Start with a middle-class (Brady Bunch) 21-year-old, married to an Old Family 22-year-old. I was the 21-year-old. My parents told me that I would get married at 18 to someone who would look after me. I was also told not to worry that I wasnt so great at Maths, because I wouldnt need it.
Now, marriage was pretty good, but it wasnt great. Everyones mother, father and grandmother wanted to have their say in what we did and how we did it. Still, I was being told that we were doing fine.
Enter Scientology, 1986. I handled my own attitude toward my family, and could talk to them easier. It was a bit of a shock that I was no longer a yes man (it was even a shock to my husband, who had discovered Scientology first). Now, my family and I have great, open conversations. No look what you did to me stuff. Just a group of adults sharing their views with respect and tolerance.
One of my best days happened about 2 weeks ago, when I was talking on the phone to my father (who is not a Scientologist"). He said Yes, your mother and I were just talking the other day about how well you are doing since youve been with those people. How do you like that?
My 15th wedding anniversary is coming up in June. I am sure that without Scientology, we would not have made it this far, because we would not have had the information to make the choices that were needed. I have 3 great children and am the Principal of a small independent school. I am positive that I would not have come this far had I stayed on my original course.
