You asked if you would be allowed to continue your dating relationship with this lady if you were to convert to this religion to please her Jehovah’s Witness parents.We don’t know where your personal religious beliefs stand in comparison to the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses, but if your only motivation in converting would be to continue your dating relationship, would that be an honest reason to convert, or would you be converting under a false pretense with ulterior motives?

At any point in your relationship, the elders can intervene and command her to stop dating you.

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.

The simple fact that she is dating you puts her “spiritually” in a questionable light among her Jehovah’s Witness friends and relatives.

They may have already begun to think of her as being “weak” in her faith because she is seeking a relationship with a “worldly” person.

Partial loyalty is simply not acceptable in this religion.
