Hi, iv'e been a regular observer on this site for a while and would be very grateful for input from witnessess and non-witnessess.
ti widll try keep it brief to avoid too much reading!
soim orsed wih two children 14&10 who i see regularly.h
she is gdivorsed twice, 1st witness & 2nd non-witness
i have bheen in a relationship for 5 years with a non-active witness lady who still ssays she b ieves the 'truth' but only has attended meetings once a year for the memorial. we have a fantastic relationship and i have never known her to be fully attending meetings. she is getting to an age where she wants to have a child, im very concerned as she says she may go back one day to her faith, i would not want my child to be brought as a witness and have asked she not take them until they have a mind of their own maybe aged 14, she wont agree to this although she has said she does not want to bring them up as a witness.
im concerned that because she still believes she will go back at some point and she would take our child, im not very positive about jw faith as in my opinion its very controliing and is extreme in its views, xmas,birthdays etc not celebrated and the blood issues but most of all i would not want my child to be taught about armageddon, it would just frighten them into being a witness as they would not want to die.
i must add thought that she has said she would let me celebrate xmas and birthdays with them, although she would not want them to do halloween. also she is not sure about a school nativity as apparently its not accurate, but in my eyes its just a forst little acting role and a bit of fun to us non-religious folk!
im just really worried that i dont feel as though i know how my life will plan out not knowing if she will go back
i have been through enough with my previous marriage, just want be sure, she does not like talking about her faith and it worries me that she wont communicate when we are married and have achild and it would be harder at this point.
id be very grateful for any help as im 38 & shes 35 its taken over our lives worrying about best step forward please help.
