Your story is soo much like mine except i stuffed it up. I chose the witness boy,(even thought the "worldly guy" wanted to marry me) and lived in a bad relationship for 10 years. Cought up with the "worldly guy" a while ago all too late, he's married now with two kids. I still love him to this day, 10 years of separation did not make out love fade.
You were right to make the life choices you did, when it's right it's right regardless of religion and what outr parents say.
Good for you going with your heart and doing what you knew was right. It's gotta have taken guts.
