Two weeks ago my wife had a miscarriage at 11 weeks. It is very sad as it was to be my first child and my wife is already 39. What hurt the most though is that none of my immediate family contacted me.
I was d/f in January and did not expect to hear regularly from my parents and sister. However when I found out that my wife was pregnant I was surprised that they did not just call me to congratulate me. When my wife (who is not d/f) had a miscarriage they called her but not me. I am now really quite angry that they could not even talk to me for a minute, or send an sms or email or card just to say their condolances.
My family were always very close. To be suddenly shut out from them has shocked me, as I can not believe that they are that sort of people. I am struggling to come to terms with what sort of people my family are. What does it say about them; or is this barbaric religion so powerful that it can change a persons personality that much?
Even when I was in bethel I would call my d/f friends just to make sure they were alright. I am in shock that any person can not see through the evil that is shunning.
