Do you no longer have friends that you used to have because you think you're better then them, better mother, better wife, better Christian. vice versa, women who had friends who husbands joined the Freemasons. Did they become stuck up and holier then though towards you?
Actually I am angry alittle, as I had an ex friend just tell me how much better she is as a mother and I am a hoorable mother, although I'm not the one locking my kid in their room but hey to each their own I guess. Her husband is a Freemason and when talking to my shrink about how I was feeling about her. I was asked if her or her husband we're apart of a any fraternity/sorority and I said no but mentioned the hubby is a Freemason. She said that alot of Freemason become holier then though especially the wives. So I was asking to see if she was being truthful or not. I am so confused as to where her I'm better then you attitude came from because we were sisters then she just stabbed me in the back, it really threw me off so agian an honest questions here.Answer Question

My grandpa was a Freemason. My grandmother was one of the most down-to-earth people I've ever known--very loving and fun to be around, to everyone. I don't even think that most people knew that my grandfather was a Freemason. I didn't know until I read it in his obituary. It wasn't something that was advertised.
Have you had this problem, Anon, that friends of yours have turned their backs on you after their husbands joined? What is your experience?

My dad and brother are Masons too... my Stepmother & SIL don't even have anything to do with it. You don't have to be Christian to be a mason - my brother isn't. But, I will say the Mason took very good care of us when my Dad died suddenly at 44. They all pitched in and cooked for us for a few weeks, had the after funeral party, checked in to see if we needed to be plowed out, make sure all the "guy" stuff was done around the house. It was amazing. They are a great group of guys, and very humble too.

I think your shrink is giving you crappy advise, and might even be a little jealous that she hasn't been asked to join. To be a Mason, ask a Mason... they can't ask you to join unless you ask then how... that's their rule. Maybe if she wants to be a part of the Eastern Star (woman's branch of the Masons) she just needs to ask.
