Seriously, SD-7, have you considered that your wife may be setting you up with these elders so that she has evidence of a Dub-legal divorce?
I fail to see what proof they would have for that. I've not cheated on her or anything like that. At most she might have valid grounds for separation on the basis of 'the risk of spiritual harm' or maybe because I'm a lot unstable emotionally and therefore an imagined threat to her physical safety. But not divorce.
Kick her ass to the curb along with her cult literature and let her spiritual brothers and sisters take care of her. Maybe then she'll realize what she had, cause God knows those people are USELESS when it comes to taking care of their own.
She has actually lived with other Witnesses before; I don't doubt she could do so again, except for the likelihood that she herself will be DF'd soon as well. She'll just move back in with her mom or something, worst case. At this point, it's hard to imagine she has anywhere else to go. But the fact is, the fact she loves the organization more than me (which, if she REALLY did, we wouldn't have anything to confess in the first place, unless perhaps she too couldn't keep it zipped) does not give me a license to do her dirty. Whatever my anger may be, I still have an atom or two left of honor.
Much as I loathe them, these bastards may not be entirely evil, and certainly they're not consciously evil. I'll likely give them an opening if I mistreat her. And that, I don't need right now. But they're not going to just let us off easy. ...
Not interested in sole custody of the kid--she's not even mine, for one, and for two, she likes her mom better anyway. Once she's older, she'll side with mom even if they really did hand out Kool-Aid. I love them both and would only take them as a package deal.
If I could be a 'Cypher', I would. But I'm not. I don't see a life beyond this anyway. Don't know what the hell I'm doing no matter what. Can't even make basic decisions on my own. I've no way to learn that now. Got no one but myself to blame.
