After a few months of lurking I decided to register.
Was raised a dub all my life . . .got married at 19 (BIGGG Mistake) because as you know "dating is only for marriage" (obviously not for trying to get to know someone better) and was married 11 months after I met my ex-husband. I felt a lot of pressure from both families to get married. After about 3 weeks of marriage I knew I made a huge mistake but what do I do? How do I get out of this shitty marriage? I did what I had to do . .I left.
I've been disfellowshipped for about 10 years now. None of my family speaks to me (except one sister, but as long as I don't tell anyone we talk). I have a daughter that my parents have never seen. It hurts me that they would choose religion over me. I was also molested by my MS brother-in-law. The "good news" is that my parents with speak to him and eat a meal with him because he was "sorry" (sorry he got told on) but they won't speak to me.
It's all good though . .I am currently engaged to a WONDERFUL man who loves me for who I am. For the first time in my life I am not afraid of getting zapped by a lightening bolt for doing something "bad" (sex before marriage, celebrating birthdays, Christmas).
I LOVE LIFE NOW!!!
