I completely understand the tie that is there. His family is actually pretty cool until any of this $hi, i mean crap comes up. His mother has really come around but always seems to have a hidden agenda, go figure. He husband supports me in all that i and we do. It's just this great big elephant steps into the room every so often.
There are clues everywhere. ( okay that was creepy) At a funeral, he was suprised that someone said Jehovah and they were not a witness. He was also suprised that my mother or family for that matter never has questioned his faith. He was suprised at my fathers' knowledge of the bible. He was suprised that I give my mother flowers on my birthday because of all the sacrifices she has made for me to be able to be where i am today and that i am thankful for her wonderful gift of friendship. He was suprised that he is loved and hugged and kissed by my family as if he has always been there.
Again, this man is wonderful, and i can actually say that after almost 3 years of marriage and total 5 year history. He tried to tell me again on that faithful night that it was due to the fact that he was raised a witness that he didn't hit me, cheat on me, that he didn't run with a rough crowd. I politely explained that that was all due to the fact that he was a good person and had a good raising. Oh well...the journey continues.
