Yeah I read this article. It isn't a study article, just one of the fillers. Sad to say there use to be a time when I believed what was said in such articles, and tried to allign my attititude to fit the mold. Now I question if the woman in the picture is really "Carmen and " if any "Carmen" actually said those words. The writing of the WT is so black and white it is sickening. I look back at all the single "sisters" I knew past the age of 25 in the organization, and I can't think of one that was happy about being single. And I'm not saying marriage would have made them happy, but I do think that being able to date without the pressure of marriage would have done a lot more for their happiness than being alone. I used to also have no doubt that marrying only another JW would be the best thing, but now I realize it's not because the couple could serve Jehovah happily together, but rather, its basically because it is the marriage or the religion that comes first - to serious JWs its the religion, to others, its the marriage.
This article is just futher shame material to be used against any JW woman/man who feels a better connection with a non-JW. And sadly, it something that will be referenced by others when any single person is feeling lonely - just more "trust in Jehovah" BS, along with the false promise of having many "spiritual mothers, fathers, and siblings" in the organizaiton.
