I've been with someone for over ten years. Sounds like a long time to be engaged, but we were perfectly happy with the arrangement, knowing that some of the circumstances in each of our lives needed to be worked out before we could marry. One day she told me that she wanted to investigate the JWs. I didn't have a problem with it because she said she was only looking into it. Well, it's been about two years of investigation and now she says that she can't talk to or see me.
When I asked her questions about what she believes she always said "I know I saw it in the Bible somewhere". If there was something she couldn't explain, she would say "I have to ask the sister". In our final conversation I asked her if she's read the Bible yet. She said that she read part of the Old Testament.
The breaking off of the contact happened within a three-week period. I can't understand how she could go from being deeply in love with me for all those years to abruptly ending the relationship. What's really shocking to me is that she hasn't even read the Bible, yet she's committed enough to the beliefs and advice of the JWs to go against her love for me.
One of the last things she said was "I feel like I will always love you". I am totally heart broken and depressed by it all.
Does anyone have any advice? Is this standard procedure for people preparing to get baptised and become a JW?
