Hello All! I am new to the board, but also need to vent!
Right before my husband and I were married I was in a bad car accident and then 2 months later, my husband was almost killed by a drunk driver. The Doctor in the ER had falsely stated that my husband had been drinking and he was couseled for drinking and driving...right in the ER! Later that eveing the Dr. came back and said that his blood work showed that he had NO alcohol in his system. I knew he hadn't been drinking and driving...he isnt a big drinker to begin with anyway.
Anywho! 1 month after the accident we were to be married in the KH, 2 weeks before our wedding day the Elders pulled us into the back room for "a discussion" We knew something was up, but didnt know what...The Elder that had already accepted the request to perform the wedding decided that since our meeting attendance slipped (mind you, I now have a condition that spurs frequent mirgraines and at the time was going through PT for the injuries to my back, and my husband had been laid up for 1 month already..he was very very lucky) and he did not feel comfortable marrying us. He also said that we were not "spritually mature" to be married and that we could no longer use the KH to be married in....Nice Huh! I cried my eyes out and refused to look at them in the face...I was so angry and hurt. THEN they had the balls to ask us to "push the wedding off for another 6 months until our meeting and service picked up"...two words...FT...My father was recently diagnosed with Cancer, and my Step Dad could have dropped at any minute...I wanted them to see me walk down the aisle. They made me feel selfish and also made me feel that God would not accept our marraige... NOW I feel better It's good to vent...I am just very happy that I found a place where I can realease all these feelings and NOT have to worry about being "judged". I am looking forward to reading and sharing thoughts with all of you.
