Born 6th generation Mormon.ancestors were with Joseph smith in the early years of the church. Ancestors polygamists. My great great great grandfathers sister was one of Joseph smiths wives. My mother was born Mormon, my dad was a convert. I was raised in a community where Mormons were the manority. This allowed me to see something outside of mormonism. I stopped going to church soon as I moved away from home. I didn't officially resign until about 18 years later. They just wouldn't leave me alone and they had no respect for my non Mormon husband. They wouldn't even talk to him. They would only addresse me. It was creepy. Since resigning I have had peace but as another ex Mormon friend of mine says "you have a god hole" sometimes it feels like I have no purpose. It's been 4 years since I got the letter from salt lake and at times I still strggle with who I am.
Linz, The fact that your family treated your husband so poorly speaks badly for them. Your inner self will become more and more filled, as you seek new ways to think and do things. You may chose atheism, or you may choose to see how others view the world. It's all a new and wonderful world for you to see!
