I married my best friend pretty much. Not exactly a loser, but we were both unprepared for life in the real world and we had problems from the beginning. Also, if we had been allowed to have a normal sexual relationship before marriage, we probably would not have rushed in so young, had opportunities to date others, and may have realized we were better as friends instead of marriage mates.
Two of our kids were certainly adversely affected by the Small Pond in JW Land. . . . . and we've been reminded of it by one of them. . . . .Doc
