A large proportion of the ex JWs I know and stay in contact with are pretty much down and out.
I stay in contact with 4 from my past.
Out of the 4:
3 of them are LONG term unemployed.
3 of those have psychiatric problems.
2 of them dont have a stable relationship.
Only 1 of them is a reasonable financial success.
My perception of the ex dub world is one of destroyed lives and, too a large degree, hopelessness.I base this perception on those Ex dubs I know. Course, they are all HARD CORE apostates. people with big issues with the WT.
Is my perception wrong?
Also, a lady pointed out to me that her ex dub hubby lives in a fantasy world, obsessing over internet fantasy, and that he had no interest in the reality of marriage, responsibility and family.
It occurred to me that these same people I know are like that too.
Obsessed with magic, ufos, and internet chat sights to the detriment of real world activities.
Have I just accessed a bad cross sample?
Do ex dubs have a problem integrating into harsh reality?
Curious as to your opinions.
