You are a good person and she can see that. I am engaged to marry a surgeon next fall. Always taking care of our two daughters single handedly is.
To her, if you don't marry in the temple, she will probably do it after you die anyway. It's a heart-wrenching story. Love does a lot. Honestly, I don't have very good advice, but keep being you and hopefully she won't let her religion blind her like it blinded me. I'd suggest taking issue with things that specifically bug you the most. If she had to choose one issue to dedicate her life to, it would be gender equality. She sounds so indoctrinated that like even if you try to get her to open up, who knows you might get like a BJ out of it doesn't sound like it but who knowsyou have to realize that a lifetime of conditioning will be set in motion in her mind that will make your life hell. I was off travelling the world when I met and fell madly in love with a deployed Marine. The Book of Abraham one admits it's not a translation.
Choose courses based on your needs. Know her limits on substances. It has hit me that this relationship is a double standard wherein since we are not married yet, he is not obligated to help me, yet he says once I'm done with my boards and match into residency, we will get married. The LDS Church meets many of the criteria for cult behavior.
Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever. Just as secular marriages have problems, so do temple marriages. In her obviously orthodox Mormon paradigm dad's a bishop, she went to BYU and on a missionunderstand that she believes her husband must be an orthodox Mormon and get married to her in the temple. Propagandists in the media throw around the word patriarchy as if it is synonymous with anything male. Don't forget too that IF you are successful in turning the lights on and deconverting her, the family would resent you the rest of their lives. But now it also comes out that he resents my past negativity and lack of appreciation for his hard work I didn't want to talk about my issues with him because, as many of you have said, my little problems couldn't compete with what he was dealing with at work. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why.
