As the conventions started today in my home state, I can't help but think of the hundreds of JW young people that I know who are still single, esp those over 25. It's really sad that for so many this is their ONLY chance of finding somebody to date. Some that I know have even crossed over into their 30's, and they go year after year, always talking about the possibility of meeting someone special.
The organization literally controls their minds, and dating and marriage to a non-JW is out of the question. It's so sad that so many have missed out on their life's dreams of having a family and companionship.
Especially tragic is if some of these "awaken" and realize that WT has robbed them of a lifetime of possible happiness.
The only word I can come up with is SAD. What other way can it be described? The things this organization has done to people is unforgivable.
