Praise Be!

Sounds like you two have a lot of life ahead of you!

May you build new friendships, find new adventures, and explore new positions (in life perverts)!
Thanks Red!

Seems we two monkeys have jumped off the boat of stale crackers and are swimming together towards the shore.
Dude! Virtual bro hug, high five, fist bump!

Your road to greater happiness seems to be smoothing out with an increased speed limit. Congrats!

This is amazing -- congrats.

I know it's not something you necessarily want to celebrate, but it's great that you can now navigate this whole thing together.

And no reason to feel bad for those of us still going through it -- it's always great to see the happy endings to hold on to hope. :lol:

Congrats and condolences. This is all hard stuff. But ray better when you are on the same page.

Recently my DW had started to really hit the angry phase (after many years of my quiet FC before her). Last night she was ranting, big time. She said she wishes something would just piss her off so we can leave. That sounds exciting.

However, it just isnt that simple. We are not in your same situation Redjay. We are in the MorCor. All our kids are in (but younger than yours, all still in the home). Our entire social lives, and more importantly, those of our daughters are all in, TBM circles. Leaving would have drastic consequences for them.

And then there is the extended family. We cant even talk about edgy stuff without a fight, let alone live it.

We also have some friends who have left and have been burned pretty badly by their new found freedoms. I have to be honest in saying that as a human, I am susceptible to the dangers of not having commandments. The last thing I want to do is bring sadness to our family due to addiction, infidelity, or financial risks that compliance with church standards would mostly avoid.

This is great news though Redjay. Keep us posted as this progresses.

Update. Mrs RJ has been listening to Mormon Stories on her daily commute and is appalled at the prevarication and cultishness of the church. Last night we were discussing what a reasonable and lovely person Sandra Tanner seems to be...changed days indeed.
