Hi Evan, I am stuck in a very tricky situation, which came in my life because of my wrong choices. I married a man to whom I am not physically attracted. For me somehow, a certain type of face seems attractive and a certain type does not. My family likes him very much. As for me, he has a great body and is a genuinely nice person but because of my lack of physical attraction, I am just not in love with him. I did not marry him because of family pressure. I know I should have had a voice before, but what to do now? We have fights every other day over this issue and just nothing comes out of it.
My love for a married man is making me become the sort of woman I hate
Tips For Dating a Married Man Being involved in an affair with someone else’s husband is an almost surefire trip from ecstatic highs at the start to a depressing abyss at the end. Understand what you are getting into. However, that may not be practical for all women.
Several years ago I sent my only daughter off to college. My sweet Christian child who had withstood peer pressure in high school had not had many dates because she would not put out. An honors student, 6% of her class, the French club President, she was also involved in drama and a variety of.
We asked her for a bit more info on him, what he’s like, what does he do for a living, all the standard questions. She told us he was 43, has a year-old daughter and a year-old daughter, and is separated from his wife, but still legally married to her. She then went on to say she’s been dating him for 18 months now, and she feels that the relationship’s now gone into the serious stage, past all the dating and lovey-dovey stage.
Whilst I can’t stop her doing this, she’s an adult, it’s not my place to interfere in that regard, I do worry for her. She then went on to tell us over dinner that he told her only last week that he was married, he spends a few nights in his apartment, a few nights at home, he’s partially moved in there, wants to move his daughters in with him. Allison told us she likes him because he’s funny, got good taste in food and fine wines, he has a hot body [her words], and in her words “I don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks, I’ve got my man, we’re together 4 life, soulmates, you know, all that jazz.
We’re going to get married a few months after his divorce comes through. The age gap is fairly huge – 21 years, not to mention that she’s only 6 years older than his oldest daughter. She told me that she thinks she can become their stepmom, win them round. I think, in reality, it’ll be a lot tougher than she thinks, taking on a ready-made family, what if Allison wants kids? My husband is not impressed at all, but says that he’ll have to accept it, grudgingly. Allison has told us she wants us to meet him at a local Subway restaurant, she’d pay for the hoagies, so we can get to know him.
This is causing me worry, I feel my daughter is taking on a lot, at the moment she enjoys her office job, her girls’ nights out and hitting the town. I don’t want to scare her, just let her know what the reality will be like so she can make an informed choice.

There is definitely discussion going on about the type of relationship you mentioned and others types as well. I hope to have them out in the near future. However, as a single woman, this article made me sad. It put shame on me for wanting healthy friendships with the people in my life believe me, at my age of 33, all of my co-workers and friends are married , and felt accusatory: They are healthy, normal, pure, loving, Christ-honoring friendships.

We have two children, a 2 year old and a 10 month old. So, in order to protect my children and me, I am thinking about divorce. I am afraid that if I leave him without taking care of legalities, he would just get a Watchtower lawyer and have grounds to take our kids from me. We really ran into trouble when my husband decided last year that he would no longer allow me to bring our children to church.
I was devastated that he would do this. The one time I tried to stand up to him and told him that I would bring our daughter anyway, he simply held her in his arms knowing that I would not physically fight him over it, especially not in front of our newborn son. I then proceeded to begin taking our newborn son to church with me, but when he was about 5 months old, and still breastfeeding, he told me I would no longer be allowed to bring him with me either. I confronted my husband around the time he was baptized into the organization eight months ago as to whether we would be able to make a compromise by which both of us would take turns bringing the children with us to our churches.
I even offered to go with him to the Kingdom Hall once a month, so we could go as a family if my compromise was granted. He adamantly refused and stated that we would have to be split up before I could bring them with me to my church. So, this is where we have ended up. I have a job here but he is unemployed, partly because of the economy, but really because of Watchtower brainwashing.
All of this brings me to ask, if I file for divorce, what can I do to protect us if this gets dirty?
