    I know this guy and he is one of the meekest, mildest guys I ever knew. He just stepped down as an elder recently to work on his family life. I'm in shock, never would have thought him capable of this.

    Sometimes I think people who appear very meek and mild aren't really dealing with their emotions in healthy ways and then they manifest themselves in shocking violence. This seems to happen alot- JW violence. Is it because they are so stressed?

    One more reason not to screw married women.

    Frankly I find these stories not surprising since many JWs are two faced hypocrites. At the KH they cover themselves with a big white sheet

    of righteousness, what goes on in their personal lives is something quite different. This was one of the things that made myself rethink what

    I was involved in.

    I've never understood people who do crap like that. What did he hope to gain? A marriage breakup is bad enough without bringing violence into it. So he's losing his wife. Who wants to keep a cheating spouse anyway? Now he'll do jail time and probably never be allowed access to his kids again.

    On the other hand, he may only have appeared to be a mild person. I've known "mild" people who had serious anger issues that only came out behind closed doors. Maybe she had a good reason to end the marriage. The whole bit about tracking her with a GPS makes him sound like a control freak.

    The good news is the congregation will most likely keep his record a secret and he'll eventually become an elder.

    I know that sometimes people are not as they appear but this was really a stand up guy. I think he snapped personally. I'm so sad for him and his family.

    I agree with you Tweety.

    I don 't think there is any reason for a spouse to have a sexual companion outside of the marriage. If a marriage is ending then after it's over let the fornicating begin !

    but if a spouse is callous enough to disregard emotional attachments then they should not be surprised with the fallout of their impatience..
