    With all the rules that we had to live under to be a good Christian it's a wonder that we aren't all neurotic basket cases like I am! Let's compile a list of transgressions and rules that we had to live by. For example:

    No rated R movies

    No Worldly friends

    Premarital Sex


  • LevelThePlayingField

    No birthdays

    No Xmas or any holiday for that matter.

    No other material for spiritually besides the Watchtower, period.

    No college

    No political opinions

  • scratchme1010

    No premarital sex

    No premarital sex

    No premarital sex

    Did I mention no premarital sex?

  • LoveUniHateExams

    No swearing (cursing)

    No masturbation

    No porn

    No facial hair (that's the weirdest, and God help the Spanish sisters)

  • pale.emperor

    In my district women weren't allowed nose piercings unless they were of Indian ethnicity.

  • blondie

    No denim skirts

    No bare legs even with sandals

    No pants for women unless working in the barn or in the field

    No makeup if you might stumble someone

    Women can clean the toilets but not fix them

    Only women do dishes and laundry (Unless you are a male Bethelite)

    Only women change diapers at the KH (no place provided for men in the restroom so brother with non-jw wife who did not come had to find some sister to do it or go out in the car and manage it somehow)

    No job that requires any level of dedication, like overtime or the occasional meeting missed.

  • LevelThePlayingField

    And no questions.

    oh yes--fornication is a sin too.

    A small joke there, eh, stan? Very small.

    This guy was a new recruit and because he was not available for marriage, the sisters stayed far away. Single sisters like to demonstrate to the available brothers how they can be a good mother.

    Finally, the brothers put in a diaper changing table. The jw fathers of diapered children still sent mom in to do the changing in the sisters restroom. They had more important duties of course.

    Some younger more modern fathers did start giving their wives a break and did it some time.

    When his daughters too old to take them in the men's room, he had to get the sisters to potty them in the women's.

    So it seems that sex is the most important rule on JWN.
