14 A Christian woman recently experienced the trauma of divorce when her husband left her after 12 years of marriage and began a relationship with another woman. Did she notice any warning signs before the breakup? She explains: "He reached a point where he no longer prayed. He used flimsy excuses for missing Christian meetings and the preaching activity. He claimed to be either too busy or too tired to spend time with me. He would not talk to me. There was a spiritual alienation. It was such a shame. He was no longer the man I had married
Gosh, I miss the wonderful, simple way of life in the congregation.
Is your marriage on the rocks? Simple: your mate is not attending meetings.
Ergo, he/she is failing spiritually, it is JUST THAT SIMPLE
Course, maybe, the dynamics of the relationship are out of whack; one is preoccupied, or ill, or depressed and therefore unavailable emotionally. Then she/he begins to withdraw, and the mate suffers. All people need intimacy and love, so maybe an affair is the result. What is the problem? Most likely it is NOT a case of slacking, but any number of other things that happen in a marriage.
The worldview of the WT writers is so ridiculously simplistic; it would be laughable if it were not so damaging.
If your marriage is in trouble, go to counseling; it's that simple. You will be MILES ahead of where this article will take you.
