Restricting your partner’s spiritual growth (by losing faith / wanting to leave he religion etc) is also grounds for separation.One part of this story I find a bit disturbing and in some way lends weight to something untoward happening is that JW only permit divorce if adultery has been involved - this is from JW website - "At the same time, the Bible allows for divorce and remarriage on one ground—sexual relations outside the marriage. (Matthew 19:9) Therefore, if you learn that your mate has been unfaithful, you have the right to terminate the marriage"
I understand Alex & his wife are not divorced but they have taken the first step.
Hope that's correct kid. Ultimately Alex is a past player now, time to move on.Restricting your partner’s spiritual growth (by losing faith / wanting to leave he religion etc) is also grounds for separation.
After separation, they’re still married in the eyes of God, but in reality they’ll just wait until one of them is seen with a new partner, and then officially “adultery has occurred” in the eyes of God and their community will approve the divorce.
Both of Alex’s retirement issues occurred within months of the global JW convention being hosted in Melbourne (2014 and 2019). Prime time for accusing a partner of not being spiritual enough. Just guessing.
Couldn't have been clearer. You're always playing a dangerous game trying to be witty in a forum. It helps just to add the *sarcasm* tag and make it easy for the strugglers.Ooops. If you were referring to my post about Jack being a selfish bastard, I thought it was obviously dripping with sarcasm.
Maybe not obviously enough?
I think I'd better skip it. Second time in a week I have come unstuck.
