You would be her back up plan in case she can't find a guy who is a returned missionary, preferably from a prominent LDS family. He fit me- does that make sense. It MAY be true that she will be miserable with him and make him miserable with her. I hate to say it, but I don't see this ending well. So if you feel like you both are getting serious, then talk to your girlfriend in time and sort this issue out. Please realize I know how the church works, was extremely active and raised good kids. Be gentle with them and yourself. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community.
Husband has affair with me, after telling me that he and his wife have grown apart, and we were together for five years. True Believer Mos base their actions on a set of priorities that make no sense to Nomos. In the meantime, she will probably view you as being less than a Mormon man who is a faithful priesthood holder. Plan on knowing their religion better than they do at all times. Hence, ensure that the girl or guy you want to date is above 16; although with changing times, some kids may date younger, if your love interest is not keen on going out until 16, then hold off. I have been reading this blog for a while now but this is the first time I have felt I needed to add my two cents in.
If you like your regular fix of alcohol or nicotine, then dating a Mormon probably isn't a good idea. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. I fully understand the fact that I need to do those things so I can accomplish my dream. And there is NO taking them off to wear a sleeveless shirt, cute sun dress or regular, girl-length shorts in the summer. But I can't figure out whether or not we will ever get to that stage with the current situation and I'm scared of wasting my time waiting for things to get better. Having seen many examples of the disaster it becomes when a member spouse pushes, coerces, ultimatums the non-member spouse into being baptized, I have very assiduously steered clear of those methods from the start.
Do you have a few suggestions for talking points I may want to bring up from stuff directly on LDS. And you will be shocked. Mormon's view marriages outside the temple to be counterfeit and you can't get into the temple without converting to the religion. I'm always torn between wanting to spend time together doing loads of fun things and giving him space to pursue his dream. Best wishes in whatever you decide.
