    Not to marry my husband.

    LOL I did anyway and we have been married 15 years and haven't been JW's for four of those years.

    Just for starters..."you don't need to buy a house."

    Hey Loosie-

    Got the same advice we have been married 19 years both out for 7+. The funny thing is the elder giving the advice has been divorced for years. Aren't you glad we didn't listen to these crack pots?

    "You won't find happiness if you choose to be worldy"

    Look at me right now. I'm happier than ever. I've got a great wife and I'm almost done with school. I've got great "worldy" friends and non-JW family members.

    The correct advice should be "You wont find happiness if you choose to remain as a JW"

    I found true happiness after I stopped being involved with JW.

    The worst advice I ever got from an elder was to not get involved in disciplining my step-kids. It led to me being viewed as an outsider to this day. Of course when all the crap with the middle child blew up and he started to nag about me I told him to look at his mom for I was not allowed to participate in his upbringing. So maybe it was not such bad advice? Ya it was, if I had more of a hand in his raising, he may not have turned into such a dope.
