Ex jehovah witness dating in va
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.
Men who remained single too long may not function properly and women needed to be available for marriage to the single brothers; that it was “selfish for a woman to stay alone when there were brothers available.” The only exceptions were for women who “pioneered” full-time.
This misinformation about sex didn’t mute my interest in it, but it warped and twisted my understanding of a male/female relationship. I was finally entering the “kindergarten stage” of dating and learning about relationships, setting boundaries, and valuing myself as something more than just a twenty-eight year old orifice.
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.
I'm actually astonished at many of their beliefs, and you're right, ever since the problem arose with people leaving the JW's because none of their "predictions" came true, they started this disfellowshipping thing.
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.
Masturbation was wrong, mutual masturbation was wrong, and both oral and anal sex were wrong. As I grew up, I came to understand what sex is really all about, according to Watchtower teachings. Well yes, but I also learned that sex was something that married couples do or “due”, as in “paying your dues”.
