WitnessMyFury: I am 5 years out in my fade and yes i have my family, but all my JW "friends" dropped me. BUT, here's the but, if i do anything not approved by watchtower even now i can be disfellowshipped still and then lose my family.
Steve2: They change the way they treat you, but don't call it shunning - but that's exsctly what it is.
That has been our experience too. Some of the more "devout" family have cooled their contact with us too, but we are not shunned. I think it helps immensely that they feel that we were "wronged" by our local BOE in how they dealed with our situation.
We're "waiting on Jehovah".
