Villagegirl, I will do my best to resolve your confusion.
For- jgnat I am confused, I thought you said you were never a JW ? So you cannot be an apostate. Your husband is attending meetings, so he is NOT an apostate either. So how does your case compare???
Technically, I was never apostate either from my religion or the JW's. However, I have been accused of "apostate thinking". Hubby knows I hang out here. What I do have in common with rubadubadub is that I am in a mixed marriage. There are plenty of warnings about that in the watchtower literature. I have noted that when hubby has asked the elders for domestic advice, they have told him he made the decision to marry me. He'll either have to put up or shut up.
You never believed the WT was the "truth" right ?
You married a JW ? While he was disfellowshipped ?
Hubby was never disfellowshipped. We were together and got married while he was an active Witness but not yet approved for service.
For adultry ? He was married to a JW ?
He was married to a JW. He was guilty of adultery but he was never disfellowshipped. Both he and his wife walked away from the Kingdom Hall at the time of separation.
But he divorced her and married you jgnat ?
I met hubby ten years after he left his first wife.
But you want him to leave not only his first wife but also his religion for you ?
I want my hubby to have a rich life and to reach the full potential of who he can be. The Watchtower in our bedroom puts a strain on intimacy. The constant invitations to join him in service is a pain.
And your here to get ammunition ?
I don't treat information like bullets. I support the "unbelieving mate" community and I collect ideas and thoughts that work.
