents want me to go to the elders 'cause my husband and i have seperated.
they are astonished that i haven't told them yet.
"what happened to you?"
"you've spoken to the elders before when you had to be reproved. what's holding you back now?
"don't you trust the elders?"
"jehovah has chosen these men as guardians in the congregation..."
needless to say, my replies were getting more and more "apostate-like",
okay, no doubt you are already asking "why are you, as an adult, bound by what your parents (who live an ocean away)say, or care?" and the answer is because i don't want them to know my true feelings about this org. i don't want them to know that i haven't even been to a meeting in 2 months. i don't want them to know that i am agnostic. that i'm not even sure a god exists. it would KILL them. they are already losing sleep over me...
should i just call up some elder and simply state "just wanted to advise you that my husband and i have seperated. i have grounds for legal and scriptural divorce. thanks and have a good day."
should i keep the charade going with my parents... unfortunately, my dad has some elders phone #, so there is always the chance he'll call on my behalf, and THEN the shit will just fly...
