Jehovah's Witnesses are followers of a specific denomination of Christianity. Believing that Armageddon is coming to separate believers from non-believers, Witnesses spend much of their time knocking on doors to preach their beliefs to others. When it comes to relationships within this faith, certain dating rules apply. Baptized believers are expected to follow the moral code outlined by church elders. Failure to do so may result in expulsion and shunning by the church.
They are super strict. Yo You writing a book? I want 1st dibs on that. Your down to earth and accurate. I love reading about JW life.
Sep 18, Courtship and Marriage. Posted on September 18, by scottleblog. JWs live by a very strict moral code, rather Puritanical in nature, that forbids any type of sexual contact between people who are not married to each other. As a result JWs do not engage in what most non-JWs would consider normal dating. Dating includes any social activity in which two people focus romantic interest on each other. It can take place in a group or in private, in the open or in secret, and in person, over the phone, or by text message. Jehovah's Witnesses view dating, not as recreation, but as a . Dating vs. Courtship. Within the Jehovah's Witness faith and some other Christian faiths, courtship is preferred over dating. Courtship is dating someone with the intention to marry. Because of this, it is not recommended for people to date until they are of marrying age, and then they should only date someone who shares their faith, values and.
Its like reading my bio over and over again. Good luck oh I mean good fortune on that book. I actually got married to a JW sister because I got tired of running. I mean even Pioneer sisters, then when you back out finding out that maybe your not compatable they would would rat you out to the elders and you know what follows. Hear ya next week peace. We were not ignorant! We were brainwashed!
This will always be part of my historybut it no longer defines me!
These people were all I knew, all I was permitted to associate with, the people I was required to answer to at ALL times for ALL my actions and thoughts, and the people who abused and degraded me. I felt that I truly was an alien. Maybe it is a life that works for some people. I look forward to reading your posts every week as they provide a healthy cathartic release for me.
Thank you. I recall that way back in the 60s it was nothing like so bad as it was later to become. During the summer of 64 it was rumoured that Bro Knorr had said - in a talk, I think - that just because a couple were engaged to be married it did not mean they were free to hold hands.
It would have been a couple of years after that when, during a Wt study, the father of my former girlfriend made a comment about how grateful they all were for the wonderful provision of chaperoning. Since then they seem to have become as terrified of sex as they are of demons.
Jehovah's Witnesses Sexuality And Dating - EX JW
Except for the pedophiles! How many little 12 yr. When I was 16 I had a 19 year old boyfriend, we were both jws. Hung out with his parents alot! One time we dared to hold hands at a meeting, which was met by a disapproving head shake by his mother, and she motioned us to stop. How ridiculous. He ended up pressuring me into sex. I would just like to say that it is quite obvious that you are no longer a Witness.
Most of the things you say here are bull. Stop all this bullshit lies of yours and get a hobby hoe! Things have changed drastically or you have your head in the ground! I was a JW for 30 years.
My children were instructed very plainly by elders that to associate with non JW was associating with worldly people, bad association. Movies were to be G rated only, anything else was forbidden. To go to ANY school dances or sports games was forbidden. My daughter did country clogging dancing and was told she must give it up. There is NO close contact in that type of dancing.

We were told that big weddings were worldly and the money was better spent donating to the contribution boxes. The elders had to ok everything in my daughters wedding, even the music. A wedding planner was unheard of unless it was sisters helping you.

Jehovah's Witness Dating Rules
I was brainwashed with the best of them. My father was very abusive, and got away with it for many years.
I was told that I was very disrespectful, and I was lying.
The abuse continued until I left at I remember though, how controlling the elders were in our congregation. Even after I left the organization I was harassed by the elders. I got married to someone on the outside, and moved away. No wedding, not nothing, just met someone and got married. He was my escape. They were relentless. I have not had any contact with my father for years. Which actually is fine by me!
Pros and cons of doing so? Long story short he is so passionate and open about sex that he amazed me every single day. He is aware that is not acting right but I believe his carnal desires are stronger than his beliefs, so to be honest it is kind of a hypocritical situation. But whom am I to complain?
I love to make him question his beliefs. I know I sound like a horrible person but sometimes he acts so uptight. Cheyenne, Do you want to be treated like dirt? Do you believe that women have no value?
Do you really want the elders of a church dictating your families every move? Maybe I doubt maybe not only Jehovah knows.
