My Second Marriage
My first marriage was when I was young and probably to young to understand the concept of marriage. I also believe that I didn’t get married for the right reasons in my first marriage although I did love her. My first marriage was based on my wife getting pregnant and the way we were brought up by our parents marriage was the right way to go. I will be talking about how my first marriage made me who I am today and how my second marriage came about and how it has lasted so many years. I believe that my first marriage had a lot to do with my marriage today and who I became after that first marriage.
My younger years
Growing up I was raised in the Jehova Witness Community and therefor we were taught a lot of things that isn’t the same as what other’s belive in, nor is it what I believe in now. I was raised with a mother and father that fought constantly and didn’t get along most of the time but stayed together even though they didn’t want to. As a child I saw my parents fight constantly and this made me and my sister feel that fight was alright that all parents do this. This was the way I was raised and taught to be as a child, and this stayed with me throughout my first marriage. As a Jehova Witness we didn’t believe in divorce unless their was a specific good reason for it like abuse and adultery, so growing up I felt that fighting was a normal thing in marriage and that the only time divorce was an option was when their was cheating or abuse going on.
I was also taught that we shouldn’t have premarital sex and that we didn’t have children without being married, that this was a sin in the eyes of the Jehova Witness Community. I was also taught growing up in the Jehova Witness Community that if we commited at sin like adultery that we could be kicked out of the community, with having all of my family in the community this was something that I didn’t ever want to...
