From what I gather from this forum a large percentage of young JWs leave the org and never return because they find it too uninspiring and unprofitable and they came to believe that they can have a better more fulfilling life outside.
New Generation of JW's?
I was actually DF'd over twenty years ago. Since then, most of my family has just considered me to be wordly instead of DF'd. A sister came by the hotel at which I work last week to place some back issues..I mentioned this to her and she said that most of the brothers feel the same way. That the longer you are out, the less it matters.
