"When I was just starting to question my Mormon beliefs, I married a Mormon girl.  It was the biggest mistake of my life and caused me the most mental anguish in my life."

"Well she's started to, a little, I mean it won't necessarily estrange them, but it's a possibility, It's not easy, you're right, thanks."

Autumn replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"She does have virtue, she's been raised JW and hasn't really had a push to question her views before. To her credit when I did start asking the questions she couldn't answer, she did accept that parts of her faith made no sense and…"

"There is a chance that she starts to find out what she is, what she wants, what she believes or not, but that will probably estrange her family - quite a painful process. Perhaps she'll take your views for that's the easy…"

"For what its worth, I've been in very similar situation. I understand how difficult it can be to see from the inside out. Maybe this is one reason hindsight is 20/20 ha! It is almost certain that you are exposing her to ideas she's never…"

"She does care about her beliefs, but she's prepared to re-assess them, for me, which I'm more than happy to do for her"

Autumn replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"She's not trying to change me, though, she's saying she'd prefer me to be a JW but she's never tried to make me, her and I decided to just talk it through and decide what we both believe, but suddenly her family started to stop…"

Čenek Sekavec replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"If she doesn't care about her beliefs then she has no moral character. Get out! This is a person capable of all sorts of unpleasant things."

Autumn replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"She has said that if I don't convert, she'll end up being inevitably drawn away from her religion, and she seems okay with whatever religious belief she holds as long as we're together, I'm grateful for the advice but I'm…"

Joan Denoo replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"Run, don't walk, away from this relationship. Young people tend to think with their hormones. Older people tend to think with their brains. Imagine yourself 25 years from now. If she is still religious, and you are not, "

"When someone tries to change you from the start of a relation, there's no hope of a tolerable future together. Get out a.s.a.p."

"She lied to you from the beginning. That isn't a good augur for longevity in a relationship. :("

Grinning Cat replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"Assume she'll remain religious and remain a JW, thus strongly believing that you need to become one too. Decide based on that. If it were me it would be a deal-breaker."

Michael Penn replied to Autumn's discussion Jehovah's Witnesses seducing people to convert them?
"I seriously doubt that the young lady is ready to leave her religion and family for you, or if she is even capable of doing so. Her age and maturity is a factor here and so is yours. I can remember being 17 and so upset over losing a girlfriend that…"
