Married to a 2x2

Many people are married to 2x2s but don't know or understand much about their spouse's religion. Here are 12 signs you are married to a 2x2 and what you can do about it.

Twelve Signs You are Married to a 2x2

Here are some signs that you are married to a 2x2.

  1. They consider themselves part of the one true way and you are an "outsider" or "unbeliever" (whether you are a Christian or not). You are basically heathen to them, and hence inferior
  2. They go to annual meetings called conventions, another annual meeting they call Special meetings and attend Sunday Morning Meetings each week.
  3. Their love for you diminishes and turns to secret and later outright hatred. They lie to you (typically starts in dating and continues), lie about you to their 2x2 friends, deceive you, use guile, be cold, defraud you of marital rights etc
  4. They may live a separate life behind your back that you may not notice for a while, going to meetings, professing (joining the 2x2 religion) and getting baptized
  5. They belong to a religious group they call "the truth", "the way", "the faith" and most others call the 2x2 religion. They call their preachers/ministers/prophets (false prophets) by the word "workers". Their fellow believers they call "the friends" (short for "friends of the workers")
  6. They try to get the children to go to meetings and "profess"/join their religion.
  7. The children become ungrateful, unloving and live in sin (lie, deceive, guile, do evil)
  8. They may refinance homes, cars etc and put their assets under a trust separate from the marriage.
  9. They are overcome in faults, live in sin and wanton pleasure
  10. They may act really sweet and nice to their religious people but treat you like uh, dirt
  11. They may plan on divorce, removing money, properties as they give way to fleshly lusts

But what am I doing repeating what's already been done? Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ already warned us in his letter to Timothy:

2 Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 

This is a new page, and here are some topics I'm planning on adding: Lies, secrecy, affairs, workers, 2x2 spouse's parents interfering with your marriage, counseling, money, contempt and disrespect, no intimacy, lust, pornography, inability to reason, gossip, talking behind your back, expectation to go to meetings and profess, your family, getting counseling, why 2x2's won't tell their counselors about their religion, demons, hatred of Christians, hatred of churches, poor judgment...

I decided to put up this page after so many people have contacted me with "Help, I'm married to someone in the 2x2 religion, and I'm trying to save our marriage..." This group of pages is for your you, so you can quickly get your feet under you and understand why your spouse may be acting the way they do.

Since a marriage is more important than any asset and the marriage relationship affects every part of your life, it is critical to understand your spouse, their religion and how it all affects you. Your marriage also directly affects your health, your work/business and other relationships that you have.

This page is not about your specific relationship. I don't pretend to know what you are going through, or what you've been through. I am not a counselor etc. Please remember as you read, that I am trying to cover topics that come up, and the pages are not complete. There is much to write about. I hope that what I've written will open your eyes to things you have not considered. I hope that what I've written will be of a help to you in your difficult time.

Marriages aren't always easy. I hope you can get through your relationship and work things out. Most people who contact me about this topic end up getting divorced. Sometimes things get really ugly. If you need legal advice, please pray to God for help and find good counsel to make wise legal decisions.

Please start with links on the upper right and work your way down through the pages.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
