    I would bet a lot would think it an honor. I am sure some of those old farts have partaken of the young girls at bethal. Its just the odds playing out. Even his esteemed pile of shit CT Russell had a mistress.

    I've always felt it"s the woman's choice whom she marries,

    Just FYI. Someone told me that Mark Sanderson was engaged many years ago. He is 52 and never married. Can someone interview him how come he never got married or would he be interested to be married one day? I doubt it!

    Eeewwwww. I think people should marry if they are truly in love..are friends and have that meeting of the minds...have the right chemistry and are adults and self sufficient. No one should be deciding who married who except the two people involved in the relationship.

    I find the idea of dub parents trying to score brownie points by arranging an ill suited marriage is heinous and revolting.

    Are you sure about that?

    Let's face it there is not much choice in the admonition to "only marry in the Lord."

    That combined with the fact that the only way for a woman to survive with any respectability in the borg is to marry an appointed man. If women were able to "reach out" and form a career as a JW as an MS, elder etc then there would be a lot more single brothers.

    The three of us ( my brother, my sister and me) got married in the lord. My brother left his wife when leaving the cult. I left my wife as soon as I got out, and my sister got rid of her husband. Why?

    There is very little to choose in the jw marriage market.

    Maybe he's gay and in the closet.

    It's not like there isn't a GB precedent.

    I understand Mark changed his last name to Handerson and has a girlfriend named Palmala. They said he keeps her at his side constantly.
