I tried telling him again when I got home that this makes me really uncomfortable. This led to an argument and I guess I’m not his priority. He acts just as any JW does, he tried to turn it around and tell me he never opposed me being a catechist. That is a completly different setting. I go to the parish school and have a classroom full of children, I don’t go to individual homes to be with a child & his/her father.
I am very upset because he cannot see the way it’s making me feel. One more reason to not like the JWs.
Hellisreal, I think you might me right. One of my sisters-in-law (a JW) already said she wants him to divorce me, and I know this because one of my sisters-in-law told me so (a Catholic want-to-be). She also said that the JW sister will never allow me to influence my DH in any way, and the way she is, DH will listen to her. It’s like she was his mother. I mean, why else choose him of all the guys in that congregation? He’s the new guy in this congregation because we just moved, and they know he was shunned till 2 months ago. His sister is getting away w/it.
**BelFarfalla, **we were of 2 different religions when we married, but he was not a “practicing” JW. He was shunned.
**b_justb, **I know they are supposed to take someone of the same sex with them, but DH is refusing to do this because he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he takes someone.
Heathernoel, it is really hard. Thanks for the virtual hug. I really need friends…
I don’t know what to do to make him listen. He left to his meeting saying he’d be back in an hour, he didn’t really want to go because he felt bad about our argument, but he went anyway. Why is it that JWs don’t listen? Why do they always think we’re attacking them? I just don’t want my husband to be so close to a near occasion of sin, is there something wrong with that??? I know it’s wrong for a married person to go to an unmarried person’s house, especially when the spouse of that person is not comfortable with that situation. I would NEVER put him in that position.
I can’t wait for next Friday to go to Retrouvaille. I hope that helps us communicate better, because the way DH is, we really need guidance in that.
