Is it better to fade or just move on with your life? I have been fading for over a year because most of my close family is still in. I would never meet with the elders or write a letter to quit. That to me is playing by their rules. But I find that I can not live the life I want to and am unable to move on with my life. I am still playing by their rules to keep my family. My husband knows I want out and we still love each other. But he taunts me with the fact that I can't find "anything better." I still believe in the Bible, but not the JW interpretation. I long for a church where I can worship with others-not sales meetings at the kingdon hall.
You have probably talked about this before, but I still would appreciate any responses from those who have done it either way. Would you have done it differently if you could go back? What are the benefits and pitfalls from your experience?
