Hello all, many years I have been lurking on this site. Gradually I’ve learned the real truth, gone from serving as a servant and at bethel to inactive for almost a year, barely ever wasting time going to meetings. My family is large and very active and so is my wife’s so leaving altogether is difficult.
Though it seems now that everything is about to change. My wife has decided she no longer wants to be married. Sad as it is, it’s for the best I know, she still believes in it all, I have made it clear to her what I think about the cult. We both will be happier apart. Since I will not be talking to the elders I am sure that this will expose my fade, some difficult and lonely days will be coming as my wife leaves, and my friends and family cease contact. I can’t really even imagine yet how hard it will be but I hope I can keep my head above water and start a new life, free of this cruel and sad religion. Thank you all for your many posts over the years that myself and other have used to free ourselves and know we are not alone. I hope to post more in the future and get to know some who have gone through this struggle and come out the other side.
