God knows the big picture. Modest dressing is the best policy here. This woman has already given two full years fully devoted to the institution without question. Now just ask yourself what are the odds of her thinking her way out that crazy nonsense. I know my husband appreciates me looking into it because he knows I am doing it to gain an understanding into the culture he was raised in. I would bet this is exactly what she is thinking about you, which is why she is willing to have a relationship with you aren't a Mormon. Everything we do when we are together seems to be pre-planned and must be executed just so, right down to unexpectedly turning off the lights at And I can relate to the walking on eggshells feeling when they are home. Once last piece of advice to you girls who are "dating" or "engaged to" a doc: Don't confuse "dating" and "engaged to" with "married to" - get the ring on your finger and seal the deal. Great questions, and a terrific answer, Joanna.
The fact that she's planning to go on a mission should help. It is highly likely that she will pressure you to convert, and if you resist, she may resent you for being the barrier to her being sealed to her children. Mormons observe the Sabbath closely, so Sundays are for attending church meetings and focusing on their spirituality.
Plan on knowing their religion better than they do at all times. I believe in temple marriage, and in the importance of those covenants. Our communication is mostly via texts, but he keeps me in the loop at work, and I do the same. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. Yes you are all correct I am lonely but happy He's always worth the wait MMy husband is an amazing human being and an international cardiologist. With minimal support on my side and going against everything I had grown up learning, I had to trust my relationship with God. But he has been great till now. Have been MD in good relationship for 25 years with kids etc but key is that my wife has her own life and works as hard as I do at her own career and isn't caught up in my world. It's been really tough and am only hoping to see a glimpse of the reward soon, whether it is simply watching a movie and actually finish it in one sitting or finally having dinner in the same room. The woman I have feelings for is conflicted on her religion in regards to me.
I am so happy I found this blog. I feel he thinks we cannot be two masters in this boat and if I am this ambituous we may never have time to have and be a family. He probably hates even the memory of me for getting him in that stupid church. It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. Ending sooner rather than later is much easier and less painful for everybody. I really do have strong feelings for him and want to make this work… but I'm beginning to feel like I have no identity of my own anymore and I will forever just be, "the doctor's wife. You can and should share with her why you don't and never will believe in the Mormon church, and let her decide for herself, but be prepared to have that blow up in your face. I I must also say that some of them truly do have affairs even wit the best of spouses. As a Christian one's values won't allow an affair on the lonely spouse' part either - but that probably won't bug you by the sounds of it. Response to your edit: Do NOT bring up or mention anything that could be considered "anti Mormon.
