    I am sure my life would have been different if I was never a JW, the only way to know how my life would be different is go back to the past and start over, that is not possible. We have to move on!

    Yes, my life had been very different, both positive and negative. The positive is that I met my wife there, I love her very much, so in this sence I`m glad that I grew up in this evil cult. Other than this it has been mostly bad for me.

    I would got more and better education earlier and I belive I would have been a more social and outgoing person.

    In a way being a jw when younger, worked for my benefit. My father was a pedophile and without the restraint of no murder and trying other ways to protect myself (which worked), I would have killed both my parents. I'm glad that my bible understanding prevented that. I would still be in prison.

    Ouch Blondie, but a positive thought.....I think most including me can only see the negative, and there is a lot of it. HOWEVER....if you did the deed young enough and under the right circumstances....for sure you would have been released at 18................sorry about your parents..................oompa

    oompa, even for a "right" reason, it would have scarred me for a long time. I worked with teenagers that had killed their parents and saw what it did to them. I was glad that I found a less violent way to protect myself and my siblings.

    I would be a different man. I would have had sex before getting married, no wait I had that when I was 14....

    I would have smoked pot and drank like a fish, no wait I did that too.....

    I would have married the girl I fell in love with in 10th grade, Ya I think I would have. My folks hated her and I was not allowed to even see her. We got together anyways, but between my jw parents and her Roman Catholic parents we were doomed. I am married now to a lovely woman but I still have the other one in my heart.

    Oh, and I would have joined the US Navy, retired from there a couple of years ago and now be in civil service working on a second pension.
