Wife fully awake.

    I learned this past week that my wife is now awake.

    what did it? I just shared the PBS Newshour segment with her with no comment other than something along the lines of, "JW story on PBS."

    She is furious at the arrogance of these men.

    Thats what happens when you get a momma angry!

    We are trying to figure out where to go from here. I told her about the support I've found on this forum and will be introducing it to her.

    Cappytan - you must be doing the happy dance right about now!

    Good thing you married a Mama Bear.

    That's truly wonderful news. Good for her. Yay girl power!

    I wish more women would wake up.

    Oh and she is also 100% aware of how apostate I am now. And she's okay with it.

    I have to admit that this big guy cried a little when I spilled all of my feelings and she didn't bat an eye and said she was sticking with me.

    I know how lucky I am. I hope for every dude out there waiting for his wife to wake up gets to someday experience this feeling.

    P.S. If it weren't for cognitive therapy, I may never have opened up to her like I did. I'll always be grateful to my therapist for that.

    I am incredibly happy for you. Many heres husband or wife is completely the opposite. I too felt incredibly happy to find out my wife was supportive and loved me more than the religion.

    it is a whole new freedom. Now you can do what you need to as a team. Remember doubt will creep up on her. Just stay the course, and her own personal journey may not be anything like yours. (my wife had her own things to work out). So be patient still.
