Well it's very close.... I knew this would kinda happen at some point in my life.... still you only realise the full extent of the situation when you are facing it.
I never was a 'hard core' JW and all of the 'secret' boyfriends I've had were non-JWs. Present one included. Except now, we have decided to get married and I have the most unpleasant task ahead of me.
1) I'm Indian, so dating isn't really accepted as the norm and most parents are very conservative.
2) My mum is a JW and I was raised as one (though I am an atheist now, but she doesn't know this!!), so dating isn't really accepted as the norm and most JWs are very conservative.
I have absolutely NO idea how I am going to break the news to my mum:-
I have a boyfriend *WHAT??* We have been dating for about three years *WHAT??* He's caucasian *WHAT??* He's 14 years older than me *WHAT???* and..... he's not a JW *insert BLOOD CURDLING SCREAM* lol
This of course will lead to more questions and the truth of me not wanting to associate with the org anymore will come out.
I have a feeling mummy dearest will also want to know if I have 'defiled' myself with fornication
Then she will rant and rave about how satan has swallowed me up and now I have turned my back on jehovah blah blah... you know the spiel...
Anyone had a similar situation? Do I bring up the topic while we are sitting around wondering when to next vaccinate the dogs? By the way mum, I have boyfriend who is not a JW and we have decided to get married.
