” OUR RESPONSE: Dear friend, You and your girlfriend are in a tough situation.It is never easy to face differences in religious beliefs in any dating/marriage relationship especially when it involves family backgrounds, and the Jehovah’s Witness policy of “shunning” those who leave the religion compounds the complexities of your situation.Partial loyalty is simply not acceptable in this religion.
If she does not obey right away and cut her relationship off with you, she will be “disfellowshipped.” If your motive for wanting to convert is simply to win the approval of her family and the Jehovah’s Witness leadership, it will not take long before the elders in her congregation will be able to detect your limited loyalty to the organization.
It requires full commitment of your time, energy, resources, and loyalty.
If you are not willing to put the dictates of this organization and its leadership over your own personal life goals and agendas, you might as well forget the notion of becoming a Jehovah’s Witness.
I want to know if we can still date if I become a Jehovah’s Witness with the purpose of continuing our dating relationship or will that pose a problem?
I want to be with her more than anything and that’s why I am asking for your help.The simple fact that she is dating you puts her “spiritually” in a questionable light among her Jehovah’s Witness friends and relatives.
