I'm getting married in a few weeks to the man that was disfellowshipped with me for 'committing adultery in our hearts"
We have been together for 5 years and have a wonderful and warm relationship, no fear or guilt. The only blimp on the horizon is his family, some of whom are maniacs when it comes to the letter of the law. They have tried to play mind games with us and keep us apart. When we told them of our impending marriage they went mental and put us under terrible strain, we have weathered it and dealt with the police, which they sent round to us accusing us of 'dirty phone calls' of course it wasn't true but it was an attempt to upset us. They said they were coming to the wedding but then said to my boyfriend that they weren't because unless he came back then he was as good as dead and as he would die at Armageddon what was the point of attaching themselves to a dead person ??
My question is this...in the face of such emotional cruelty how do we rise above it ?? How do we constantly maintain our dignity ? I feel that such an injustice is being carried out and constant aspertion are being cast on our character within our local community. I'm beginning to dread my wedding day as only one member of his family are coming...my heart hurts for my partner.
