I don't want to give up as I think it is still the stress of the exams that is motivating her response and that given time, we could work things out and have a very special and loving relationship. As for the Mormon cohort he will be exposed to, I have two thoughts: And so far as I could tell, it worked and no one tried to drag her husband into the church. I would never change my decision to marry him.
Then she can have a chance to actually be the individual she is, and they can have an adult conversation about their future and whether or not they have one. This means no swearing, loud talking, or making offensive jokes. She asked me the other night how it's possible for me to be such a good person when I don't believe in god. I gave her a piece of my mind as my home is much happier and healthy now then when I was married to my x. This was hugely disappointing for him and created some very tense times. She will introduce you to the church.
She likely hasn't had many long-term relationships and has no idea what dynamics are involved in one. Maybe there is wisdom behind some of the peculiarities. It has to do with their character. All of which will remind her that she wants you to convert so you can be together for eternity. I decided to sort of play along because she was amazing and I didn't believe some of the things she was telling me she actually believed. Life is suddenly wonderful, and you catch yourself smiling, humming, and happy all the time. Maybe he found a nice Mormon girl after all.
The religious differences between you two are a deal-breaking fault. I think love and caring can be more important.

I've told him multiple times that I don't care how much money he'll make, but one of his big things is that he wants to provide for me and his family in the future, with that being one of his main motivators. Chances are you can't though. But you are setting yourself up to leave the Church more easily, and even if you agree the children will be raised Mormon, your kids will likely not continue to participate in the Church as adults. Now I try to put myself in his shoes and he has always had a problem standing firm in any decision so its hard for him to say no. You will be kept abreast of political changes within the church that regulate your wife's behavior -- you are probably already aware of several rules she follows. The relationship never went anywhere but was always happy to help and he was very grateful.
