You weren't the only one who took it that way.

I do believe my wife will be reasonable when this does come up, obviously it's a big step but I think the gradual introduction advice is good.
I think I may start with bringing up some of my logical issues with the Bible when it does come up.

Thanks again.
Welcome!

The military is a great place to grow up. Traveling the world (or country) has given you a unique perspective on things that others are not fortunate enough to have. My military time was very eye opening at times and very disturbing other times.

All that being said, you have a profound amount of life experiences to help you explain yourself to your wife. Draw on that experience and the cultures around you to help explain how others are different and not bad people. I agree with others that you will have to slow play this to your wife, you will know how much to let out at a time to ease the transition.

Good luck.

Welcome JackX Smile

No advice but wish you luck! Very interesting and inspiring story, and proof that even with the heaviest indoctrination a a person can break free. Well played.

We'll love you just the way you are

Hi and welcome. I'm sorry you went through that awful brainwashing and abuse, too.
