Are the Elders harder on Women

    The majority of the harassment seems to focus on women and unbaptized mates.

    Do men get the same amount of crap for wandering off the reservation that women get or does it really not matter because options aren’t so slim. i.e women to men ratio

    About five years ago we had a women in the hall commit suicide. She came from a very devout JW family and she was Sally plain and tall. Nice women but it just broke her heart she had no husband or children. I think the no children part really killed her inside. Of course leaving the reservation for a mate wasn’t an option. She was 46 when she did it.
