Witnesses jehovah dating
“I am in love with a lady who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and I want to marry her, but I do not want her to be disfellowshipped and lose her family due to our relationship.
I am mostly concerned about her losing her parents.
If she is not a devout Jehovah’s Witness, can she walk away from this religion?
Will she still have her parents if she leaves on her own or will that be worse then being disfellowshipped (excommunicated)? I know that is not the right thing to do, but she loves me and I love her.
.: DATING AND MARRYING A JEHOVAH’S WITNESS: Should I convert to the Jehovah’s Witness religion to continue dating my Jehovah’s Witness girlfriend?
What should we expect if I don’t convert and she leaves her religion for me?
” OUR RESPONSE: Dear friend, You and your girlfriend are in a tough situation.
It is never easy to face differences in religious beliefs in any dating/marriage relationship especially when it involves family backgrounds, and the Jehovah’s Witness policy of “shunning” those who leave the religion compounds the complexities of your situation.
I want to know if we can still date if I become a Jehovah’s Witness with the purpose of continuing our dating relationship or will that pose a problem?
I want to be with her more than anything and that’s why I am asking for your help.
