Come to MEETINGS, they say
"Come to MEETINGS", your spouse tells you. "Come to MEETINGS and PROFESS and our marriage will be well."
2x2s believe their is salvation in coming to MEETINGS. That's what's part of "being saved", or so they are told. And if you don't come to MEETINGS, then that must be your problem, or so you are told.
So you do some research on their church, and you type in "workers, meetings" and then you find this guy William Irvine, a womanizer, false prophet and liar. And you ask your spouse about them. And then there is another storm in your house. More arguments and such heat and abuse that you feel like you've stepped on a hornets nets. And there you are, trying to make things better, but things got worse again. Was it your fault for checking out the religion? Why are they so angry? Why don't they know about William Irvine? When will it stop?
Why Go to MEETINGS
And so, after the blow up, explosion and whirlwind, you wonder to yourself, "If this is what people are like who go to MEETINGS, why would I ever go to MEETINGS."
And then you ask your PROFESSING spouse (if you dare, or maybe it's to silence them), "Why should I go to MEETINGS if you go to MEETINGS and act this way?" And that leads to, "Do other people who go to MEETINGS treat their spouse this way?" And you get dead silence. You've hit on something. The quietness is deafening. Have you gotten somewhere in the relationship? Is this the magic question you've been trying to find? Have you unlocked the puzzle to the marriage problems? It's your clue, that MEETINGS and the WORKERS have been a major source of problems to your marriage (well, actually, it's the devil working in the WORKERS, MEETINGS and your spouse).
Maybe you have some more questions for your PROFESSING spouse. Let me help, if you don't mind. Your mind may be so tired and over-worked that you would like some assistance:
And so, after this "little discovery" that MEETINGS play a huge role in your marriage problems, and they won't quit MEETINGS, you see that things are going nowhere, fast..really fast. And now you know why. And now you know that you don't ever want to go to MEETINGS. And it's not because you don't care about the marriage. It's because you want to maintain your sanity.
