Someone already said it, but unless you are planning on converting, this is a dead end relationship. However, I believe there are rules set, and we receive certain blessings when we obey said rules. It sure has its ups and downs. I just started dating this guy and he is not only in the army, but a doctor. He will not be permitted to bless the child in front of the ward, for instance, so you will have to choose to forego that ritual or find someone else to stand in for the father, which he may not be comfortable with. Cold approaches on Mormon girls are challenging. There are many great and wonderful people in the church, and the real evil about the church is that it harms those great and wonderful people. How the Book of Mormon was translated using a sacred rock. Also, I'm having a really hard time understanding from these responses how anyone in the medical field ever dates or gets married.
You will be able to best gauge where her beliefs stand in regards to the church if you listen to how she describes her mission. Inthe same year she moved cross-country again. Have lots of sex. They took an oath and it is who they are. I am a 47 yr old Mom of a 4 yr old child with special needs who is completely alone to care for my child a good part of the time.
I let her know I'd been reading on LDS. That of course does not mean all eternal marriages should have been entered into or will succeed. You will desire to have that eternal marriage, to have that support in taking kids to church, to be able to talk docterine with a like-minded individual. Take extra care to communicate your needs once a week- don't do it every day. There is no way this will work out. So it is going to be over anyway. Yet another reason I respect doctors so much-their emotional strength. By those standards, I was a failure, my husband wasn't "good enough" - and my daughter had ambitious real goals that required a lot of time and effort. Here is hoping I manage to land myself one of them and preferably a single one!!. She has encouraged me to read LDS.
You are too young to deal with this. Nevertheless, I rarely have any trouble with setting some time aside to stay in touch with family, friends, and any woman I might be dating, as well. There are a great many beliefs I can't condone but most of them are along the lines of gender stereotyping, and how you apply that to your own life obviously varies by individual.
