Thank you guys...all your posts are very much helping me to see where I need to get to personally in order to have any hope for my marriage. I did not get the truth until I met hubby at 20 yrs old. He grew up, fell away, and came back with me...(he witnessed to me). I think now that he married me becuz that's what you do when you date someone...you get married becuz of the truth. I would have married him regardless of the religion or not. (I guess that speaks volumes for my lack of jw'ness)
Do you guys think that someone who grew up a JW can overcome their childhood even though they have never known anything else? Hubby keeps saying to me that he has no choices.......although he has not gone to anything(meetings, etc) in 3 months. I wonder if he will see the value in being married? He keeps saying now that "you might as well go out in the world and DO ANYTHING cuz your'e dead at Armaggedon" That is why we are separated maritally. He figures....what the *%()*)_$!!!
However, because I did not grow up in it.... I saw and see the VALUE of a marriage and that committment. Be honest with me guys and hit me straight in the bean......
What are my chances of having a normal, healthy, loving marriage with an x-jw who was raised in it with that attitude? Hubby has always looked at truth as holding him back....I'm not sure who his pre-cult self is??? I am working on myself right now....but am really concerned about my chances of my current fantasy that he will grow out of this crap and see the other side?
Thank you for your help guys......I for once feel like I can talk before someone telling me I have an attitude prob.
