    congrats on leaving abusive relationships behind and on starting new wholesome ones

    After asking the elders for help, they told me I should stay with him. Intuitively I knew that was not a smart move so I left both the religion and the husband. Both were bad influences in my life.

    Welcome to the board!

    That quote above is a classic, BTW.

    Welcome also! So glad you have been able to move on to a positive, productive life. So glad you have been willing to read books to identify falsehoods there and the negative controlling spirit in the JW organization. Do you still have JW family?

    Pad yourself on the back for exercising your god given ability to think.

    Welcome! The more exjws you get to know, you'll find that many were battered spouses. I used to think it was just women who were victims, but that's not the case. And since abusers are also manipulators, (much like the Watchtower), they almost always remain in good standing with the organization.

    I'm glad to hear that you got out and made a good life for yourself. Is your drug addict/dealing ex-husband still in? Does your family shun you? My ex is crazy as a bed bug, but he can associate with my mom anytime he so desires. My mom has shunned me for 23 years and running. I say, "Good riddance to bad rubbish!"

    Sounds like you have a good head on your sholders.. Wise decision to dump both. Welcome Aboard!
