I am nearly 43 years old and grew up "in the Truth" during the '70s and '80s. I left at age 19 in 1991. I had always felt there was something not quite right about the whole thing. I was disfellowshipped and got reinstated just before I walked away and moved to a different city. I only bothered to get reinstated to talk to my parents, but they now speak to my disfellowshipped brother and sister, so I could have saved myself the trouble. I married a wonderful "worldly" man and we have been married over 20 years. Life is good on the "outside!"
