You can read his review and additional information at: Feel free to comment on the show if you have seen it.Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness (JW) can warp and twist a young person’s mind about many activities, sex in particular. Sitting in the Kingdom Hall as a young child, I would hear talks about sex, but they were, for the most part, warnings about what not to do—what was moral and what was not— but mostly not. So I promised myself that as soon I found out what the heck they were, I would never do them.That version was mailed or sent by carrier to a rather large group of readers and Facebook friends who […] The Watchtower Society’s website, JW.org, now claims that “Those who were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses but no longer preach to others, perhaps even drifting away from association with fellow believers, are not shunned.” [LINK] This is an amazing statement.
I would think: Okay, those things are wrong, but I don’t even know what those wrong things are.
Wifely dues were something the husband wanted but the wife didn’t particularly like.
I also heard from the platform and from people at the Hall how it was not good for a man to be alone; that he needed a wife to satisfy his sexual needs.
I divorced my husband for spousal abuse at the age of twenty-two. I still had the weird idea, despite the JW belief that fornication is wrong, that dating = sex. To be honest, it was overwhelming and I had no idea where to start.
That created other problems, which forced me to leave the so-called “truth.” After getting over the “All men are evil and must be destroyed” depression, I jumped full throttle into the “dating pool.” I put “dating” in quotations, because as ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses know, JWs don’t really “date.” Dating leads to sex, therefore it’s better to get married as soon as possible, because Needless to say, I didn’t know what I was doing. You see, my idea of the “love” men have for women, wasn’t the same kind of “love” women feel for men. While whining to a friend about dating, it occurred to me that I didn’t know how to . I was insecure – feeling that if I wasn’t with another person, people would think there was something wrong with me – that it was better for me to be with someone than it was to be single—a weird self-image. “Either you’re going to move to the solution or you are going to shut the hell up, because I have better things to do with my time.” I wanted help, so I decided to move to the solution.
